Tweeps are sending their condolence messages after reading the tweets, they haven’t been any official message from the family confirming the death of Zahara. Last week, the singer’s situation deteriorated and she was reportedly unresponsive.

The statement read: “Unfortunately, even though our daughter’s hospitalisation has been of strict confidentiality within our family and close friends, that hasn’t stopped the spread of disingenuous information on the internet. We want to stress that any reliable information regarding Zahara’s health will be communicated via her official social media platforms or by herself,”
