DJ Sbu: Zahara's bank account is fit

Cape Town – Zahara has a very fit investment account even though she does not own a house or a car, reported Rolling Stone magazine.

According to DJ and TS Records co-owner Sbu Leope, the eight-time SAMA winner's financial situation is well under control.

"She is one the smartest in the game. She doesn't have a house, she doesn't have a car but her finances are handled by Nedbank.

"She has only been around for seven months but is already one of the most successful artists in the country but you don't see her running around in flashy cars.

"We need to start encouraging our artists to invest rather than saying you gotta be seen that you doing well therefore go bling bling," he said.

'Unfair to question'

The house DJ earlier said he was saddened by the criticism directed towards his company's handling of Zahara's career.

"It's unfair for people to question our credibility in being fit enough to handle her career. We have made many people successful over the years and we always make sure they are financially fit and sober minded."

He added that had it been one of the big multinational recording labels handling her career the same questions would not have been asked.

"It's more like saying if it's in black hands there is a problem. If she was under a major label like Lira who is with Sony or with EMI no one would have questioned her finances."
