Lady Zamar Shares How She Survived Backlash After Fake R*pe Allegations Against Sjava

Lady Zamar, one of Mzansi’s highly talented female musicians, has been in the entertainment industry for many years now. However, the singer has had her fair share of drama, from rape claims to cancel culture, and tweeps constantly drag her. In the past three years and counting, the once-acclaimed singer-songwriter has barely had a music career worth mentioning.

The R*pe Allegations Lady Zama Made Against Sjava

This stems from allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse she made against her alleged ex, fellow musician Sjava. In 2019, the singer accused Sjava of rape. She claimed that the alleged rape incident happened in 2017 at the Porche-Villa Hotel and Conference Centre in Thohoyandou after a concert they attended.

“That morning, we were making out, kissing, and he had invited me into his hotel room. We had never been alone together. While this was happening, suddenly, this person starts taking off my clothes, and he raped me,” she alleged.

The case was thrown out of court in 2020 due to insufficient evidence. Lady Zamar is arguably one of the most bullied celebs. She is constantly harassed and trolled about the rape accusations, especially on Twitter.

Surviving the Drama

According to Zamar, she has survived by blocking negativity. “My mom would advise me back then not to read the negative comments on social media, and it took me time to understand that. Right now, I don’t care; you all can keep talking. Clearly, my life is interesting. If people remember their studies more than they remember my business, then they’d be happier.”

The Collide hitmaker says she is at a self-accepting phase of her life. “There is a lot of accepting I’ve had to do. A lot of introspection,” she told ZiMoja Lezinto.

“I used to think that other people’s actions reflected who I was. I used to believe that whenever someone treated me badly, it must have been something I have done. But I have learned that people’s actions are independent of me. They choose how they treat you and whether they will be nice to you and treat you with respect. All you have to do is live your best life.”

Finding Self-Acceptance

Lady Zamar’s journey to finding self-acceptance was not an easy one. It took a lot of introspection, but now she is at a place where she accepts herself for who she is. She also acknowledges that people’s actions do not define her.

Despite the bullying and trolling, Lady Zamar remains one of Mzansi’s highly talented female musicians. She has produced hit songs in the past and has the potential to do so in the future. Hopefully, with time, the drama will fade away, and she can focus on what she does best – making music.
