South Africa’s very own country girl, Zahara hosted an extravaganza to celebrate her 33rd birthday over the weekend.

Friends and family gathered at Lush Lounge in the west of Johannesburg to celebrate the star. Her guestlist included the likes of Nhlanhla Nciza, Aaron Molosi, Ringo Madlingozi, Tresor, Berita, and many more.

Zahara's beautiful dress was made by local fashion designer Tomi Rhikotso.

The star posted a picture of herself looking fabulous in a beautifully detailed dress by local designer Tomi Rikhotso and a gorgeous gold headpiece.

She took to the stage with Nhlanhla Nciza to serenade the guests and thanked them all on Instagram and Twitter for coming out to celebrate her birthday with her.

Even though the star has had her ups and downs with record label clashes and a battle with alcohol addiction, she put it all behind her to enjoy a very special night.

Zahara rose to stardom when she was signed by TK Nciza to TS Records after he discovered her in Eastern Cape. She went on to win several awards, including South African Music Awards (SAMA) for Best Female Artist, Album of the year, Best Selling Album and Best R&B, Soul and Reggae Album.

One of her fondest memories as an artist was being invited to the home of former president Nelson Mandela to sing for him.

The Loliwe star is currently in studio working on an album and a documentary that will detail her journey to stardom.
