Her real name Margaret Mary Oluwatoyin Ejiro
Joseph , she was in early 2012 diagnosed with
Multiple Sclerosis after travelling to the US in

Zara says she was surprised when she learnt she
had been diagnosed with the disease. “My family
had to travel me to the US for better hospitals to
fully diagnose and understand what was wrong with
me”, she told NET via Skype in April.

gradually, starting with muscle weakness and
numbness. Right now, Zara is suffering from visual
disturbances, trouble with coordination and
balance, thinking and memory problems, double

of courage has called upon fans and friends to help
in raising funds to pay her hospital fees. Taking time
to record a mini-video while receiving treatment in
the hospital, she finally revealed to the world her

with the target to raise $23,000. So far $12,094
has been raised. Her current manager says a
GTBank account will also be opened for local

have a huge testimony. Every day I tell him thank
you. I am grateful”, Zara says.

2013. ‘The plan is for her to release her ‘Colours of
my Heart’ EP. She will be returning in September
too’, IK Tripz told NET over the phone. Zara also
