Celebrities who struggled with alcohol and drugs

Muzi Mthabela

After several failed attempts to leave, the actor decided to retire three years ago. He confesses that he made this choice in order to better himself and to honor God, his wife, and his children. Muzi claimed in an interview that when he first started drinking, he was still a boy and that it seemed cool to do so at the time. He began with ciders before transitioning to beers and alcoholic beverages. He acknowledged that while intoxicated, he made a lot of mistakes and that rapper Jub Jub's involvement in an accident due to the same factor opened his eyes.

Nkayi Unathi

The radio and television star has said that she used alcohol as a coping mechanism throughout her divorce. Unathi claimed that she would put on a brave face when at work and among her kids, and that at night she would drown her sorrows in alcohol until she made the decision to get assistance and improve herself.

Bongani Fassie

After the loss of late Superstar Brenda Fassie, Bongani had a lot to deal with. In a recent episode of Dstv's Moja Love, Bongani discussed the challenges he faced in the wake of his mother's passing. He admitted to abusing booze and narcotics. Despite attending recovery, he continued to relapse. He announced at the end of his program that he was entering treatment and that he was doing it for his children because he was now a father.


According to the Ndiza hitmaker, the strain that came with her stardom caused her problems, not booze. Due to struggles and negative exposure, Zahara became a slave to booze.

Mabalane Kabelo

The former Kwaito singer claimed that he initially used booze and marijuana. Later, he began using cocaine, to which he developed an addiction.
