    What country are you located in? Black and white wires imply North America but the wire colors for your fixture don’t. Also, your terminology doesn’t make sense. You should have a hot, a neutral and a ground, not two “lives” and a “zero”.

    Red & yellow wires are perfectly legal for hot wires in the US if they are individual wires run in conduit. Pics are needed so we can see what you're seeing.

    And if in conduit, the whites are supposed to be neutrals. Two hots do make life interesting. One should be a continuation to something else(and dead if not connected) or a switch hot.
