‘I’m still going’ – Zodwa Wabantu’s bags are packed for Zimbabwe

on

Despite the controversy surrounding her upcoming performance at the Harare International Carnivalโ€š Zodwa Wabantu is still adamant he will be in Zimbabwe and will have the best time of her life!

This after it emerged on Wednesday that Zim actressโ€š Anne Nhira had apparently succeeded in Zodwa being banned from performing at the carnival. Anne sent a letter of complaint to Zimbabwean officials complaining that Zodwa was being booked at the expense of local talent.

Anne later shared proof of communication between her and the Acting Minister of Tourism Patrick Zhuwaoโ€š in which he seemingly confirmed that Zodwa โ€œmay not participateโ€ in the carnival.

Zodwaโ€™s apparent banning from the event went viral and created widespread debateโ€š but according to her no official confirmation of the cancellation has been given to her.

The dancer told TshisaLIVE that she had a conversation with the carnival organiserโ€š who told her it was all systems go for her trip.

โ€œThe gentleman from the organisers I spoke to yesterday said I must not consider social media news as a cancellationโ€š because until I get a cancellation letter from them I am still booked. I also told them to rather provide an outfit for me if they feel the need toโ€š especially the panty they were worried about. Nothing will stop me from going to Zimbabweโ€š I love those people and they love meโ€šโ€ she said.

Zodwa said she was ready for her trip and remains steadfast about performing at the carnival.

โ€œI am ready for my trip to Zimbabweโ€š as youโ€™ve seenโ€š Iโ€™ve even posted my gigs on social media. Iโ€™ll perform at the private club on the September 8 and at the carnival on September 9. Iโ€™ll be traveling by myself because I donโ€™t need a glam squad or anything like that and I am looking forward to itโ€šโ€ she said.

Zodwa has been a subject of many tabloid ย headlines for the past two weeks after Zimbabwean authorities said she could not perform at the carnival if she did not wear underwear.
