Zodwa Wabantu Banned From Performing At Zim Carnival


While she may have resolved to wear undies in order to please her Zim fans, sultry entertainer Zodwa Wabantu has been officially banned from performing in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwean government officials have now banned the musician from appearing at an event she was booked for after a complaint from a local actress in the country. This comes just a day after apologising for imposing a “panty restriction” on the dancer who is known for dancing in a scanty outfit.

Zodwa Wabantu was scheduled to make an appearance at the Harare International Carnival, a prestigious event which would have traditional leaders present. Thus, she was told that she would need to wear underwear as the traditional prime ministers would not appreciate her signature look. The condition didn’t go down well with Zodwa who argued that the Zim officials knew what she represented, so she wondered why they would offer her the gig in the first place.

Nevertheless, what led to the cancellation of Zodwa’s gig was that some Midrand based and failed Zimbabwean actress cum Forex Trader by the name of Anne Nhira complained to the Zimbabwean tourism board that Wabantu should not be invited to the event because she was not a Zimbabwean, she dressed scantily and she was a lesbian. “Zodwa dances with no panties and posts naked pictures on social media. How does that qualify her to be a Zimbabwe national tourist attraction and to attend a function of the highest stature this year?

Our sources from Zimbabwe informed us that the ban may more more political muscle flexing to revenge the widely reported assault case against the country’s first lady, Grace Mugabe.

In another twist of events, multitudes of Zimbabwean who disagree with the ban flocked on Anne Nhira’s Facebook profile, where all sorts of insults were hurled at the forex trader. At the time of writing this article, there were more than 7000 comments on the post.

Zodwa waBantu was interviews by a Zimbabwean radio station, where he expressed her disappointment over the whole issue. She however did point out that she was prepared to revenge the ban and ensure the lady who got her banned also did not have an easy time in South Africa.
