Controversial South African dancer and socialite Zodwa Wabantu has been banned from a Zimbabwean national event over her nudity antics.
According Sunday Times, Wabantu was banned after a local actress, Anne Nhira, complained that the invitation for the SA dancer to the upcoming Harare International Carnival was against all ideals.
The actress had taken issue with Wabantu stating that she dances erotically with no panties and was extremely over hyped at the expense of local talent.
“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? Posed Nhira
In response, the Zimbabwean authorities through the Minister of Tourism and Hospitality said that Wabantu’s performance had been cancelled.
“I acknowledge your complaint on the above subject matter. Government position is that the artist concerned (Zodwa Wabantu) may not participate at the Harare International Carnival. In this regard, relevant authorities have been notified.” Read the letter in part.
Wabantu is known for eyebrow raising dancing moves that border on the extreme and is known not to wear panties in her high-octane routines.
