Kwa-Zulu Natal socialite and dancer Zodwa Wabantu has scored a R180 000 gig in Lagos, Nigeria. She is billed to perform alongside Africa’s biggest artists like Tekno and Davido.
According to sources who work closely with Dj Tira’s Afrotainment, a company that manages Zodwa, she will be heading to Lagos for the first time next month to flaunt her sexy dance moves.
“People in Nigeria are crazy about Zodwa. They have been trying to book her but because of her tight schedule she couldn’t accept the gigs. Zodwa has travelled to Canada, United Kingdom, United States and Switzerland but now she wants to concentrate on the African continent,” she said on condition of anonymity because she was not allowed to communicate with media.
“She has already been to African countries like Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Mozambique. Before the end of this she will travel Zambia and other countries. She is in huge demand all over Africa,” she added.
Early this month Zodwa was booked to perform in Zimbabwe but her booking was cancelled after some politicians complained about her not wearing panties.
Zodwa was quoted by Times Live saying “I am angry that they are always dragging my name and brand through the mud. The reports have all been about what they say about me and how they are trying to stop me performing. I have had enquiries from around the world but they have all wanted to know more about my trip than about my career. It is not right”.
