BLANTYRE – Malawi’s Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Wildlife has banned the visit to Malawi of South African raunchy dancer Zodwa Wabantu for the reasons of her performances being unfit for the country.
Zodwa was supposed to perform at one of the shows scheduled for June 11 2022 at Dominic’s in Blantyre.
Tourism, Culture and Wildlife minister Michael Usi said the ministry instructed the organisers not to go ahead with the event as it was deemed not fit for the country.
One of the organisers of the event Biggie Lu revealed that they are in the process of negotiating with the ministry to make them understand that their client would not perform in her controversial dressing style.
She was born Zodwa Rebecca Libram and she is a South African media personality, socialite and dancer who has been in the game since 2015.
Wabantu makes waves because she performs on stage without wearing an underwear, some that has been deemed inappropriate by critics.
In 2017, the controversial Zodwa Wabantu was banned from performing in Zimbabwe due to the nature of her performances before being deported from Zambia over similar issues less than a year later.
Zodwa also made waves on social media in 2020 regarding her breakup with her now ex-boyfriend Vusi Ngubane after she publicly accused him of being a scammer.
She has her own show called Zodwa Wabantu: Uncensored.
