From a Shebeen Queen to Drama Queen, Vosho Queen and now an Actress Queen, Zodwa Wabantu continues to shine in her career.
Zodwa has declared war on anyone who thinks of attempting to stop her progress.
“To those two Mzansi Actresses who gave me Attention & time to talk and Discuss me, listen up I’m coming to take your Jobs. I’m still a Shebeen Queen, Drama Queen, Vosho Queen and now an Actress Queen for future bheka izindaba zakho if awufuni ngikuthathele umsebenzi. You are not favourites, don’t forget. It’s business they will replace you ohhhh yes I said it,” – Zodwa said on her Instagram account.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Wabantu, who recently made a guest appearance on SABC 1’s Uzalo, said “my life is moving at such a fast but amazing pace. People, really established actors, decided to sit down and have tea with my name. I bet they didn’t know that they touched the wrong name. Right now, I am signing contracts left, right and centre. It’s because they spoke ill of me, thinking they are tarnishing my name but all the while they were making me relevant in their space.”
The entertainer said she respects the production where the actresses work for, but she’s not afraid of mentioning them.
“While I am not afraid of mentioning people who come for me, I opted to just say actresses because I respect the productions they work for. Just in case, I end up on Isibaya one day, they must know as a production that I respect them.”
Wabantu also mentioned that some people think they are ‘irreplaceable.’
“People tend to think they are irreplaceable and I think that’s dumb because I haven’t even been here for that long but I know for a fact no one is irreplaceable. It’s the industry way.”
