Socialite and entertainer Zodwa Wabantu has hit back at Zimbabwean actress Anne Nhira who got her banned from performing at a gig in Zimbabwe. Anne wrote a letter to the Zimbabwe government expressing how she feels Zodwa Wabantu didn’t show the right image as a performer.
After that ban an infuriated Zodwa spoke out about the incident. “To be honest I don’t even understand where she is coming from. If I was a nobody, I wouldn’t have received the invite in the first place. So maybe it comes from a place of jealousy. Why would a person just randomly write such a letter?”, Zodwa told TshisaLive.
“I don’t even know who that woman is but I feel she is causing more damage than she is aware. I went through her Facebook and because of the support that I have – people were attacking her. They were saying she is taking food from my mouth and that her actions might even cause xenophobic attacks. The carnival is meant to unite the continent and attract people to Zimbabwe for tourism, but she is working against that,” she added.
Zodwa said despite this recent drama she will stay who she is and is not moved at all.
