Zodwa Rebecca Libram, widely recognized as Zodwa Wabantu, consistently makes headlines for her bold and uninhibited approach to dancing at public events, often with minimal clothing. In August, she faced a setback when she was denied entry into Lesotho, leading to the cancellation of a festival where she was slated to headline.
Zodwa Wabantu video viral
In the wake of Zoleka Mandela’s passing, South Africans were not only grappling with the news but also confronted with a video posted by Zodwa Wabantu on her Instagram timeline. The explicit video featured her scantily dressed, lying on her back with legs apart, a move that stirred further controversy.
The accompanying caption read, “Vula Kuvaliwe. How many of you have entered here? Mina Ngihlanganaphi nokuthi Ucabangani Ngami?” translated as “I open where it is closed. How many of you have entered here? How is what you think of me my concern?”
Despite the provocative nature of her public persona, Zodwa opened up in a January 2022 interview with IOL about what she believes is a spiritual calling. She clarified that while she has accepted a calling, it is not in the traditional healer (sangoma) capacity. Zodwa emphasizes having a unique spiritual calling that influences her behavior and encourages others to respect this aspect of her life.
Known for her carefree attitude, Zodwa unabashedly ignores public opinions about her. In a recent Instagram post, she shared a photo of herself dancing nude in public, unswayed by the onlookers who were capturing the moment on camera. This attitude, coupled with her proclaimed spiritual calling, continues to define Zodwa Wabantu’s public persona.
