Zambian Dancer Zodwa Wabantu Deported
Zambia on Saturday deported a controversial female South African dancer, Zodwa Wabantu, who is popularly known for performing without underwear, on the grounds that her performance would “undermine national values”.
The dancer had been due to perform on Saturday in Lusaka at the launch of a music album organised by a local entertainment company, Sunset Sound Production.
The organisers of the show said in a statement earlier this week that Zambia’s National Arts Council had rejected their application.
“The Council stated that… Zodwa’s performances were not in the public interest and undermined our national values,” the statement said.
