Zodwa Wabantu’s provocative dance moves and racy outfits have often led to her being compared to someone who sells their body
The entertainer recently shared pictures and videos from her latest performance.
One Instagrammer was so disgusted, she reportedly accused Zodwa of public prostitution.
Zodwa is used to receiving insults on social media and simply told the user that it is not public prostitution but “indoor prostitution”.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Zodwa says comments about her allegedly being a prostitute don’t bother her at all
She added that she would rather “eat with prostitutes” than judge them for what they do.
The dancer wants to use her platform to educate people about sex work.
“It is not something to be ashamed of… I want to open a discussion about it,” she told the publication.
Zodwa revealed that she came across four prostitutes while driving around in Durban recently. She decided to stop and speak to the women.
Zodwa reportedly gave them R300 after they revealed that was how much they charged for their services.
“I didn’t interrogate them, I didn’t judge them. They are people too.”
It’s not the first time she has had to address prostitution claims
Since bursting onto the entertainment scene with her barely-there Durban July outfit in 2017, Zodwa has been called all sorts of names.
“People said I was a prostitute and compared my thighs to those of a chicken. But I won’t be brought down by these comments,” she told the Daily Sun after her Durban July appearance.
Zodwa added that she saw herself as an inspiration to women.
“Behind the short dresses and the partying is a person with a brain… I am a role model for a lot of people. People are able to face their challenges because of the example I set.”
