HARARE – Popular South African socialite Zodwa Wabantu will arrive in the country this afternoon where she will finally showcase at Harare’s Private Lounge tonight for the first time after failing twice to perform in the capital city.
Zodwa, who abruptly called off her three-city tour of Zimbabwe early this month because of her fear of former president Robert Mugabe, is expected to meet her adoring fans who have been patiently waiting for her appearance at Private Lounge, the home of adult entertainment.
A spokesperson for Private Lounge said this showcase will only be for adults and Zodwa will showcase after midnight. “There will be strict rules for this show as this is an adults only performance. So those below the age of 18 will not be allowed entry.”
After her performance tonight, tomorrow Zodwa flies to Bulawayo where she is expected to fill Club Connect to the rafters like what she did when she debuted there early this year.
If Zodwa finally makes an appearance in Harare tonight as scheduled, it will put an end to one of the most controversial tours in recent memory. The socialite has twice postponed her tour at the eleventh hour.
On the other hand, the equally controversial Bev who in the past has complained why promoters were crazy about Zodwa coming to Zimbabwe instead of hiring her has been given a slot to showcase at Harare’s City Sports Bar tonight by the same promoters for both events — Devine Assignments. There she will have to prove her pulling power.
Bev has also complained that Zimbos prefer to see the Brazilian Samba girls while she can dance even better than them.
Despite Bev’s bravado, Zodwa, is expected to draw capacity crowds both in Harare and Bulawayo.
