JOHANNESBURG — Entertainer and dancer Zodwa Wabantu has revealed that contrary to popular belief, she does not “crave” attention and is purely here to make money, while growing her network.
The entertainer said she does not care what people think of her.
“Look, I am the realest person I know. I don’t compromise on who I am to please society. If I want to wear a dress that shows off my thigh and cellulite then I’ll do it. My dress was fashion forward and I loved it [The dress that got tongues wagging at the Durban July],” she said.
Zodwa said she didn’t view herself as a celebrity.
“I get bookings and I am paid well to be me; to dance, take pictures and greet people that love and support me at different places and events. My focus is on my talent and money, I am not a celebrity or a wanna be,” she said.
Zodwa has been booked by international clients and has made friends in the industry such as DJ Tira, whom she calls “a smart man”.
Tira said Afrotainment now handled some of Zodwa’s bookings and that they charged a minimum of R25 000 for the entertainer.
“Zodwa is a wonderful person, who is a born entertainer. After we were booked by the same client in the United Kingdom, we developed a working relationship, where Afrotainment now handles her bookings, which start form R25 000. She gets bookings from all over, places like Botswana and Swaziland,” he said. –Times Live
