Instagram user trolls Zodwa, says she is no longer popular
His response reads:
"I think being a sangoma made you less popular. I suppose it is not lucrative enough for you anymore as opposed to your dancing. Think about it. You are now more focused on being a sangoma if not, you would not have entered it. For me, you no longer appeal to me ever since."
The user faced backlash from many people, including Zodwa, but her response was rather more classy.
Zodwa says she would chose her ancestors over fame
The exotic dancer was not about to let a troll bully because of her ancestral journey. She revealed that she had an ultimatum to choose between her controversial career and her ancestors.
Zodwa also said she has outgrown the stage of being Zodwa the nightclub dancer
"I understand you truly. I had to choose between Zodwa Wabantu and them and I chose them that’s why I’m not popular, but I’m Powerful. This is about forseeing certain things and working with people.
"Every stage of life there are different Universities I passed Zodwa Wabantu now I’m This. I love them more than Zodwa Wabantu, but I hear you.
Zodwa then shared that she had to grow in order to reach the milestone she reached.
"I appreciate she has to Grow now I didn’t know that I was special to my ancestors."
Briefly News got in touch with a traditional healer by the name of Gogo Shozi, who shed light on Zodwa's post.
Shozi highlighted the importance of sacrifice if one is called and obeying the ancestors. Sacrifice in the sense that some people give up their jobs, whether willingly or unwillingly, to focus full-time on their calling. In other instances, their lifestyles or any aspect of their lives that might hinder, delay or disrupt their journey.
"It is not easy at all but the reward is worth it in the end."
SA applauds Lesotho for banning Zodwa Wabantu
In a previous report from Briefly News, Zodwa Wabantu was allegedly banned from entering Lesotho. A letter from the government circulated on social media and it said that Zodwa's exotic dancing in skimpy clothing is the reason for her being unwelcome.
The government argued that the country is big on public decency. South Africans supported this decision, with some saying SA should follow suit.
