Zodwa Wabantu says she kept her bra and G-string on for her sold-out performance at The Summit strip club in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, at the weekend.
The Soweto-born provocateur, who now lives in Durban, described her much anticipated show at the home of strippers as beautiful.
“I’ve never seen anything like it. It was packed and they were all happy. I was paid upfront, but I was given more money through tips,” she said.
“I imitated the ladies who work there, but I couldn’t take off my bra or G-string. I wore a transparent net. I also tried pole dancing, but I failed. It was too hard, I thought I could pull it off but I’m stiff.”
Wabantu said she would return to the strip club anytime.
“I love money, I’d do it again.”
Meanwhile, the popular entertainer has quashed claims of a brewing feud between her and another SA entertainer Skolopad. She explained that she just does not want to be painted with the same brush as her and that they are vying for different things.
After refusing to take a picture with Skolopad at the recent Feather Award nominations event, Zodwa’s action led to speculation on social media that she has something against Skolopad.
However, Zodwa has set the record straight.
“Skolopad says she sings. I don’t sing. Even on her Instagram, I don’t see exactly what she’s about. Is she after money or what? She’s just there… (Saying things like) Euphonik I want to help you get over Bonang and stuff.
“She goes to every award ceremony for the sake of it, nominated or not. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s her thing. She’s here for the fame, I’m here for the money. That’s why we don’t mix,” she explained.
Skolopad burst into the spotlight after she stole the show with a revealing yellow dress at the Metro FM Music Awards earlier this year. She then continuously hogged headlines for her risqué poses, semi-nak ed outfits and attempts to introduce people to her music.
Zodwa said she wants to “hang out” with people who contribute to her career and share the same passion of “making money” and Skolopad is not one of them.
She explained that her interaction with Skolopad began back at the 2017 Durban July when Skolopad called and wanted to “hang out”. Zodwa claims Skolopad wanted them to be “buddies” and although she initially did not object, the meeting never happened.
