Zambian authorities have deported South African dancer Zodwa Wabantu because she dances without underwear, the dancer’s promoter said on Saturday.
Reports say the pantless dancer had been billed to perform at an album launch later on Saturday evening.
She was sent back when she landed in the morning at the Kenneth Kaunda international airport, according to local media.
“I can confirm that Zodwa has been deported back to South Africa by the immigration department,” her promoter Lucky Munakampe told AFP.
It was learned that Zambia’s religious affairs minister Godfridah Sumaili had told newsmen last week that Zodwa would not be allowed to perform in the country.
Zimbabwe Herald had reported in January that Nigerian singer Davido had sought to feature the singer in his upcoming music video.
