Zodwa Wabantu, a South African dancer, has been barred from participating in a show in Malawi by the Malawi Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Wildlife.
On June 11, 2022, the performance was scheduled to take place at Dominic’s in Blantyre.
The entertainer, whose true name is Rebecca Libram, is notorious for performing half-naked and without panties on stage.
Michael Usi, Malawi’s Minister of Tourism, Culture, and Wildlife, said on Friday, June 3 that his agency has warned the show’s organizers that the event is unfit for Malawi.
However, one of the organisers of the event Biggie Lu said Zodwa Wabantu, was not expected to perform pantless in Malawi.
Her concert in Zimbabwe was canceled in 2017 when she reportedly refused to perform in her underwear.
In 2018, the musician was also barred from performing in Zambia, with officials claiming that her public appearances jeopardize the country’s “national values.”
