Zodwa has been banned from performing in Zambia this weekend. But she has said that she has a contract to perform and will be rocking up with no panties.


The National Guidance and Religious Affairs Minister, Godfridah Sumaili, told state-run newspaper The Times of Zambia that Zodwa was not welcome in the country and was promoting immorality with her shows.

He said Zambia was a Christian nation that promoted values. However, a letter seen by TshisaLIVE shows that promoters and Zodwa’s team had agreed to have her in the country to perform this weekend and had paid Zodwa’s R35,000 booking fee in full.

Zodwa said that nothing would stop her from performing in the country and slammed “hypocrites” who had labelled her “unchristian.”

“I have signed all the paperwork and I am flying out later this week to perform there. I think that people are just trying to sabotage me and the event. The underwear thing is my choice and I don’t understand why people are so upset. There are Christians who do much worse things behind closed doors.”

She said that authorities were hoping to pray for her and cast out her “demons” while she was in the country.

“I will never wear a panty. I won’t change who I am for them. Maybe they think they will pray for me or make me better. I survived 2017 and I will survive this year. They can go and f*ck off if they have a problem with it.”
