ZUMA REBUKES ZODWA
South African President, Jacob Zuma has rebuked, Zodwa Wabantu, for her dress sense and encouraging young women to use sxuality to get what they want.
He spoke to ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa, who called Zodwa’s manager, DJ Tira, to convey the president’s objections. DJ Tira announced on Twitter that he had received a call from Kodwa, who told him the president wanted him to reprimand Zodwa for her sxually loaded utterances.
“I honestly don’t have a problem with the way Zodwa dresses. That’s the image she prefers to portray and her fans love that about her. What I can’t tolerate are the messages she’s directing to young women,” said DJ Tira.
But DJ Tira said he was not prepared to ask her to change her image because that’s the reason she has become a drawcard at events.
Kodwa confirmed that the president told him to handle Zodwa’s behaviour. “As the spokesperson, I take orders from the president to the public, and vice versa.”
“Zuma was not happy with the way Zodwa dressed and disapproved of her recent message that went viral on social media.”
“I guess it all comes down to how she makes a living. What the president fails to understand is that her messages to the public is Zodwa’s way of increasing her popularity.”
“We hope her manager puts a stop to her behaviour,” said Kodwa.
Zodwa, a single parent of a 13-year-old son, said she worked in a call centre as a debt collector in Johannesburg previously, but didn’t enjoy that. She left her job and moved to Durban.“I’m ugly, but I’m confident about my body. After all, I’m not married, so I don’t answer to any man besides my manager (DJ Tira).
“My son and I are living a stable life from the money I make from stage appearances. As a result I built a brand new house in Nelspruit.”
