Zodwa Wabantu reacts to rumors of being broke


Zodwa Wabantu reacts to rumors of being broke.

Speaking to ZiMoja, the entertainer says she is not broke, but bookings are not like before.

The star says she is not living a lavish life, hence cutting her fabric according to her size.

“I’m not a flashy person. I have always lived a simple life. I don’t wear make-up or put on weaves and I focus on investing my money in things that matter,” she says.

“Yes, I will admit that the bookings are not the same. But this is because of the economic climate. Everyone is struggling, and the cost of living has gone up. But for me, it is because I have chosen to invest my money and more of my time edlozini. Everything I do these days is to appease idlozi.”

She claimed to turn down an invitation for Amapiano awards in other to save money.

“I know when I got there, I have to buy something sexy to wear, get my make-up, and fix my hair. I had to choose between saving that money for idlozi because it will benefit me in the end.”

However, Zodwa Wabantu says there’s nothing shameful about being broke; the dancer says she doesn’t need to hide if she was truly broke.

“If I was broke, I would talk about it, I am an open book. Nothing of mine is a secret. Dancing naked pays my bills. It’s who I am and that is what people love about me. I am free, I don’t fake it and I will never stop until the time is right.”

“Let’s not put fear on brokenness as black people and society. There’s nothing wrong with being broke at times or going through financial strains, as long as you work on fixing things. Mina, I have never cried to anyone for money for groceries.”
