South African entertainer Zodwa Wabantu has been banned to enter Zambia to prevent public morals in the country to be corrupted.

The 32-year-old controversial dancer was scheduled to perform over the weekend in capital city Lusaka and prior to the event she had publicized through a video clip on social media to be performing without underwear.

National Guidance and Religious Affairs Minister Godfridah Sumaili said Zambia is a Christian country and they uphold values of morality and ethics.

Sumaili added, “As a nation we cannot allow such, I mean, someone performing without underwear, there’s no morality there.”

Zodwa Wabantu’s salacious dancing without wearing panties is popular in South Africa. She became orphaned at the age of nine and currently is a monther to a son. Before setting her foot in the entertainment industry she use to work for a debt collection company.

In Lusaka she was to perform during the launch of an album titled Pandemonium by Zambian musician Karasa Karayo, who defended her saying people in the country should not be negative about her performance here as she has been told about the norms of Zambia earlier.

Karayo added, “We made it clear to her that it is an adult entertainment show but the country’s values are to be respected.”

Zodwa has been banned in Zimbabwe too and this has lately sparked widespread debate online, mostly criticizing the governments of both the countries.
