A South African dancer who had gone to Zambia to perform was deported by authorities of that country as soon as she landed at the Kenneth Kaunda international airport.
Her promoter, Lucky Munakampe confirmed the deportation, saying: “I can confirm that Zodwa has been deported back to South Africa by the immigration department.
Asigning reason to the deportation, religious affairs minister of Zambia, Godfridah Sumaili is reported as saying: “Zambia is a Christian nation where morality and ethics have to be followed. We don’t expect a woman to dance without underwear.”
Zodwa may become persona non grata in most conservative African countries if she continues her vulgarism.
Last year for instance, she was reportedly stopped by the Censorship Board of Zimbabwe from performing at an annual carnival due to the same reason.
Most of contemporary artistes and dancers are under the notion that nudity sells and often times overdo it, but apparently, not every country will countenance that trend.
