Information reaching faceofmalawi indicates that Organizers of the Amapiano festival are planning to obtain an injunction against a decision by the Ministry of Tourism and Culture blocking South Africa’s sensational dancer Zodwa Wabantu from performing in the country.
The development follows an order by the Ministry asking the Immigration Department and the Homeland Security ministry, to ensure immigration laws apply on the issue, to bar the artist from visiting or be any part of the Amapiano event.
“The Censorship Board reviewed the application in the context of the concerns regarding her controversial stage acts, and most important Zodwa as a stage artist,”
“In processing the application, the Censorship Board had to review the picture and the video clips that are in circulation depicting Zodwa on stage and the Ministry has noted that Zodwa has built her career and fame around morally degrading stage acts which include flaunting her nudity to audience,” reads the address.
One of the organizers, Big Lu has confirmed of the development in an interview with the press.
Zodwa is booked to perform in Malawi at the Winter Amapiano Vibes on 10th June 2022 at Dominics Hotel in Blantyre.
Meanwhile, Zodwa Wabantu has confirmed of her show in Malawi.
