Zodwa first sparked suspicions when she posted a picture of herself wearing traditional attire, in a lake holding animal horns. She later confirmed that she has an ancestral calling that would not necessarily see her as a sangoma in practice.

Though her ways have always been questioned by many, she still stuck to her guns and said she would not change her ways as this is who she is and exotic dancing is how she makes her money.

Ntsiki Mazwai took to Twitter and criticized Zodwa saying she is disrespecting African spirituality, “OK, I need to sit down and ask what kind of a sangoma shows her vagina for a living? We keep disrespecting African spiritually. Which stripper is a pastor publicly and unashamedly without being held accountable by some religious authority?”

She then added that "your face" is disgusting, and added a sick emoji.

This is the video Ntsiki was talking about.

Hitting back at Ntsiki, Zodwa Wabantu told TshisaLive that she would not change who and what she does because she is doing what her ancestors want her to do. “This is my job. You know, my ancestors gave it to me. My great-grandfather was the one who was famous. All the travelling that I’ve done or I’m still doing, I don’t think they will make me live bad ... [or] change my living conditions, because they know I’m their child from now, as long as I go wherever they send me.”

Zodwa then said her ancestors are blessing her with the gigs she gets so that means they still want her to continue.

“The dreams that I’m having, the prophecies that I tell people ... so if there’s going to be a time that they are going to stop my dancing as Zodwa Wabantu, they should show me which job they are going to give me, so that’s why my cameo on Black Door, it could be them maybe saying you can still make your cash this side. But they haven’t revealed so much, the ancestors, and I’m still getting bookings.”

She plans on keeping things the way they are.

Zodwa questioned why people criticise her for doing her and not people who do regular jobs while wearing their traditional wrist bands, “It’s just that because with me everything that I do is taboo and it's extra.”

Explaining why she said this about Zodwa, Ntsiki told the publication that there should be an uproar when Zodwa dances in the nude.

When she revealed her spiritual calling, Zodwa told IOL she would never let go of her love for ben 10's. This is because with people with callings have been told to conduct themselves in respectable manners. 

“I told them that I love sex. And I won't stop having sex. Even if they take my Ben 10, they must know that I will find another one. I've even asked them not to take my money. Even if they instruct me to stop dancing naked, I'll obey but if they want me to continue making my fans happy so be it. But I've surrendered to the gift.“
