Zodwa Wabantu Background

All it took was a little black dress to set Zodwa Wabantu on the path to stardom. The entertainer, who made a name for herself as a dancer at KwaZulu-Natal’s famous Eyadini Lounge, became the talk of the town in 2017 when she wore a thigh-baring dress to the Durban July.  The racy outfit exposed her buttocks and raised more than a few eyebrows. 

The jar-dropping moment helped make her a national celebrity, with club managers falling over themselves to book South Africa’s new dance sensation. Zodwa calls Durban home but she is originally from Soweto. She grew up in a poor household and often speaks about how she had to fight for food to survive. Her mother died when she was just 11 years old, leaving her grandmother to look after her. Zodwa’s father was never in the picture.

She left home at the age of 16 and had to fend for herself with odd jobs, including work as a dancer. Zodwa moved to Durban after getting an offer to work at a debt collection company. She did not give up on the nightlife and continued to dance at shisanyama's in Durban’s townships, where she earned her “Vosho Queen” title.
