The much awaited two shows of South African dancer and socialite Zodwa Wabantu at Private Lounge Harare and Bulawayo respectively have been called off.
This is not the first time the dancer has forced the show promoters-Devine Assignments to cancel her shows.
Zodwa who was last month expected to tour three cities cancelled the shows at the 11th hour with no clear reasons.

STATEMENT FROM DEVINE ASSIGNMENTS ON ZODWA SHOW
Devine Assignments regrets to announce the cancellation of Zodwa Wabantu’s scheduled two show tour of Zimbabwe which was supposed to start today (Thursday December 7, 2017) in Harare and Friday December 8 in Bulawayo. While every effort was made to ensure that the socialite fulfils her scheduled appearances, in bad faith and with no communication, Zodwa has now gone incommunicado and all access lines to her are either going unanswered, or are totally off.
This is in spite of the fact that to ensure she turns up, we as an entertainment entity had sent an emissary to Durban to be her chaperone and accompany her to Harare for her tour. Although she had talked to the chaperone and promised to pick them up from the airport, Zodwa did not turn up and has been running circles around the chaperone and us.
While we appreciate that her legions of fans in Zimbabwe have been clamouring to have us bring her to the nation, our patience has worn thin and barring a very spectacular explanation from Zodwa, we will NOT be having any further dealings with her. As we had paid her, we are treating this unfortunate incident of bad faith, unprofessionalism and outright deceit as fraud and will be advised by our partners on the way forward. We deeply regret this turn of events for the fans who were anticipating the show.
