Zimbabwe: Bev Challenges New Dancer

Popular dancer Beverley "Bev" Sibanda has challenged "new kid on the block" Brenda Chitsiga for a battle on the dance floor.

Chitsiga, who is affectionately known as Cocoo, is the latest find in pole dancing and has already taken parts of Harare by storm. She not only pole dances but also strips male patrons down to their underwear during her performances.

Perhaps sensing competition, Bev, who has wowed crowds with her bottle dance, dismissed Cocoo as a "habitual copycat".

"She should introduce her own thing plus vana vadiki ava (they are still young) because as we speak she is a copycat. She lied that I sacked her because she was so good but the truth is she was the one fuelling wars between me and Zoey Sifelani," she said.

Bev said the gap had been filled as she had roped in a more talented girl into the group.

"I have replaced Brenda with Heather who is more gifted and will thrill the crowd," said Bev.

Cocoo said she was not fazed by the allegations saying she was her own woman.

"Honestly, I think Bev is spoiling for a fight but I won't be dragged into that. They (Zoey and Bev) should leave me alone," she said.

Cocoo was a member of Bev's Sexy Angels before she split over allegations that she was conniving with their rival Zoey and the Red Angels.

Cocoo is the leader of the group called La-Dolce Pole Dancers who have sent tongues wagging over near nudity.
