Zodwa Wabantu's fans were out of hand.
21 August 2019

Cape Town — The controversial dancer and socialite Zodwa Wabantu is trending online after fans took things too far.

Zodwa gave some of her fans the opportunity of getting closer to her but what happened next was unbelievable - and for some - disgusting.

A video circulating online shows some fans touching her, and she seems unbothered. It is unclear where and when the video was taken, but male fans can be seen reaching for her private parts.

Zodwa's rise to fame has been nothing short of a fairy tale. She became popular for dancing without underwear at Durban's Eyadini Lounge and has since climbed the entertainment ladder, both locally and internationally.

The video has sparked a debate online: some question why the men are doing that and others are asking why Zodwa is letting them to do that.

Tweeps couldn't wait to air their views:
