Rumours had it last year that Nigeria’s Davido wants to marry, the Zimbabwean dancer known for dancing without underwear on stage. Now it seems Davido wants to cash in on that unfounded rumour as he moves to find Wabantu and have her perform in his upcoming music video.
According to the media news site where the marriage rumour started, Zimbabwe’s Herald, the collaboration between Davido and Zodwa, who is known as Queen of Vosso, is being arranged by Afrotainment boss, DJ Tira. The report said Davido had sought Tira’s help to get Wabantu to feature in his upcoming music video after David reached out to him on Twitter.
We don’t know whether she will be performing with or without underwear. However, Wabantu doesn’t like to be censored. Once she refused to perform in Harare because the show organisers wanted her to perform with her pants on.
You all know how the censorship board in Nigeria reacts over such videos. Remember Chimamanda Adichie’s Half of a Yellow Sun movie adaptation? Flavours Panti No n’ Iro? Phyno’s Yayo? Olamide’s Indomie? None? Google them. The body is known for banning songs when they are almost fading and fans are done dancing and watching it. Besides YouTube is still handy.
No date has been announced yet for the video shoot nor has the music video in question been made known to the public but we sure can’t expect less from Davido in this international collaboration. We also expect that Nigerians will troll the video when it’s actually released, hopefully, with the dancer being her real self.
