Socialite and dancer Zodwa Wabantu has become one of the most talked about people in South Africa.

She went from just being a regular at Durban's popular spot Eyadini dancing and enjoying herself to charging thousands for her appearance fee. As much as Zodwa is receiving all this love all over she told DRUM in a recent interview that her own community doesn't accept her. 

"I've been rejected by my own community in Soweto for being different and real. I have been called all sorts of names- sl*t, wh*re, b*tch, they've used them all. They couldn't accept me for who I am," Zodwa tells DRUM.

Zodwa says her thick skin and doing what she feels is right for her is what has made her the person she is today.

"The thing is, I do what I feel like, I don't care about what people say. You guys care too much about other people's opinions," Zodwa says.

Zodwa has a large following and with time it seems to be growing fast.
