Local entertainer Zodwa Wabantu has called on fans to not fight with Zambians in South Africa following her deportation from Zambia on Saturday. 

Following her return to South African shores, Wabantu has called on her fans to not lash out at Zambians living in South Africa. 

Speaking to TsishaLIVE, Wabantu asked that her fans not "confront" or "fight" with Zambians stating that "we are all Africans" and "all brothers and sisters".

"I had people saying things about Zambians, that they would confront them or fight them. I don't want that. We are all African and we are all brothers and sisters. I am not fighting and I don't want my fans to either."

This comes after Wabantu received a letter from the National Zambian Arts Council upon her arrival in the country which read: “Based on the preview of some of her shows in other countries, the continuation of the show will be contrary to public interest and will undermine our national values.”

Wabantu was then put on the first flight back to South Africa. 

The socialite was billed to perform on Saturday in Lusaka at the launch of a music album organised by a local entertainment company, Sunset Sound Production.
