Zodwa Wabantu is known for her sultry dance moves, her "couldn't be bothered by what you think of me attitude", and for flexing about all the bags she's secured. 

But what many people don't know, is that the local entertainer is also very business minded, and keen on giving back to the community.

Wabantu has previously given away clothes during performances and donated R10 000 to a family with a disabled child. Now she has her sight set on community upliftment.

During a recent interview with TshisaLIVE, Wabantu said that while people still question her relevance, she wants to ensure that she's remembered and hopes to achieve this by creating a space for the youth to keep them off the streets. While Wabantu doesn't have it all figured out yet, she's considering a multi-purpose centre.

"I don't really know what the hall would exactly be for at the moment. Maybe it can be a multi-purpose centre. I see it having a cinema and young people having a place to take them away from the streets. You know, drugs and alcohol, and the like. It will, of course, have a business side to it, maybe I'll sell popcorn there or something," she told TshisaLIVE.

Meanwhile, Wabantu is building her dream home in Nelspruit.

The vosho queen recently took to Instagram to share a picture of the construction site. The house reportedly has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two garages, a living room, dining room and kitchen.
