Zodwa Wabantu: Why hate on me but not JLo?
Vosho queen Zodwa Wabantu pulled out all the stops for the Vodacom Durban July with her revealing black dress on Saturday.The local entertainer confirmed that the black sheer dress she wore, without a panty of course, was inspired by a dress Jenner Lopez wore.
What left her perturbed was the fact that people were hating on her black dress while they seem to not have the same energy for criticism when it comes to international stars.
Speaking to TsishaLIVE, Wabantu detailed her sentiment regarding the double standard with her choice of clothing.
"People knew that they would be exposed if they came for me because, in SA, it's okay for Beyoncé and Rihanna to be naked and be inspirational but Zodwa is trashy. They couldn't judge my dress because they didn't judge J.Lo for hers. It exposes people's double standards but my people know what I stand for. That's all that matters."

Furthermore, Wabantu said she is unbothered by people's comments on her dress sense because she is helping other women gain confidence in their bodies.
"I have said over and over that I am living my life for me but more and more I realise that even when I try to do my own thing it affects others anyway. Like on Saturday, I got so much love, with women just saying that my confidence in my body and anything I do has helped them develop theirs."
