THEIR earth shuttering dance moves have made them a sensation on social media, where videos of them shaking their thunder thighs have sent the tongues of many fans and followers wagging.
Over the past year, South African divas Babes Wodumo and Zodwa Wabantu have redefined how people view entertainment.
While Babes musical output is little, Zodwa has no music to her name and has been propelled to stardom simply by the power of her explosive dance moves.
Now they are coming to Bulawayo.
These two unconventional superstars will both descend on the City of Kings in the next few weeks.
First Zodwa Wabantu makes her debut appearance in Bulawayo with an appearance at Club Connect on 29 July as a regular celebrity visitor. For a night, Bulawayo revellers will rub shoulders, or thighs, with the lady who has made such nightspots as Durban’s Eyadini the place to be just by her mere presence.
Club Connect spokesperson Zandile Moyo said that admirers would be given the chance to mix and mingle with Zodwa during a night that promises to be epic.
“Wherever she goes she is the life of the party and when she comes to Club Connect next Saturday it will be no different. This is a rare opportunity and followers who have admired her from videos on social media should take the opportunity to come and see her in the flesh,” said Moyo.
While Zodwa has chosen a club as the official venue for her Bulawayo visit, Babes will switch it up for her first appearance in the City of Kings as she will perform at the Large City Hall Car Park on 1 September.
Many had hoped that the West Ink signee would make her maiden appearance in Bulawayo at the Kalawa
Homecoming last year but she pulled out at the last minute alongside Big Nuz’s Mampintsha.
While the popularity of Wololo has fizzled, Babes is still hot property, something that the organisers of the gig are counting on.
“As 2Kings we want to provide the best in entertainment for the people of Zimbabwe and booking Babes Wodumo is in line with that thinking. In addition to her we will have Soul Jah and other performers we’re yet to announce,” said Terminator Makoni of 2Kings entertainment.
