ZODWA HITS BACK AT BISHOP


A bishop in Swaziland is furious that Zodwa has been included in an upcoming gospel music festival.

Eswatini League of African Churches President Bishop Samson Hlatshwayo, warned organisers about mixing "the gospel with worldly things" and said if a festival involved gospel singers, it should only be a gospel festival.

He also questioned how one could stand up and preach, and then another performer do something opposite.

Zodwa hit back saying that the clergyman should focus on his own craft and not disrupt her getting coins.

"Gospel artists are paid, just like me, by the promoters and they can refuse money if they want. I will be there, no matter what he says. He must go to church and let people pay him in tithe and leave us to make our money."

Zodwa is one of several SA artists who were booked to perform at the Baceth Music Festival in Eswatini in August, alongside Babes Wodumo and DJ Tira.
