Zodwa has denied that she is homophobic after her comments sparked a major uproar.

Zodwa said gay people were silly and should accept that they did not have vaginas. The comment left many aggrieved and started the #ZondwaCancelled.

But Zodwa told Sowetan that said she was talking about her own gay friends.

"How can I be homophobic when I have more than 20 gay friends. Even my designer is gay. I was talking about my friends. I am talking about something that I have observed about them since they are my friends. Anyway that is a reality show, I am calling it as I see it."

The Durban-based socialite said during the show: "Gays are silly because they are fighting with women. Name one gay who has never fought with a woman in the industry. Their problem is that they (gays) are convinced that they have a vagina, while they have a penis...

"We accommodate you guys because you wear make-up and when we (women ) talk about men you always there echoing the stories."
