A picture has been trending on social media and it’s apparently of Zodwa Wabantu back in the day, before the fame. The noticeably thinner and darker skinned Zodwa can be seen dancing with a bottle of alcohol in hand. If it weren’t for this signature pose of hers, many would not have believed that the picture is really her.
The pic was shared on social media by many Mzansi tweeps including Twitter user Buz_vii who captioned it: “Before you give up. Just know Zodwa wabantu started from the bottom naye. Trust the process” Many were quick to point out that Zodwa Wabantu now looks thicker. They believed that her new look was courtesy of a ‘thicker’ bank account.
