Artist and socialite Zodwa Wabantu has criticized entertainer Skolopad, accusing the star of being a newborn child in the business and looking for consideration with “irritating moves”.
Strain between the two apparently erupted at the Feather Awards party in Johannesburg on Thursday after Zodwa declined to take a photo with Skolopad.
“I was sitting behind her (Zodwa) and when I asked if we could take a picture together she refused and said that it was not good for her brand. I don’t understand how taking a picture can be wrong but I am not angry with her, I am just confused. I don’t have an issue with her, she looked beautiful,” Skolopad said.
However, Zodwa did not feel the same way about Skolopad, and said that Skolopad needed to focus on making money and not chase fame.
“I’m not threatened by Skolopad, she is still crawling in this game. We are in a very fast industry and don’t know what tomorrow holds for us, so it’s time to make money. Skolopad forgets that we are ageing and when the opportunity lands on your lap you grab it with both hands. I’m not here to play games but to make money,” Zodwa said.
Zodwa said she planned to leave the industry in 2019 to “buy a house, car and fall pregnant,” and was not interested in taking part in publicity stunts.
Skolopad made headlines earlier this year when during a social media debate about Euphonik and Bonang’s relationship, she offered to help Euphonik get over his ex.
Zodwa claimed that this was a stunt by Skolopad and lambasted her for it.
