Reality TV star Zodwa Wabantu has apologised for her controversial comments she made about gay people on her Moja Love show, Zodwa Wabantu Uncensored. The nude dancer, whose real name is Zodwa Rebecca Libram, apologized during an interview on Jozi FM on Wednesday afternoon.

But she insists her show won’t be canned, with Moja Love expected to release a media statement on Thursday.

Zodwa’s controversial comments about gay people, which were described as homophobic in some quarters, led to calls for the TV channel Moja Love to scrap her reality show.

A petition was setup amid social media backlash.

“Gay people are naughty… They are convinced that they have vaginas when they actually have a pen!s,” she said on her TV show.


On Wednesday, Zodwa told Jozi FM that her comments had been misconstrued, and said she was talking specifically about her gay friend.

“I am sorry (for) how it came out. This is how I talk with my friends,” she said during the radio interview.

Moja Love is also expected to release a statement on Thursday after calls for the show to be scrapped with lobbying under the #ZodwaCancelled hashtag calling for action.
