Zodwa Wabantu has hit back at claims that she preys on younger men, telling TshisaLIVE that she will continue to date them and anyone who has a problem should try open a case against her. The star nearly collapsed the internet on Tuesday when a screenshot of her “shooting her shot” with Gomora actor Ntobeko Sishi went viral.
The 21-year actor posted a snap of himself on Instagram, to which Zodwa responded: “Eishh skhokho angisakhoni. Please inbox me,” with winking faces and heart emojis.
Her comment split opinions on social media, with some labelling her a “predator” and calling for her to “leave our children alone”.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE, Zodwa said that she was not fazed by the criticism and hinted at already being in a relationship with Ntobeko. “I have him. He is mine already. I don’t take shots. I have him already.”
The star has dated younger men, or Ben 10s, in the past and said she had a type.
“I like them young. I work too hard and have money, I am having fun,” she said.
She said that her critics should leave her alone, or go to the police if they have a problem with her.
“They must leave me alone. They say that I am a paedophile or predator, but if they feel that way they must go open a case. I don’t stress about my life or what people say about me.”
Responding to the criticism on Instagram, Zodwa wrote: “They (young men) go for me and if I like them I say yes.”
