The head of Zimbabwe's Tourism Board Karikoga Kaseke has apologized to South African celebrity Zodwa Wabantu, who is set to headline the Harare International Carnival, after he said that she would only be invited if she wore underwear.
Zodwa has gained notoriety in the region for her preference for not wearing underwear.
Mr Kaseke said Zodwa, who is a dancer, would offend traditional leaders if she performed without her "panties".
He told Zimbabwe state TV that the celebrity was free to bring her act to the Harare Festival, especially since she was well received. In a reaction, Zodwa says she would not compromise her brand and would not be told how to live her life.
