Responding to the video, some tweeps appeared confused by her actions arguing that traditional healing is supposed to be sacred.
Below are some of the comments on Twitter.
Soo lost… So she is a sangoma whose a doctor and Shembe with a pint of gqom??

Exactly.. what is she doing? Traditional healing is supposed to be sacred and respected.. ke eng tsona tse
Smart ntobazana,she knows her shelve life is coming to an end now she preparing how to make moola after expirery date.
It worries me that in our African culture mental illness is most often mistaken as a calling and vice versa.
Sometime in March this year, Zodwa deleted all her posts on Instagram which led to speculation that the raunchy dancer was preparing for her rebirth as a sangoma.
The deletion of the posts came barely 24 hours after the star cryptically told her 2.1 million followers that many of them were going to miss her.
Early this month, Zodwa was under fire for allegedly missing a performance at a gig she had been paid for.
The allegations were shared by entertainment and celebrity blogger Musa Khawula on Twitter. Zodwa was reportedly paid R9,000 by the event organisers to throw a performance at Zodwana Pub And Grill.
The performance was scheduled to take place at Zodwana, located outside Hammanskraal, on the 16th of April 2022. Musa Khawula attached the bank statement showing the transaction made to Zodwa WaBantu’s bank account.
