Zodwa recently spoke to Daily Sun about why she decided to make the results public.
“I’m always talking about s.e.x and how much I love it. It recently dawned on me that I must not only talk about it, but I should also teach people about safe s.e.x and taking care of their health,” she said.
“There’s nothing taboo about sharing my status and making it public knowledge.
I’m a very open person. If I’m comfortable about something, I speak about it,” she said.
“Although the tests don’t state clearly whether I’m negative or positive, I’m glad people didn’t call me names after seeing the results,” she said.
“There’s a stigma that I’m a loose person. When I saw messages of love and not hate, I realized people are now starting to understand who Zodwa is.”
“I was comfortable. They made me understand what I was about to do. If someone wants to get tested but they feel scared, they can message me on Instagram and I will chat to them,” she said.
When asked if she was positive, Zodwa said people would have to wait for her TV show to find out.
