SHE has been pushing the envelope as Zimbabwe’s most successful adult entertainer – and now Beverly ‘Bev’ Sibanda is demonstrating the bravery that makes her tick in a new video posted online.
The video, titled ‘Bev Jail House: This is My Story’ and posted on YouTube, pokes fun at the police over her arrest in September.
After being questioned overnight over her raunchy nightclub dance routines before being released without charge, the pole dancer revealed how randy night cops begged her to dance for them in her holding cell.
The professional video, complete with actors playing police officers, has a strong hint of sponsorship by Savanna Tobacco, the cigarette maker through their Pacific brand.
In the dramatised reconstruction of her lock-up, Prisoner 7041 is led to a tidy-looking “cell” dressed in yellow overalls.
She soon drops the overalls to the floor to reveal a skimpy red outfit before treating the officers to a free show to the sound of Elvis Presley's Jailhouse Rock.
The video shows Bev as the shrewd self-publicist who has managed to bring pole dancing into mainstream discourse with massive coverage of her events in local newspapers.
Recently, she replaced her entire backing dancers known as the Sexy Angels, telling the Herald: “With the new dancers, I think we will be in POLE position for the next decade.”
