Warning ... Bev on stage

THE Censorship Board has warned pole dancers against flouting the provisions of their certificates of performance.

Speaking on the sidelines of a media launch of raunchy dancer Beverly “Bev” Sibanda’s debut album at Private Lounge on Wednesday, secretary to the Censorship Board Isaac Chiranganyika said the dancers risked being arrested should they go against the set codes of their acts.

“We want to warn the dancers against breaching the prescribed codes for their performances,” he said.

“If they go against the codes, they will be arrested and the law must take its course. Sometimes we will not be present at their shows, but the police monitor their acts.

“For instance, there is a dress code. They have outfits they use on stage that must be removed as soon as they get off the stage, but some of them end up mingling with the public in those outfits (which is not allowed).”

Chiranganyika said all dancers had adequate information about the performance code.

“The dancers know what they are supposed to do. In the case of Bev and her group, I went to them with some members of the board and they were shows that they are supposed to do. So, if they dance outside the lines, they risk being arrested.”

Bev and fellow pole dancer Zoey Sifelani were last year arrested on allegations of public indecency after their semi-nude pictures were published in a local tabloid.

They were released without charge after spending a night in police cells. As if in reference to this incident, Bev declares on a track on her new album that she would dance without any fear.

The six-track album, that is titled Tapinda, carries tracks like Tshayi’ngoma (featuring Freddy Gwala), Best Mama, Ndoita Sei Ndakadiwa and
Vemakuhwa.

The public launch of the album takes place tonight at City Sports Bar Gardens.
 
Bev is expected to perform all songs from the album in addition to her routine pole dances.
 
Gwala is also billed to perform at the launch, while Peter Moyo would be guest artiste.
 
Speaking about the album at the media launch, Bev said people were yet to see the best of her.

“I am using my energy to do the best and entertain people. We want to get to the next stage which is bigger. I am looking forward to big things in my career,” Bev said.

She said she could not rate herself musically at the moment, but bragged she was better than the likes of Sandra Ndebele and Slizer when it came to dancing.
