Controversial pole dancer Nolleen “Zoey” Sifelani has claimed to be the pioneer of raunchy and well-choreographed pole dance moves in the country.
“I was probably one of the first people who started pole dancing in the country although I started off as a dancer for Roki in 2007,” she said.
“I, however, tried my luck in South Africa although I came back to Zimbabwe after I failed to make a mark in that country’s showbiz industry,” she said.
“After settling in Zimbabwe, I managed to successfully get a licence for pole dancing. And yes I was the first person to get such a licence. People were probably shocked at the aspect of pole dancing in Zimbabwe as it was new,” she said.
“My parents and family have been supportive of my career as a pole dancer. They are quite old, and to be honest they think that it resembles traditional dances that are done by groups such as IYASA. This has indeed made them comfortable with my career,” she said.
