Bev's streak of bad luck

HARARE - Raunchy dancer Beverly ‘‘Bev’’ Sibanda is always a victim of sexual harassment as people are failing to come to terms with her dancing profession.

Last week a visibly drunk looking man who attended her Players Nite Club show in Harare left the fully-packed house shell-shocked after he fondled her breasts on stage.

In her self-defence the sexy dancer slapped the unidentified man on the cheek for taking advantage of her revealing stage attire.

Recently in Bulawayo, another unidentified man stripped in front of her.

As if this is not enough, her Gwanda show turned nasty as she was robbed while she was sleeping in her room.

“Three men pounced on me after the show while I was sleeping and got away with $300,” said Bev.

However she did not report the matter to the police.

Speaking to the Daily News on Sunday Bev said it was high time that people should understood the difference between dancing and prostituting.

“People understand the line between a commercial sex worker and a dancer,” she said.

The proud dancer is always a target of unsavoury remarks from the society which labelled her a “stripper” and a “stalker” who eyed public figures such as Sulumani Chimbetu and the Kwekwe-based Utakataka front man Peter Moyo among others in the hectic showbiz industry.

Currently the rumour mill is linking Bev to Denzel Burutsa who played the role of Jabu in the local soap Studio 263.

However, the two dismissed the allegations as fallacy.

Burutsa said this grapevine is not new in the showbiz.

“I heard a lot of people saying I am in love with Bev but actually I am not,” said Burutsa.

The Studio 263 lover-boy said Bev is not fit to be his wife.

“I think even my little child will assault me if I brought Bev in the home as a step-mother,” he said.

Her manager Harpers Mapimhidze urged promoters to put more security measures.

“People mistakenly take these ladies as prostitutes that is why they ill-treat them.

“It is very unfortunate that promoters are not employing tight security measures to protect the girls,” said Mapimhidze.
