Bev said initially women threw brickbats at her but attitudes towards her have changed. Previously, women were jealous of me, thinking that I was a home-wrecker but that has since changed because they now appreciate that I am an artiste.
“Recently, I have been attending women parties where besides dancing, the women also want me to teach them how to dance as well as perform in bed,” she said. The mother of one spends most of her time at home in Helensvale where she rents a one-bed roomed apartment.
“When I am not on stage I enjoy watching television, doing house chores and relaxing on the bed or on the couch as I sip on a glass or two of Amarula,” she said. The 21-year-old “queen of the dance floor”, who has popularised the sitting on the bottle dance stunt, where she gyrates on top of an empty beer bottle, is a mother of one, Kudzai, who is turning four this year.
“At first I used to live with my son but then due to my busy schedule I decided to take him to my sister’s place. I work throughout the week because of the demand from my fans. Hitting the gym is for those people who have time for that. I usually work out when I am on stage,” she said.
For Bev, dance comes naturally and she effortlessly moves her body like a snake, rhythmically to music, although she takes at least three to four bottles of Redbull per show. “The thing is what I do on stage is work and I get inspiration from fans because they demand to see different styles and they enjoy it. I believe I am not responsible for what they do afterwards, but a good number of them have opened up saying that they always think about their wives after attending my shows,” she explained.
“What I do is different from others and I am not a pole dancer. My dances come naturally and I always do the unimaginable because that’s what it takes to be a star,” she said. Bev said she is in a serious relationship she is looking forward to getting married in the next six or so years.
“I have a boyfriend and he appreciates my work so much. He is very much secure because he knows I am a professional dancer. However, there are men who make sexual advances at me but I turn them down.
“I don’t give fans my phone number and I rarely move around without my security personnel. After shows I usually sneak out through the back because I don’t like the attention I get from men,” she said.
Bev says she always does things to perfection. “Zvangu zvese zvinoonekwa nekunaka. I always give my best and as for the ideal man well, I can’t really say,” she said.
