Local musician and dancer Skolopad says that she will no longer be showing off her butt tattoo.

The local entertainer - who first caught our attention earlier this year at the Metro FM wearing a revealing yellow dress - debuted a more toned down look at the Durban July on Saturday.

Skolopad first arrived at the horse racing event wearing a tradition outfit inspired by Sotho culture, she later changed into a more glamorous dress. The singer refers to the transformation as the "rebirth of Skolopad."
