Gqom Queen, Babes Wodumo recently set social media channels alight as she posted a video of herself singing along to a Gospel song. Many fans were left in a state of disbelief with her amazing vocal abilities.
Truth be told, even with several hit songs to her credit, Babes is one who mostly just talk in her songs. This way, when she posted a video that proves she might sound better with singing, the reaction mill just went into overdrive.
While many commended the vocal prowess of Babes Wodumo whose real name is Bongekile Simelane, others simply found it as another opportunity to make fun of the situation since trolling her never seems to get old.
This way, they found it easier to attack her command of the English as they analysed the grammar of the song. They asked if the correct line was supposed to be “he keeps on blessing me” or “he keeps on bless me,” which Babes kept on repeating.
Plus, with the “Wololo“ hitmkaing having recently featured on the track “Redemption,” off the “Black Panther” Album inspired by the Black Panther movie, some Tweeps queried why she didn’t tell the team about her singing abilities; believing she might have lost a great opportunity to show the world she can indeed sing.
With all the buzz this episode has created, perhaps we might get to hear Babes Wodumo sing on her next song… Many fans still believe it might be West Inc Boss and rumoured boyfriend, Mampintsha, who is holding her back from exploring this strength and side of her craft.
