“Wena relax, we know you wanna gain followers but there is no need to be on top of everything that trends.”

“100% true. Even though she could’ve reached a level higher or done better at some things, but you’re right she’s done great. Nobody can take that away from her, comparing her it’s being unfair disrespectful to her and unfair to the young girl coming up.”

Babes Wodumo slams Kamo Mphela comparison, but peeps want to know where her teeth are

Babes Wodumo released a short and rather chaotic video addressing all the hate she’s been getting and the Kamo Mphela comparisons. Flanked by her close friends, Babes Wodumo made it clear that she already got her fame and awards to match.

However, what really drew attention to the clip was the fact that Babes Wodumo looked like she did not have any front teeth. Teeth loss has been noted as a side effect of pregnancy in some women, and a few social media users attributed Babes’ front gaps to that.

Unfortunately, the glaring lack of molars distracted many from Babes’ message as they took to the comments section to share their thoughts.
