Gqom singer, Babes Wodumo has spoken out about her journey into the entertainment industry and her “strength” as she strives to live up to legends she’s been compared to; but also expressed that it hasn’t all been easy.
The Wololo hit-maker has dominated the headlines for everything but her music and talents of late. Babes took to Instagram to remind her followers that she has been dubbed a “national treasure” and been compared to the legendary Brenda Fassie and Lebo Mathosa.
Babes explained that she’s been compared to the late greats, and although she doubted it at first, she’s now wondering if there’s more to it.
She wrote: “When most people called me the next Lebo Mathosa or Brenda Fassie ngavele ngabona bedlala ngami but these days I sit and wonder, Father are you sure?” she asked.

Babes also mentioned how much she wished she could ask Lebo or Brenda for advice on how to make it to the legendary status they got to, because she felt only God knows this moment.
“Sometimes I wish they both were alive because I wanna ask them… How did you do it? How did you get over it? Unkulunkulu owaziyo… Weeeeeee Jesu Wami namanie ngisamangele ngamandla onginike wona,” she added.
Meanwhile, a week ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Gqom singer, Babes Wodumo, failed to appear in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court this morning, Tuesday, 11 June for her assault case against Mampintsha.
Babes Wodumo, who is the complainant in the case, was expected to present herself before court after the pair was referred to Families SA (Famsa) for mediation during Mampintsha’s last court appearance.
According to TshisaLive, state prosecutor, Ndoda January, told the court that Bongekile Simelane (popularly known as Babes Wodumo), was ill, but did not indicate what was wrong with her.
Mampintsha and his lawyer, Pat Magwaza, addressed the media outside the court. Magwaza spoke about the mediation sessions, saying the court case was postponed to 9 July pending more mediation sessions.
