Babes Wodumo Proves Mzansi Wrong, Set To Perform In Kenya
Babes Wodumo is on a mission to shut the mouths of those who believe her career has taken a downfall.
The Wololo hitmaker, whose real name is Bongekile Simelane, will perform in Nairobi, Kenya, on October 10th.
The gqom queen will perform at Captain’s Terrace Restaurant, according to her sister and manager Nondumiso Simelane.
She said it hurt that Babes Wodumo was getting hate from people who were comparing her to other artists who do international gigs. She said with this Kenya gig, she hoped the music fans who believe she’s down and out will change their perceptions.
“Babes does not limit herself. Clearly those who think she targets only local don’t know her. She’s going to Kenya and that’s good because she is going to prove them wrong,” said Nondumiso.
Babes Wodumo will perform alongside DJ IV, Moseh The Drummer, Themm, Kori-K, and DJ Panik-Ke, according to Captain’s Terrace Restaurant’s Instagram account.
Nondumiso said: “Babes needs to work to provide for her son. And she has a very supportive family. So working, which includes travelling, does not affect anyone including the baby. She’s a caring and loving mother,” said Nondumiso.
When Babes Wodumo returned to the studio while her kid, Spontshi (Sponge), was less than three months old, she was critized.
