A lot of people predicted that Wololo hitmaker Babes Wodumo will not survive the heat in the entertainment industry for a long time.
However, Babes has gone on to disappoint her haters who predicated her eminent downfall by reaching a new remarkable milestone in her career.
Why The Fuss?
It only took Babes a bit over three months to reach an amazing 2.3 million YouTube views on the music video of her hit track Wololo. Thus, she made history as the first artist to do so in the local music industry. Now, that’s something to be proud of.
Overly excited about the achievement, Babes said that she is grateful for the support from her fans. She also promised not to disappoint her fans who are expecting her album this month.
“I’m grateful for the overwhelming support. Can’t wait to drop the album in October, because people are waiting for it and I can’t wait to see all my supporters at my shows,” she said excitedly.
In addition, Babes’s manager, Victor Dlokolo added;
“We are celebrating. It’s a milestone she achieved in such a short space of time. It shows how people are interested in the brand. After a long time, South Africans have an authentically local talent they can celebrate.”
Though fans welcomed her hit song Wololo with open arms, the case with her second single Mercedes was slightly different. Babes was severely criticised for making reference to a ‘killer drug’ being used in KZN in her latest single.
Consequently, her team has come out to refute all accusations that her recent song has any connection to the drug. Apparently, the song happened to share the same name with the drug.
“There is not a single lyric about alcohol and drugs in her single Mercedes. A Mercedes Benz is Babes’ dream car which she wants to buy for her father and this is what she refers to in the song‚” Victor explained.
Meanwhile, following hot on the heels of Wololo hitmaker Babes Wodumo on YouTube are Joyous Celebration and Nathi, who boast 1.9 million and 1.4 million YouTube views for Halleluya Nkateko and Nomvula respectively.
