Fans were not impressed with Mampintsha being featured on 13 songs, and they felt like he was trying to steal Babes Wodumo's shine, commenting on that Babes says, "I believe we make music with whoever we like to work with during that specific time."

The album has received mixed reactions from fans as some have given it a stamp of approval but some fans were not impressed by it. Babes says she still loves them regardless of the criticism.

"We are family and family do go through bad and good days. I love my fellow South Africans and I wouldn't trade them for anything," she explains.

The BET nominee artist has refuted claims that this album is her comeback, as  fans are adamant that she is back to reclaim her spot with it.

"It's really funny cause I never left, I was around and busy performing. I'm a Queen for goodness sake, I've been booked every weekend until I got a space to record due to the Lockdown," she says.

Babes recently announced that she has bounced back to Instagram, after a year-long social media hiatus due to her account being hacked. The hacker was causing a stir on social media and she says they have learnt their lesson as a team .

"We've learnt our lesson and we are more vigilant now." Asked if she knows the hacker she says she cannot name and shame now.

The singer recently trended on social media after she went live on Instagram with Durban-based entertainer Tha Simelane who accused her of allegedly taking cocaine. Babes says she has decided  to sue her for defamation of character she says she cant reveal much about what is happening with the case now.

"Tha's case is still being handled by the SAPS which I can't really say anything much about it," she says.

The entertainer has also rubbished reports that she has a bun baking in her sexy oven. This follows after her look at the Fact Durban Rocks virtual event set tongues wagging.

Babes donned a jacket which was tenting in the front prompting fans to speculate that she is pregnant. "I'm a Queen.., people will always talk whenever I'm doing something."

As the lockdown restrictions have been eased artists have been bagging more gigs and Babes says she is very excited "I can't wait to see the people's reactions when I get to perform my new hit songs from my latest album. It's more like getting a new ride and you've been waiting for too long to get into the road and feel it," she says.
