The people of Newcastle, KZN are not impressed with Babes Wodumo at the moment.
The Wololo hit-maker who was scheduled to perform at the Scrapyard Lounge based in Newcastle, KZN was a no show after attendees of the event waited hours on end to witness the entertainer perform.
Facebook was flooded with comments from dissapointed fans who were not impressed with Babes work ethic.
According to Scrapyard Lounge management, Babes Wodumo was paid in full to perform at the event and all arrangements for her performance were in order.
An hour before the artist was set to perform, Scrapyard management attempted to call her management to find out there whereabouts but unfortunately could not reach her team as phone calls were left unanswered or went straight to voicemail.
ZAlebs managed to catch up with the owner of Scrapyard Lounge, Mr Lepulane Mathaila who explained that Babes Wodumo was scheduled to perform at the event for the Women's Month celebrations.
"We paid her in full, we organized their accommodation including for her crew also. The only thing they've done, which is very painful and unprofessional is that they went to their Instagram page and removed the Scrapyard flyer and then issued a statement on their Instagram page to apologize to Scrapyard's sponsors, management and Newcastle Patrons, but no personal contact was made to Scrapyard's management or getting someone to phone us at least." Said Mr Mathaila.
Babes Wodumo did indeed post an apology on her Instagram page with some fans accepting the apology whilst others still unimpressed with going M.I.A
Maybe a truce performance in Newcastle should suffice?
The people of Newcastle in general and the patrons of Scrapyard in particular, supporters of West Ink artist Babes Wodumo, the event organisers and management of Scrapyard, sponsors and service providers....we would like to extend our most profound and sincere apologies on Babes Wodumo's failure to showup in last night's show. unforeseen logistical difficulties saw all the artist's efforts to make it to the show defeated. the situation was beyond our humam ability and we beg for your understanding and forgiveness in not honoring the event and we will make sure that a similar situation does not happen in the future. we regret all the dissapointment and inconveniences caused by the none appearance of our artist. we would also like to assure our fans and all parties involved that we value and respect their support and business and we will honor future invitations.
