Buyel'Ekhaya Music Festival puts Babes Wodumo on blast!

Babes Wodumo

Uh oh, seems like event organizers are not too happy with Babes Wodumo.

Babes Wodumo was probably one of the most popular artists in Mzansi in 2016. The singer won many people over with her hit track Wololo, and was in demand as a result of the success of the song. 

However, it looks like she can't keep up with the demand. 

The artist recently missed a gig in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, because of previous gigs, which led to her and Big Nuz missing their fight from East London. She explained on Instagram: "We are trying to organise another date to come and perform in Zimbabwe..." 

But this is not the first time Babes had drama with a gig. Buyel'ekhaya Music Festival organisers have put the singer on blast after she took to Instagram to accuse one of the founders of the event, Nomahlubi Mazwa of swearing at her and also threatening her. 


Ay abantu futhi ungeke umphindisele amazwakhe because ungango mah 😒😒😒😒

However, the organisers of the music festival have released a statement sharing their side of the story. They revealed that she was paid R75 000 (75% of her fee) in October and that flights and accommodation were booked for her. She apparently missed her flight and had to make her way to East London in DJ Black Coffee's charted flight. 

She also allegedly refused to perform when she got to the venue and made demands.
