The singer of the runaway hit Wololo appears to be going off the rails trying to digest her new-found
received dololo in awards.
After the Samas, Babes and Mampintsa took to social media expressing their anger and frustration, claiming that some record labels “bought” the awards and that they were jealous of Babes’ success. Really, guys?
While their frustrations are understandable, the social media rant was unnecessary and unprofessional. It was bad for her reputation.
Although they’ve since apologised, the perception of sour grapes will always be stuck with the fans – who created the hashtag #BabesWodumoChallenge, which trended as people poured scorn on her wounded ego.
Some unsolicited advice for you, Babes: You don’t need to win awards to be a great or a successful artist. Ask the queen of kwaito, Mshoza. She had a hit, Kortes, but she has never won an award.
Musician Mgarimbe once had a hit, Sister Bethina, but he has never won an award. Have you seen them make a big deal out of this?
Look at the talented singer Vusi Nova. He only got his first award after 10 years in the music business. Kwesta bagged six awards after he produced hit after hit. Hope you’re taking notes.
Focus on producing good music and your time will come.
Don’t compare yourself to others, because you’re a unique and talented soul in your own right. At least you know that if music doesn’t work for you, you can still go back to what you do best – being a vixen girl.
All the best on your BET nomination.
