Babes Wodumo has she ridiculed Lady Zamar in a video that has gone viral?
The Wololo hitmaker came under fire after footage allegedly showed her mocking Lady Zamar’s appearance.
Babes is not seen in the video, but Twitter users claimed it was her in the background.
The voice mocks Lady Zamar about her acne, while zooming in on her face in the recording.
The footage was recorded during an episode of Idols SA.
Lady Zamar appeared in a July episode of the singing competition as a guest judge during the Johannesburg auditions.
Not only did the woman in the video make fun of her acne but she also called the singer a “sfebe”, which is the Zulu word for b***h.
Babes Wodumo was trending on Twitter on Wednesday with many users slamming the video.
“Babes Wodumo is out there making fun of Lady Zamar proving that “A woman’s greatest enemy is a woman,” one tweep wrote.
Another user was appalled that Lady Zamar’s looks were being criticised.
“Babes is busy making fun of Lady Zamar’s acne, what a cruel thing to do because no one asks for bad skin
Some questioned who posted the video in the first place, saying Babes needs to watch the company she keeps, or her career will soon be over.
“The biggest problem with her = her so called friends. Pity she doesn’t realise that #BabesWodumo,” one tweep wrote.
Another added: “Babes Wodumo needs a PR manager. Preferably one that isn’t her boyfriend, friend or relative.”
YouTube sensation Lasizwe also weighed-in on the drama
“I personally think Babes needs to give Lady Zamar a call and sincerely apologize #BabesWodumo,” he tweeted.

But Babes has denied the woman in the video is her
She says her account was hacked.
“I woke up to calls telling me I was trending on Twitter and had no idea about the video. This person who hacked my account is asking for money. It was not me,” babes told TshisaLIVE.
Babes also shared a video on her Instagram page to tell her followers that someone was using her Twitter account.
