Kwa Mam’Mkhize star Tha Simelane hosted an Instagram Live interview with various Gqom artists, including Babes Wodumo.
Babes Wodomo cut the interview short after becoming emotional while talking about the sacrifices she has made for her family and being a victim of cyber-bullying.
Babes’ interview started on a high note with excitement about working on a new album. She then confessed to having had a few drinks before the interview.
But things turned sour when Babes started speaking about how far she had come in her career and the negative criticism she receives every day from people who do not know her background.
“People say I drink too much, I’m always drunk. They don’t know me and what I have been through. I want to show people who I am and what makes me famous,” she told Tha.
“I was a child when I started in the industry. I didn’t know anything. I got money and learnt how to save and not drink every day.“People don’t know my situation. They think I love partying too much. I didn’t have a home. I had to start afresh. I had to close the curse my family had. My dad didn’t have a home, I had to a build a home,” she said crying.
Both Tha and Babes couldn’t hold their tears and Babes had to cut the call, leaving Tha to wrap up the show.
In the end, Tha shocked viewers when he alleged Babes had been taking cocaine while people were watching.“Babes won’t change. She took cocaine while I watch[ed], while people watch[ed]. I love you guys, bye,” he said.
