Babes wodumo has been out of the spotlight for a while. In an Interview with Drum she has reveled that she has been quiet busy working on new projects during the level 3 lockdown.
" I've also started working out and taking care of my body and eating right", the gqom singer who wants to make a memorable return said.
"Its not really a come back because I have always been busy making music"
"I love myself and the way i am and I have no regrets about the decisions I have made""But i have learnt to choose the people I have around me. Choose your team and friends wisely".
This time around she wants to shut out all the negativity she gets from people and put first her music and family.
"People will always talk about me, You know how they are. I cant stop them, All i can do is focus on my album, which is due for release in the third week of July."
Recently she made headlines after an IG interview with Tha who later claimed Babes took cocaine in his presence.
" Babes will never change" he said.
Tha has apologized for the incident saying it as never his intentio to cause any damage to her brand.
Babes however is putting her foot down and decided to sue Tha over the claims.
Wodumo’s lawyer, Ayanda Mngadi of Ayanda Shazi & Associates, confirmed the lawsuit: “Yes, I can confirm that we have received instructions from our client to take action. It is a civil case of defamation,” said Mngadi.
During the interview Babes cried and opened up about how fans often judged her for drinking alcohol and from her actions, not knowing or understanding her struggles.
" People say i drink too much. but they don't understand my hardships she told Tha. "I was young when i started.My parents did not have anything and i had to build them a home," she said crying.
Babes comes from a family of faith but her father Reverend Welcome Simelane does not wish to interfere in her business.
"I do get tired sometimes of hearing stories bout my daughter, but she is my child and i will always protect her and put her needs first," he says.
Reverend Welcome worries about his children but he lives his life through prayer.
"I leave all my troubles to God he adds. " Babes in an adult and she can make decisions."
"She's been making some adult decisions lately.
While it's been hard for many musicians to make much profit from events due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, Babes says she has been doing well.
" I have learnt to save money for rainy days."
