Twitter mocks ‘Dololo’ Babes Wodumo for her ‘tantrum’

The Wololo singer had called out Sama organisers for not giving her a single award despite her hard work.

History has a funny way of repeating itself. Earlier this year, Babes Wodumo walked away empty-handed at the Metro FM Music Awards. Prior to the SA Music Awards (Samas), Babes promised that she would boycott the awards if she didn’t win anything – and then she didn’t.

Even though Babes ended the awards with a vibrant and explosive performance, she still took to social media to bash the Samas for not recognising her music and hard work.

She posted a video of herself saying she could not believe she didn’t win any awards for her hit single ‘Wololo’, which trended for most of last year. She went on to allege that record labels, as well as artists, “buy” awards they don’t deserve.


Riky Rick and Cassper Nyovest sent the singer messages of encouragement on Twitter, though Tweeps didn’t waste any time poking fun at Babes for not winning any awards, and  she has been trending on Twitter ever since.
