"Babes Wodumo"


  1. Her real name is Bongekile Simelane
  1. Babes `wodumo ‘s song, Wololo, which features Big Nuz’s Mampintsha, is the fourth most played local song on South African radio.
  2. She is signed to Mampintsha’s West Ink label, and is also severely devoted to it and its parent company, DJ Tira’s Afrotainment.
  3. Her stage name means “the famous Babes,” and she says when she was born, there was a group called The Babes and she had eyes like one of its members, which her father always referred to and said “Lo uw ’Babes’ (this one is Babes).”  The ‘Wodumo’ came because she used to do dancing, acting, soccer, athletics, and was good at them all and became famous for them.
  4. She grew up in Lamontville with her grandmother and in a flat in Durban’s CBD with her parents
  5. She started the West Ink Dance Academy that gets kids off the streets and onto the stage with her.
  6. She has said Wololo is about telling people not to let fun get them so intoxicated that they don’t know where or how they ended up sleeping where they slept.
  7. She feels that she is the first woman to put gqom (a dance sub-genre from Durban) into the music industry, and is a self-proclaimed gqom star.
