"How does Babes Wodumo not have 1 award after Wololo guys ? Not 1 award ? Not even best new comer ? This is just utter rubbish."
Cassper Nyovest is Team Babes after the Wololo star lashed out at the South African Music Awards in an angry video rant.
He joined the likes of Black Coffee who supported her claim that people "bought" their awards.
Babes who threatened to boycott the SAMAs if she didn't win at least one of the four categories she was nominated – walked away empty handed.
Cassper Nyovest, who has always showed support for Babes, he compared her to the the legendary Lebo Mathosa.
But some of the Twitterati felt that Babes had a sense of "entitlement". Some even got personal, suggesting that she would finally get an award if she could help her fiance Mampintsha to lose weight.
In a series of tweets the Mama I made It star came to Babes defence:
"Awards r great&all but they don't make you a greater artist. You're an amazing talent and we love you!!! Keep killing sh**!!!"( sic)
I cav y'all Tsibinkies talking but all I'm saying is there's no one for Babes Wodumo!!! She's the furthest!!! I'm talking superstar level!!
Hope Babes takes this & uses everything she feeling as motivation to push harder. I remember my team went through this. Stronger now 🙏🏾
More support came through for Babes from DJ Black Coffee, Robert Marawa.
South African Artist invest in yourself.your Music,your Performance and your Relationship with your Fans.....that's all you need.
But naysayers wasted no time in hitting hard on Babes.
@CassperNyovest 1. She felt entitled to awards
2. She did not campaign
3. She let the fame get to her head forgetting that the masses matter
@CassperNyovest Are you saying Amanda black didn't deserve Best New Comer even with her platinum album??
Sorry Babes Wodumo, your sense of entitlement is exactly the problem with our country. Work for the Work not the praise! stop being a brat!
#SAMA23 Dear Babes Wodumo:
Since u're losing awards, maybe its time to help Mampintsha LOSE weight too.
From Wololo to Dololo. sorry Babes Wodumo and boyfriend #SAMA23
Babes Wodumo and Mpintsho are probably suffering from itis due to over indulging on some humble pie over the weekend! pic.twitter.com/2DHZSzHbGu
