Gqom artist Babes Wodumo was set to perform in Leicester, UK, but claims she was unable to due to "a few hiccups". 

The 'Wololo' singer took to Instagram to explain why she didn't pitch for a gig in Leicester, UK, and initially said she missed the event due to her dealing with a few hiccups with the promotor and mourning the passing of her grandmother. 

In the apology post on Sunday, she said: "Our sincere apology to my UK fans for not pitching last night. The promoter and I had a few hiccups, and I also wasn't at all in a good space since I received sad news that my grandmother has passed on. I also apologise on behalf of Mkhukhwini BUT what I wanna guarantee my Dublin fans is that I'm performing tonight I'm ready to rock this place".

However, in a follow-up post on Monday, the gqom queen revealed that the promotor, Mkhukhwini, was messing her around for Dublin performance.

In the post, Babes revealed that she was only picked up at her B&B at 2am even though the show started at 9pm. Babes explained that she only discovered this when she arrived at the venue because Mkhukhwini didn't communicate any of the information to her or her team. 

She finished up her statement by warning other artists against Mkhukhwini and while she heard bad stories about him before, she couldn't believe they were true.
