Popular Durban musician and dancer, Babes Wodumo is the topic of debate as to who discovered her.

Real name Bongekile Simelane, Babes shot to fame with her single Wololo, featuring Mampintsha of Big Nuz. She is signed to Mampintsha’s West Ink label.

Nana Zondi, an alleged Durban tycoon has come out to put claim to Babes Wodumo, this after reports that DJ Tira is the one who discovered her, reported Sunday Sun.

“Babes Wodumo was discovered by me. Yes, me, in 2013, when I selected her to be in the Hawaii music video where she formed a friendship with Afro,” Zondi wrote to a magazine.

Asked to comment on the matter, DJ Tira said: “I can’t even comment on this issue because Babes is Mampintsha’s protege. Leave me out of this matter.”

Mampintsha is reported to have dropped calls when approached for comment.

“Tira likes taking credit for things he didn’t do. All I want to say is I discovered Babes Wodumo in 2013 after I made a call for public auditions, looking for dancers for a music video,” Zondi added.
