Cape Town - Gqom artist Babes Wodumo has been on the top of the trends list on Twitter for all the wrong reasons.

On Wednesday evening a video was uploaded onto Babes Wodumo’s Twitter account. In the video, a clip of Lady Zamar as guest judge on Idols SA is playing on TV while someone – who’s voice sounds like Babes Wodumo’s -  is mocking Lady Zamar because of her acne and calls her unpleasant names while friends laugh in the background.

Following backlash over the video, a tweet came from Babes Wodumo’s official Twitter account that showed no remorse about what she said in the video.

“I said what I said and I don’t care if you guys hate me or not I’m proud. I meant what I said hence why the video is everywhere so that you guys can see !I can drop a song anytime you guys will still download it and book me as well so fo**” the tweet read.

A day later, Babes Wodumo took to her Instagram account and her boyfriend Mampintsha’s Twitter account to post a video about the incident.

She claimed that her Twitter was hacked, and that people should not listen to what was said in the video.

“I just wanted to say, just like I previously said, my 07999 number was hacked. This person hacked my Twitter. So, I’m not the one posting on Twitter, it’s not me. I don’t know what they’re saying but they’re sending stuff to me now on my Whatsapp saying ‘they’ll bring the heat or they’re swearing people’ I don’t know what’s going on guys but I’m trying to solve this.” She said.

“Please don’t listen to what they’re saying, I don’t know what they’re saying.” She continued.

See the video below:

Although Lady Zamar hasn’t officially responded to the video, her fans were quick to defend her and did not believe that Babes Wodumo was actually hacked.
