Earlier this month, a video made the rounds on social media in which saw Babes Wodumo poked fun at Lady Zamar’s acne
The video shows the star watching an episode of Idols South Africa, on which Lady Zamar was a guest judge. Babes zooms in to Zamar’s skin while saying in isiZulu, “You’re busy laughing at this child on Idols and your face is like this?”
Soon after the video was shared on social media, Babes claimed that she had been hacked, but the Gqom sensation has finally confessed that she did indeed share the video
Speaking to Drum, Babes admitted that it was her in the video.
“[You know what]? I love Lady Zamar and she knows that. I was just upset by the comments she made to some of the contestants on Idols, but I understand I shouldn’t have sworn at her or made fun of her face. I used to have pimples too,” Babes said in a recent interview.
Babes’ manager and sister Nondumiso Simelane adds that while Babes does take responsibility, she reiterates that Babes was, in fact, hacked.
“She does acknowledge that she was the one mocking Lady Zamar and has apologised,” Nondumiso says. “She also maintains that she was hacked a few days ago but we fixed that and she is back to her old number. The matter is now in the past.”
