Before answering Tha’s questions, Babes admitted that she was a bit drunk. 

She said she was afraid she would say something that would make her trend. 

At some point during the interview, Tha Simelane broke down in tears. He claimed Babes had taken cocaine. 

“Babes, she won’t change… I love her to bits, but she won’t change,” he can be heard saying. 

Social media users were shocked by the allegation. 

 “Did Babes Wodumo just take cocaine in a live Instagram Video? What an emotional video and fans had to ask for it to be ended.”

But many Twitter users who watched the clip said they did not see the star taking drugs at any point during the chat

“I watched this video till the end and to be honest I didn’t see Babes taking cocaine. She was just wiping her tears…but the guy wanted to shine.”

One Twitter user accused Tha Simelane of trying to trend.

“I honestly thought something was wrong with me, I honestly did not see her take anything drug related, he’s actually trying to trend ngoBabes unnecessarily mxm.”

One Twitter user slammed Tha Simelane for being a fake friend.

Tha Simelane replied that he considered Babes a sister: “She’s my sister nje not Friend.”


Babes has not commented on the allegations.
