Gqom singer and dancer Babes Wodumo has left the internet in a vexed mess after taking a dig at women who have children outside marriage.
In a scathing rant in a Facebook Live video from earlier this week, Babes told those tuning in that she doesn’t want to be compared to women who have children and aren’t married to their baby’s fathers.
“You see this thing of crying about your baby daddy who left you, don’t do that with me. I got married then I had a child so don’t compare yourselves with me. Do not compare your baby daddies with me. This has nothing to do with me.”
The Wololo hitmaker also questioned why people give birth at such a young age.
“Your baby daddy made you pregnant then left you with the baby, I wonder why you gave birth at a very young age. So I don’t want nothing to do with that,” she said.

When Twitter users got hold of the video they flooded the TL, sharing their verdicts on Babes. This resulted in Babes landing and staying on the Twitter trends list for hours.
TshisaLIVE reached out to Babes and her management for comment with regards to the backlash she received. However, they had not responded by the time this article was published.
On Twitter, many people felt that her comments were uncalled for, while others were there for the laughs.
Absolutely no one :

This B is crazy!. I knew a wedding ring would make her look down on unmarried women, her mentality as a girl is very wrong. SERIOUS https://t.co/FNPIMdGt8r
