Babes Wodumo during the Saturday Loerie Awards Ceremony at the ICC on August 20, 2016 in Durban.
JOHANNESBURG - Kwaito artist, Babes Wodumo is claiming the SA Music Awards are rigged.
The Wololo hitmaker took to Twitter, after failing to win a SAMA in Sun City last night. The track has nearly 6 million views on YouTube.
And, Bongekile Simelane, who goes by Babes Wodumo, feels the song is deserving of a SAMA.
“You all saw what happened at the SAMAs, just the repeat of what happened at the Metros. It’s obvious that awards are bought," Simelane said.
Fellow kwaito star, Mapitsha rushed to her defence, saying the industry is undermining her. Her fans are also expressing their outrage on Twitter.
Earlier this year, the queen of Gqom music also warned she won’t attend any awards show if she didn’t win a Sama.
