It looks like gqom queen Babes Wodumo has been stung by the amapiano bug, as she’s planning to release an amapiano song in collaboration with Kamo Mphela, a notable figure in the genre.
Babes Wodumo revealed plans of her amapiano adventure in a recent sit-down with Mac G on his Podcast and Chills.
Although many say gqom dead, Babes Wodumo insists the genre is very much alive. The issue, according to her, is that unlike gqom artistes, amapiano artistes drop songs with commendable regularity, making the genre stay relevant.
Actually the interest in amapiano music has been smouldering for years. For instance, back in 2019, when many claimed the “Wololo” hitmaker was done as an artistes, she had laughed, stating “They say Babes Wodumo is done. Wait until we get a (sic) Amapiano hit.”
A year later, in 2020, before Fact Durban Rocks, she had been photographed dancing on the stage with Kamo Mphela in preparation for the event.
It is 2020 and the two are apparently cooking something amapiano. Will Babes be a big hit in amapiano as she is in gqom? Stay tuned.
