Mzansi’s current ‘it girl’ is set to go gospel come 2017, a Babes Wodumo gospel album will be released come next year.
This may come as a shock to her fans who know her for her rau_nchy dance moves and her outfits which leave little to the imagination.
To those who know her humble beginnings this comes as no shock as she used to actively participate in church including being a dancer. She is set to release a 10 track gospel album which will feature several gospel artists.
“This was her year of breakthrough. She feels she has so much to be thankful about. Sometimes words can not sum up everything, you need to do it in song” an insider in the entertainment industry said. “She’s also had a lot of negativity from people who are jealous and are constantly trying to put her down but she’s weathered the storm.
Babes is said to nervous about the whole project as she is afraid she might get harsh criticism from her fans and from staunch Christians who might think she is less holy .
Although the album tittle is not out yet, rumors are she might used her real name Bongekile Simelane for the album so as to separate the whole thing from her feisty Babes Wodumo image.
“It’s not going to be a typical gospel album. It will be fused with afro-pop, soul and a dash of house .It’s going to be great.” the source gave us a hint
We have no doubt, if anyone can pull anything off. it’s Babes Wodumo.
