Gqom queen Babes Wodumo has revealed the ordeal she has faced in the hands of public relations companies and why she has found it tough to work with them.

“There was always one underlying problem. Most of the PR companies that I have tried to work with wanted to change me. They wanted me to put in heels and for me to be someone I am not. So I would get fed up and told them no‚ if you can’t work with me as I am then leave me alone,” she told TshisaLive in a new interview

Babes Wodumo has a “rachet” brand akin to Cardi B going for her, and she doesn’t want to change that. She revealed being something else is not comfortable for her.

“I would tell them over and over again that the person you are trying to create is not who I am. This one time‚ I went onto TV looking horrible with ill-fitting clothes and people asked me what was going on. They were shocked because they could see I wasn’t even comfortable and it was all their fault‚”

“This other company even went a step further‚ telling me how to sit‚ how to talk‚ how to pose and to minimise my hand gestures. They wanted to turn me into a slay queen!

“There were also times where money went missing or just didn’t add up… I would ask the people that asked me to perform for payment and be told the management already accepted the money but I wouldn’t be notified.”

Babes Wodumo recently released a song alongside Major Lazer.
