Babes Wodumo lost her USB stick with an unreleased single on it and she needs your help

Someone stole Babes Wodumo’s flash stick with her new, unreleased song of the summer

UPDATE 29/8: Call off the search party! The USB stick has been found! Where was it all along? Which good Samaritan found it and passed it on to Babes? No clue but we do have evidence that it’s safe in Babes’ hands.

Thanks to its recovery we now know that the song, officially titled, “Ghandaghanda,” will drop tomorrow via iTunes.

As things go on the interwebs, this whole thing has already turned into a challenge of which Babes Wodumo approves. Like this young dude who made an entire gqom freestyle about how she should just forget about finding the flash.

If you’re asking about cover art, it’s anybody’s guess. But there’s this fan version which we’ll work with for now.

And that’s that on that. Get your iPhones ready for tomorrow’s drop.


Original story 28/8:ย Ever worked on an assignment all night and ran to the library 20 minutes before submission only to realise that you lost your USB stick with all your work on it? How much luck did you have with your lecturer that day? Well, Babes Wodumo hopes you’ll be a little more kind to her.

In a video clip that appears to be filmed by the gqom queen herself, Babes reveals that her, as yet, unreleased single – which she calls “Gandaganda” in the clip – has been leaked.

‘Leaked,’ in 2017, usually means someone ripped an unmastered version of a track or album from a studio after a recording session. But in this case, turns out the unmastered “Gandaganda” track ended up on Babes Wodumo’s flash stick before ending up in a thief’s hands.

You can watch her tell the full story up top and make her plea that you all send her links you may find of it so her team can delete them. Turns out the flash is doing the rounds somewhere in South Beach, Durban. So if you’re around the area, hit a sister up.

Babes, if it’s any consolation, we ran a (quick) Google search and the first 5 pages throw up no results for “babes wodumo gandaganda.”

Of course, Twitter is having a field trip and you can gag at that below.

Well, what do you think?
