1. Babes Wodumo

Babes Wodumo is known for her unique way of expressing herself in English. She used to grab attention with her charmingly imperfect English, but it’s important to remember that fluency in a language doesn’t determine someone’s intelligence or education.


Wodumo made it quite clear that English is not her first language and she didn’t attend those prestigious private schools. As a proud Zulu speaker, she doesn’t feel obligated to adhere to anyone’s standards of proper English. Her fans rallied behind her, defending her right to speak English however she pleases and urging others to simply leave her be.
