Yoh! Sometimes English can get the best of us, just ask Babes Wodumo.
Babes found herself on the Twitter trends list at the weekend after a video of a woman, believed to be the singer, speaking English to a police officer went viral.
In the young video, the woman can be seen speaking to the officer through a gate.
With heightened emotions and frustration, she tried to explain to the officer that she was working, before admitting that English had failed her.

Many enjoyed a laugh or two at the video, while others defended her against mean comments.

Just weeks ago, Mampintsha and Babes released a song about the Covid-19 pandemic that continues to wreak havoc across the world.
The couple took their jokes, thoughts and feelings about the virus and turned it into a gqom song that many seem to be loving on these social media streets.
