Cape Town - Yes, Wololo hitmaker - Babes Wodumo - charges up to R100 000 for a gig.

Speaking to The Juice, West Ink Records confirmed that Babes Wodumo charges up to R100 000 for a performance. "During the festive season however, it does differ with different events meaning that sometimes she charges less or a bit more than that."

The singer's performance fee came under scrutiny after Babes delivered a lacklustre performance at the Buyel'Ekhaya Music Festival in East London on 18 December. The event organisers confirmed that they paid the artists a (75%) R75 000 deposit.
