Babes Wodumo’s sister ventures into music

Babes Wodumo’s sister, Nondumiso Simelane, has launched her singing career.

Nondumiso, whose stage name is Scoop released her first single Dali, featuring Mdu, last month.

The 30-year-old singer from Lamontville, south of Durban, has been featured in a few gqom songs.

But she’ll be pursuing Afro pop and Afro soul.

“Even though I’ve sung other genres before, I’ve always loved Afro pop, Afro soul and jazz.

“I enjoy listening to Gloria Bosman, Zama Jobe, Siphokazi, Kelly Khumalo, Zandi Khumalo and Naima Kay.

Scoop started singing professionally 10 years ago and has served as a backing vocalist for some of Mzansi’s biggest gospel stars.

“I’ve been singing from the age of two. I’ve always loved music, and I’ve always seen myself as a singer,” said Scoop
“When I was 20 I was a backing vocalist for gospel artists Thinah Zungu, Thulani ‘Ga’ Ndlela, Sgwili Zuma, Malusi Mbokazi and Nobathembu. That’s where I learnt more about music.”.

She was recently featured on Goldmax’s album Music Saved Me, on a song titled Linda.

She’ll also be on TNS’s upcoming album.

“I’ve been featured on Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha’s song Thula Wazi and Newlandz Finest’s Maduzane in the past,” she said.

“On both the songs, I was just doing them a favour, but the songs really did well, which shocked me. But it’s also what led me to pursue my solo career.

“Dali is also doing very well, which I hadn’t expected. People are enjoying it and it’s getting airplay on radio. “This is clearly going to be an exciting journey. I’m still in studio with Blaq Diamond, Sbahle and possibly Professor for more features.”

Asked if she’d release a song with Babes Wodumo, she said: “Everyone has been asking me this. They really want us to give them another song. We haven’t talked about it yet, but there has to be a song. We’ll work on it.”
