WATCH | Here’s the ‘English bundles depleted’ video that made Babes Wodumo trend
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.

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.
