It's true! Visa issues stop Babes Wodumo from attending BET Awards

Wololo hitmaker Babes Wodumo's BET dream has come crashing down after visa issues have prevented the singer from attending the awards.
Officials at Viacom have confirmed to TshisaLIVE that, as it stands, Babes and her manager/boyfriend Mampintsha do not have US visas.
Reports in Sunday Tribute claimed the duo applied for their visa too late.
In a statement, the organisers of the BET Awards, Viacom International Media Networks Africa, said they had been notified about Babes not being able to get a visa and were trying to assist her.

"As Viacom International Media Networks Africa, we have assisted the 2017 BET Awards nominees in securing their travel requirements in a speedy manner. However it has been brought to our attention by the management of the nominee in question that she has not secured a visa. We are in contact with the nominee’s management and are working together to find a solution," the statement said.
Several reports claim that the pair are still trying to get an interview date with the US consulate, and are hoping to secure the needed documentation in time for the awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Babes' predicament has seen her trend on social media as fans gave their thoughts on the fiasco.
All eyes have been on the musician after she threatened to boycott local awards' shows after walking away empty handed at the SAMAs despite the popularity of her hit song,Wololo.
As the only woman nominated in the Best International Act: Africa category, Babes said the nod proved "you did not need to speak English fluently to produce good music."
It is unclear whether she will be issued with a visa in time to attend the ceremony.
