Gqom is a rough-edged, minimal form of house music that emerged early in the 2010s from Wodumo's South African home city of Durban. She told Billboard

"I was so surprised," she said. "I'm a girl from Africa. My genre is gqom music. They call me gqom queen. I was too shocked. Kendrick Lamar and me? Hip-hop and gqom?! What? I'm so happy. It's such a privilege and an honor."
