In both these albums she scooped quite a number of awards from different award ceremonies. She performed in a whole lot of places across the world.

According to South African author Zine Magube ”Lebo was a role model for many young South African women, appearing at first glance to simply be reinforcing stereotypes about the wanton nature of Black female sexuality. Some critics have argued however that Boom Shaka’s female members have used ‘the skimpy clothes, the gyrating hips, and simulated sex onstage to promote a variety of apposite concerns.This strong pro-feminist attitude combined with her often shocking onstage sexuality earned her the nickname “The New Madonna of the Townships”.
