Mampintsha Mom – She appeared on Instagram Live in the late hours of Wednesday, and what hundreds of viewers did not expect was a full-scale outburst that included wild profanity directed at her mother-in-law, Zama Gumede. Wodumo is married to fellow Gqom singer Mampintsha, and the couple has two children.
Wodumo was overheard accusing Gumede of abandoning Mampintsha when he was just three days old, all in the heat of her blind wrath. Wodumo, despite the fact that she was intoxicated and aggressive, vowed that her kid ‘Sponge’ would never grow up to be like Gumede.
No one is surprised to learn that Wodumo, whose true name is Bongekile Simelane, and her mother-in-law do not get along. After Babes and Mampintsha established their son’s music career under the moniker ‘Sponge Wodumo’ in August 2021, the country was first introduced to the in-law feud in December 2021.
Upon further investigation, we discovered that this was the couple’s method of teasing Gumede for believing that Babes had faked her pregnancy by putting sponges around her abdomen.
The Daily Sun reported that Gumede expressed her displeasure with her son and daughter-in-law, and advised them against bringing curses into their marriage by publicly slamming each other.
In a recent interview, Babes Wodumo made it plain that a viral video of her swearing at her mother-in-law was nothing more than a publicity gimmick.
The ‘Uthando Lodumo’ actress made a statement claiming that she felt the need to draw attention to herself and her new EP owing to the late release of the album.
According to her, due to the late release of ‘The Crown EP,’ she felt compelled to draw attention to the moment in the song where she gives you a taste of part 2 of the Sponge Wodumo storey, the one that will be presented immediately before ‘Uthando Lodumo’ was broadcast on Showmax.
She also expressed her regrets to anyone who may have been offended by the violent language she used in the video.
“I really apologise to anyone I may have offended, and I had no choice but to do so around that time due to the strong language I used to protect my younger admirers.”
Babes went live on Instagram recently, and they had a lot to say about it. The controversial live session was intended at Zama Gumede, the mother of her husband’s father.
Mampintsha Maphumulo, a friend of Babes’, proposed to her earlier this year.
She is heard spilling the beans about her mother-in-law in the video, which went viral on social media and made the trending topics list.
He was just three days old when she alleges that Mampintsha’s mother abandoned him and his father. She is also heard cursing at Mampintsha’s mother, who is also present.
