Mampintsha’s mom breathes fire. Even Mampintsha’s mother Zamanguni Gumede is not celebrating right now because more questions are being raised about Babes Wodumo and how she is grieving the loss of her late husband, Mampintsha.
Since the funeral of her late spouse, Mandla ‘Mampintsha’ Maphumulo, Gqom queen Babes Wodumo has consistently made headlines. Mampintsha was buried last Friday, and New Years Eve Babes Wodumo was spotted performing at the “Last Dance” party in Pietermaritzburg on New Years Eve.
Nevertheless, Babes Wodumo’s pastor and marriage counselor, Pastor Dube, gave her permission to return to the stage. Numerous people are undoubtedly not happy with the way she is grieving and paying her final respects to her Mampintsha.
Zamanguni Gumede, Mampintsha’s mother, blasted Babes Wodumo for disrespecting her son and not expressing adequate sorrow in her conversation with Zimoja Lezinto.
“One; no offence, I love Babes, she and I reunited and made peace at the funeral, but this is not how things are done” said Zamanguni Gumede
Even though they appeared to have laid to rest their ongoing drama at the funeral. Zamanguni Gumede did not mince words when she criticized Babes Wodumo for hijacking the customary mourning ritual.
“Firstly, she is not at home, she is gallivanting in the streets, drinking and partying. Two, she is not wearing traditional mourning clothes. The daughter of a pastor is not following the rules. She is doing things her own way” added Zamanguni Gumede
Nevertheless, Mampitsha’s mother does not adhere to traditional values herself. She disagrees with Babes Wodumo’s method of grieving, though. She is a singer and performer, which makes sense, but the speed at which events are developing worries Mampintsha’s mother as well as Mzansi as a whole.
“I am not a very traditional person myself, and I understand people heal differently and deal with grief in their own way, but this is not right. This is painful to watch. She is disrespecting my son in a way” said Zamanguni Gumede
The biggest worry for Babes Wodumo’s parents, who are devout believers, is that they are letting everything slip regarding how Babes Wodumo is acting.
“Why are they not saying anything? It has not even been a month. I wouldn’t be shocked If she were to start dating someone. After everything, I am very disappointed. I just want her and me to talk and for us to find a way forward.” ended Zamanguni Gumede
Babes Wodumo is currently under criticism for breaking Mampintsha’s phone password. The Wololo hitmaker has already started to post on Mampintsha’s Facebook page and has even revealed some of the alarming and incriminating details she discovered on Mampintsha’s phone.
“Uhm… sengiy’tholile ipin ka-baby. Thank you baby! [laughs] Ngoba shame indoda yami ingithande kwaze kwafika ekugcineni. Ngisabuka izindaba zenu ke [laughs] Oay jokes aside. So angeke ngibambele muntu igqubu ngiyazibukela nje izindaba. Hayibo akuyizintombi, akuyizintombi layikhaya. Hayi kuyanyiwa” sais Babes Wodumo
