Babes Wodumo and Zama Gumede, her mother-in-law, are now bitter rivals.
Mampintsha claimed the two had reconnected with a sweet photo on his Instagram page a few months ago, but the truce was short-lived as the heated fight escalated.
It was claimed last week that the West Ink CEO dumped his mother, Zama, and other family members after she complained to various media outlets about not being compensated for appearing on the couple’s reality program.
The singer commented on her WhatsApp status about why she dislikes Zama, according to Daily Sun, revealing the hostility between the Gqom queen and her mother-in-law.
“Ingakho umamezala ngingamthandi, ilamasimba awenzayo, nxa lo mama une drama,” which means (this is why I hate my mother-in-law. She’s doing shit and is full of drama).”
Zama also commented, claiming she despises Babes and does not recommend her to Mandla as a bride.
“I saw her WhatsApp status and I don’t like her either. In fact, I hate her. Mampintsha should not have married her.”
“Babes … is not wife material,” she added.
“I don’t want to ever see her again, mainly because she abuses my son … and we have to protect Mampintsha from her.
“I’ve had it with this girl and Mampintsha must never bring her to my house again.”
Zama and Babes had broken up and Zama does not want her to attend her funeral.
Mampintsha’s mother also expressed her regret for being unable to attend her grandson’s birthday celebrations.
“I love my grandson and I feel bad for missing his birthday, but his parents are evil. By now we should have performed the isiphandla welcoming ceremony and burned impepho for Sponge, but Babes has constantly refused to bring him home,” said Zama
“She’s clearly stated she will not allow traditional ceremonies to be performed on her son because she’s a Christian.”
Zama believes Babes Wodumo’s apologies from months ago was a ruse to get her to join the reality program.
