The ink is barely dry on Babes Wodumo & Mampintsha’s marriage certificate and there’s already drama surrounding their union…

The gqom singer and dancer wed her music producer boyfriend of a decade over the weekend. But one person who is not happy with the couple making things official is Mampintsha’s mom Zama Gumede who posted a video of herself slating her son over his bride of choice.


In the cringey clip circulating on social media, Mampintsha’s mom accuses Babes of a number of obscene things such as…

  • lying about her pregnancy (she says Babes claimed she was pregnant with twins)
  • wearing a fake baby bump
  • turning her son against her
  • excluding her from their traditional wedding ceremony and from receiving wedding gifts
  • calling her a number of derogatory names like ‘the devil’

Babes responded to video by telling the Daily News that she would press charges against against her mother-in-law for slandering her name

She told the publication; “I am going to press charges against her for humiliating me in public and for swearing at me. I don’t understand why she is dragging my name in the mud.”

Babes also insisted that she is pregnant and accused Mampintsha’s mom of being a drunk.

She added; “I am pregnant, whether she likes it or not. If she has problems with it, she must deal with it. I am hurt about this. I know most of the things she says when she is drunk should not be taken seriously, but this time she has gone too far”.
