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”.
Here’s what tweeps had to say about the mud-slinging match…
Not Mampintsha’s mom suddenly having a public platform because she wasn’t invited to the wedding, when she kept quite as a corpse when a video of her son physically assaulting his partner trended. Babes umlayile.

Babes Wodumo to lay charges against Mampintsha’s mom, who claims that Babes is not pregnant. They just got married this weekend and she’s already fighting with her mother in law.
