The video by Mampintsha’s mother that upset Babes Wodumo

Bongekile Simelane popularly known by her stage name Babes Wodumo wants to lay charges against her mother-in-law after she claimed that the Gqom queen is faking her pregnancy.

Babes Wodumo married her longtime beau Mampintsha over the past weekend in KwaZulu-Natal.


A video of Mampintsha’s mom Zama Gumede claiming that Babes Wodumo is faking her pregnancy went viral.

In the video Zama Gumede said that Babes Wodumo claimed to be pregnant with twins and to date she had not given birth to twins. She also accused the Wololo hitmaker of putting foam on her tummy to fake a baby bump.

The angry mother-in-law further called Babes Wodumo derogatory terms and accused her of controlling her son and excluding her from the wedding preparations.
Last month, Twitter was in a frenzy after Babes Wodumo was seen with a baby bump and consuming alcohol.

Babes Wodumo was angry that her mother-in-law embarrassed her on a public platform and said she wanted to press charges.

“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,” said Babes Wodumo to Daily News.

Babes Wodumo said that she knows Zama Gumede says things when she is drunk but she had taken this too far as she confirmed her pregnancy.

“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. I am going to press charges against her. I want her to clear my name,” continued Babes Wodumo.

Babes Wodumo also said that her mother-in-law showed up to her wedding drunk and attempted to disrupt the wedding.

“She arrived for the wedding drunk and made demands. I don’t know what this woman wants because she did not raise Mampintsha. Mampintsha was raised by her grandmother. I don’t know why she is dragging me in their family politics,” said Babes Wodumo.

Zama Gumede was upset about not being included in couples wedding celebrations however, Babes Wodumo says she did what was required of her as a wife.

“It was not my responsibility to tell her anything about the wedding preparations. I am hurt by this, but I am not going to let this go. I want to show her that I am from Lamontville, I am going to get her arrested,” she added.

“This was due to the fact that I love and respect my husband for who he is regardless of the hurtful and toxic words his mother had said about our relationship,” said Babes Wodumo.

“She was informed about the wedding beforehand. I did all I was obliged to do as a wife with regards to her as my husband’s mother because I wanted the wedding to bring the two families together,” she added.
