South African singer, Babes Wodumo appears desperate to correct the impression of her partner in the media and has launched a docu-series meant to do damage control.
The docu-series has both Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha in it and had her hitting him repeatedly in a move perceived to be designed to paint him as a non-aggresive person.
Recall that Babes Wodumo had made a live video a while ago on which Mampintsha was hitting her. That didn’t go down well with fans who wondered how their superstar could be the kind of woman that got beaten that way. She appears ready to correct that now but it doesn’t seem like it is working.
Speaking in the docu-series, Mampimtsha started:
When I met Babes, she was nobody and she had nothing.
As if that was not enough, he added:
I invested at least R3 million. Ukugeza umuntu kuyabiza (To clean someone up is expensive).
Mampintsha seems to be excusing what she did to the “Gqom Queen” with how much he had spent on her and the overall contribution made to help her become the music star she is today.
Mampintsha had repeatedly physically abused Babes Wodumo before the last incidence that was caught on camera but the couple always find a way to stick together, even though majority of South Africans are not in support of it.
voanews.com reports that:
According to a new government report, a woman is murdered every three hours in South Africa, and many are assaulted and raped before their death.
The star singer behind “Gandaganda”, “Wololo” and more may not be on the good side of music fans but she won’t stay there for long if tweets supporting her are to be believed. While she has faced criticisms, some fans have expressed support too and the next few days will show where things stand.
