There have been concerns about Babes Wodumo's lack of proper mourning over the death of her deceased husband lately. Sis has had her fair share of bad press in the tabloids, from being called out for not mourning Mampintsha's death, to threatening to leak nudes of the deceased star's side chicks and clubbing.

Now, Nota who has gained a reputation for dragging celebs and not mincing words has addressed Babes Wodumo's recent scandals and weighed in on what he calls a 'satanic industry.'

In a video making the rounds on social media, Nota slams fellow industry mates for loving money and for "worshiping satan."

"Fellow South African industry mates you guys are witches, you worship satan, you do not know God, you love money," he says. Nota then drags Babes for performing at nightclubs instead of being at home mourning her husband. Babes recently caused a stir on social media after a video of her saying she is not in mourning, but rather dancing and getting drunk went viral.

"You cannot even mourn when your husband die, you must dance, you must talk about how much money you used to make or wanna make, you cannot even bury your husband in this fucken industry. If you marry someone in the industry, she will use your death to make money. Your family will use you as a cash cow and go to the press to talk about how great you were just so that people can give them money while you are rotting as a corpse. Mampintsha 's body is not even stiff under the ground yet his entire family is being milked like a cash cow," he says.
Mampintsha's mother Zamanguni Gumede is also livid and has also slammed Babes Wodumo's behavior. In an interview with Zimoja Lezinto, she said Babes is disrespecting her late son.

β€œOne; no offence, I love Babes, she and I reunited and made peace at the funeral, but this is not how things are done" said Zamanguni Gumede.

Zama and Babes recently smoked the peace pipe after a long-simmering beef, but she did not shy away from calling her out for misappropriating the traditional mourning process. β€œFirstly, she is not at home, she is gallivanting in the streets, drinking and partying. Two, she is not wearing traditional mourning clothes. The daughter of a pastor is not following the rules. She is doing things her own way" added Zamanguni Gumede

She added that she is not too traditional herself, but Babes Wodumo is being extra and it's painful to watch.

β€œI am not a very traditional person myself, and I understand people heal differently and deal with grief in their own way, but this is not right. This is painful to watch. She is disrespecting my son in a way" said Zamanguni Gumede.
