Have The Fans Cancelled Babes Wodumo?

May 06, 2019, 10:19 AM

Last week Friday, Gqom singer and dancer Babes Wodumo, was facing backlash from her fans, thanks to her involvement in her alleged abuser, Mampintsha's, new song.


The song,  Khona iy'ngane Layndlini, is a reference to what Mampintsha was seen saying to Babes during their altercation, which was live-streamed on Babes' verified Instagram account.

In the video, we witness the kwaito singer telling Babes to keep quiet as there were children in the house -"Khona iy'ngane layndlini".

A few weeks after the incident, Mampintsha was seen performing a new song, which had the phrase: "Khona iy'ngane layndlini". 

Is anybody else rolling their eyes? 

Babes was also soon heard saying the phrase during a performance. Which got more reactions from fans on social media than Mampintsha's performance with the same tagline. 

Well, the song has already gone to number 1 on the local iTunes chart soon after, Mampintsha tweeted about the song on Twitter. 

Fans of the young Gqom starlet started questioning if the abuse video was actually a publicity stunt, to drum up interest in the song; while others still believe that she is a victim of abuse and she doesn't have the power to leave the relationship as her whole livelihood is tied up with Mampintsha. 

Other fans did not mince their words or their outrage towards Babes, others even blame her for women not reporting their abuse to authorities.
