Even Mampintsha’s mother Zamanguni Gumede is certainly not jumping for joy either as more concerns have risen surrounding Babes Wodumo and how she is mourning her late husband, Mampintsha.
Without fail, Gqom queen Babes Wodumo have been making headlines since the funeral of her late husband, Mandla ‘Mampintsha’ Maphumulo. Mampintsha was laid to rest last week Friday and New Years Ever Babes Wodumo was seen performing at a New years Eve event ‘Last Dance’ held in Pietermaritzburg.
Although Babes Wodumo was given the green light to take it back to stage by her pastor and marriage counselor, Pastor Dube. Scores of people are certainly not thrilled at how she is mourning and paying her last respect to her Mampintsha.
Talking to Zimoja Lezinto, Mampintsha’s mother Zamanguni Gumede has lambasted Babes Wodumo for not mourning properly and disrespecting her son.
“One; 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
Although the pair seemed to have buried the hatchet of their on-going drama at the funeral. Zamanguni Gumede did not beat around the bush to call out Babes Wodumo for misappropriating the traditional mourning process.
“Firstly, 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

Although Mampitsha’s mother is not so traditionally based herself. However, she does not approve of how Babes Wodumo is mourning her son. Understandably, she is a singer ans a performer but the time frame of how everything is unfolding has become worrisome not only for Mampintsha’s mother but for Mzansi as a whole.
“I 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
Zamanguni Gumede’s biggest concerns is how Babes Wodumo’s parents, who are very religious and faith-based people are letting everything slide at how Babes Wodumo is conducting herself.
“Why are they not saying anything? It has not even been a month. I wouldn’t be shocked If she were to start dating someone. After everything, I am very disappointed. I just want her and me to talk and for us to find a way forward.” ended Zamanguni Gumede
As it stands, Babes Wodumo is under fire after she managed to crack Mampintsha’s phone password. The Wololo hit-maker is already posting via Mampintsha’s Facebook account and has even divulged to people some of the shocking and damning information she came across on Mampintsha’s phone.
“Uhm… sengiy’tholile ipin ka-baby. Thank you baby! [laughs] Ngoba shame indoda yami ingithande kwaze kwafika ekugcineni. Ngisabuka izindaba zenu ke [laughs] Oay jokes aside. So angeke ngibambele muntu igqubu ngiyazibukela nje izindaba. Hayibo akuyizintombi, akuyizintombi layikhaya. Hayi kuyanyiwa” sais Babes Wodumo.
