Babes WODUMO, the Gqom queen, has a legion of dedicated fans who have recently expressed their concern for her after an emotional Instagram Live video where she broke down.
The Emotional Breakdown
The Wololo hitmaker, still mourning the loss of her late husband, Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo, could not hold back her tears. It was triggered by the haunting strains of Mampintsha’s song “Ngeke.” Mampintsha, a member of the renowned group Big Nuz, tragically passed away in December 2022 after suffering a stroke.
In the heart-wrenching Instagram Live video, Babes was joined by her sister and manager, Nonfumiso Simelane, as well as another gentleman, within what appeared to be a recording studio. As her tears flowed, she found solace in the comforting embrace of her sister, who planted several kisses on her tear-stained cheeks.
