Babes Wodumo in Mourning. On Saturday, December 24, 2022, Mandla “Mampintsha” Mamphumula’s passing was officially verified. An unexpected passing that was confirmed after hearing that Mampintsha had experienced an unknown stroke a week earlier.
Fans were concerned for wife and fellow Gqom musician Bongekile “Babes Wodumo” Maphumulo, previously Simelane, in the wake of the incident. more so given that Sponge, their toddler son and the only kid she and Mampintsha had shared, was.
While Afrotainment and DJ Tira led the social media update effort, Babes Wodumo was hardly ever seen or heard from. This is because the celebrity has been absent from social media for months as a result of her numerous blunders and altercations with users there.
Now, though, images of Babes Wodumo lamenting the death of her husband have surfaced.
The most recent information provided on Babes Wodumo and her emotional state following the death of her spouse created a somber picture. This is related to claims that Babes was upset when she read on social media that Mampintsha was running late like the rest of us.
The information was revealed on social media by a nurse who was purportedly in Mampintsha’s ward, and it immediately went viral. It came as little shock, then, to learn that Babes supposedly hurled herself into Mampintsha’s coffin when his body arrived at their house.
Despite all of these fresh reports, nobody has actually seen Babes Wodumo’s photographs. But lately, pictures of Babes Wodumo in grief have gone around. Although the location of the original photographs’ posting is unclear,
Babes Wodumo may be seen sitting on the bereavement mattress with her sister and an unidentified family member in the shared collection of photos. Since the Simelanes and Maphumulos have been accused of denying Mampintsha’s family access, the absence of Mampintha’s mother from the photographs given may serve as evidence of the dispute between the two families.

Whether one or both of the ceremonies will be permitted to be webcast is still up in the air. It is up to the family and friends to decide if they want to share the memorial and funeral service with the rest of the county who are not in Durban since the pandemic is slowly coming to an end.
