- He took to social media to defend himself and state his case
The Babes Wodumo abuse incident has sent Mzansi into a spiral of utter shock. DJ Tira has been dragged into the mess and accused of remaining silent about his former band mate, Mampintsha’s abusive ways.
A live Instagram video of Babes allegedly being assaulted by her boyfriend Mampintsha went viral and has caused complete havoc in Mzansi.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Tira was dragged so far into this mess that he too was trending on Twitter along with Mampintsha and Babes.
After Tira shared the horrific video in complete disgust and shock, he received a wave of unexpected backlash from the public accusing him of ‘doing nothing’.
Tira felt that the accusations and shade throwing was extremely harsh as he had done his best to try and help Babes whilst remaining respectful to her wishes and their relationship.
Taking to social media, Tira expressed his sadness towards the situation and his frustration with having ‘to deal with the backlash of this issue as a third party’.
He then went on to highlight his indefinite stand against woman abuse by stating that he ‘strongly and wholeheartedly’ believes ‘that no man should ever lay a hand on a woman, no matter what the circumstances’.
Tira is shocked and extremely heart sore for Babes. He knows that the people who know him know that he ‘would never enable abuse’. He has ‘reached out to Babes’ and will be there for her as he always has been.
The situation is extremely tricky and it is unfair to point fingers at Tira when he too was in a tough position. At the end of the day he stood by Babes and was always there if she needed, and still is.
