Babes Wodumo and Mampinstsha have released a new song together. But what does this mean? It was only two months ago that a video went viral of Mampintsha hitting his girlfriend, Wodumo, and assault charges were opened. Could they be back together? And what about the assault charges?
According to TshisaLive, Mampintsha’s manager, Lindo “Dogg DBN” Buthelezi told the publication that the muso had dropped the assault charges against Wodumo, and insisted the couple is back together.
He said: “When you are in a relationship with someone and you have different personalities, things can happen. People are waiting for them to fight and go at each other, but they are in love. This is real. The love is real. This was not fabricated. We are not playing anyone for fools.”
But Wodumo’s manager, Nondumiso Simelane, did not respond to questions. Simelane is keeping mum on the subject, however previously denied any speculation that the couple had gotten back together. She said they were not gonna drop the assault charges.
Unfortunately, the NPA and lawyers from both parties were unavailable for comment. However the decision to follow up on the case lies in the hands of the NPA.
Lawyer Buhle Tonise from Tonise Attorneys told TshisaLive that the NPA could withdraw the case if the victim refused to testify, and the NPA would have to make sure the withdrawal is voluntary and he or she isn’t being influenced or manipulated.
Meanwhile, Mampintsha released a track and music video last Friday featuring Wodumo. The track is called Khona iy’ngame kayndlini, which was taken from a line said by Mampintsha in the assault video. The video shows the Mampintsha and Wodumo arguing before she races off in a car, accompanied by muso, Tipcee.
Take a look at the music video below:
Meanwhile Mzansi fans were not happy about the news of the reunion or the fact that they are promoting domestic violence. Take a look at a few comments below:
Less than two weeks ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Durban magistrate, Jackie Jonck, gave Gqom star, Babes Wodumo, a mouthful after she said car troubles delayed her court appearance again on Wednesday, 24 April.
Due to the Simelane sisters' failure to arrive on time, the common assault charge against Babes Wodumo (who’s real name is Bongekile Simelane), her sister Nondumiso Simelane and artist Tipcee (who’s real name is Thobeka Ndaba) was temporarily stood down.
A warrant of arrest was issued to the Simelane sisters previously when they failed to make their first court appearance. They blamed their absence on car troubles back then too.
When they finally arrived, Jonck scolded Wodumo and said, "If your car is unreliable, take an Uber or a Taxify. This is the last time this court will indulge you. Next time I will cancel your bail and keep you in custody."
