Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha Shimora finally poured their hearts out in their first joint interview since 'that' video of Mampintsha allegedly slapping Babes went viral a few months ago.
They had an exclusive interview with Ukhozi FM’s Lady D in which they spoke out about their music and how they work better as a team.
The pair, who now call themselves Bonnie and Clyde, were promoting their new music on radio. They were rather jolly and preferred not to go into any details about what had happened between them or about what is currently happening with them relationship-wise.
“We are very grateful for the love we get. It’s very clear that people love us. I mean, when things happen and they hear that we are involved, everything stops,” said Babes.
Mampintsha said: “We are grateful for the understanding and I just wanna say to them [the fans] without saying too much, let us watch our behaviours and treat these women like the valuable people they are.”
The pair, who both opened cases of assault against each other following the viral video, have since “reconciled” and released new music together, despite many fans and family members disapproving of the union.
Mampintsha also admitted that his new music wasn’t as popular as before so he came up with a strategy to change that.
“I sang a lot about Durban, so now I wanted to accumulate Joburg people, because we are South African artists, not Durban’s. My new song is about Joburg. I’ve figured out that I’m not being played a lot [in] these places, so I decided to make my music more inclusive, because I’m clever. I want to see if that won’t make a difference, because I feel like I’m closed out,” he said.
Babes quickly agreed, saying, “Yeah, It’s enough now, forgive him already.”
Meanwhile, two days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that Babes Wodumo's dad was left very unimpressed with a saucy video of her in a jacuzzi with Mampintsha. In fact, he's not happy that the two are back together. Most people wouldn't blame him after everything that's happened.
It's as if the drama surrounding Babes Wodumo just won't end. Just a few days ago, she made entertainment headlines when she shared a video of her and Mampintsha in a jacuzzi.
Granted, the video was quite steamy and obviously got a lot of people's attention, as reported on earlier by Briefly.co.za.
Now it's reported that her father, Welcome Simelane, isn't happy about the video, or the two of them being together. After everything that's happened, who can blame the man?
