- Mzansi wasn't exactly feeling Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha's reality TV show, Impilo
- Peeps were so upset by the footage they made it clear they won't be watching
- Now, Mampintsha has shared that he and Babes have approached the court to stop the show from airing
When South Africans heard about the upcoming new documentary starring Babes Wodumo and her bae, Mampintsha, they had doubts.
Then a teaser of part of Impilo was released and peeps were convinced that this is one show they'd rather skip.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that the duo shot a three-part docu-series and in one of the scenes, Babes mercilessly punches Mampintsha after he refuses to give her a bank card.
That told viewers all they had to know and the social media streets have been flooding with negative reactions.
It seems the couple caught wind of the reactions and decided to do something about it.
Babes and Mampinthsa turned to a court to have the show's debut episode delayed. It's likely that Impilo won't ever reach our screens.
The show was set to air on 23 January, but curious viewers had to settle for Uyajola instead.
Moja Love's Head of Channel, Bokani Moyo, confirmed the show had hit a legal problem.
"Jub Jub as a close friend to Babes and Mampintsha wanted to offer the couple an opportunity to explain the abuse incident. The couple decided to go to court to stop the broadcasting of the interview.
"However, because this issue is now in the hands of the court and the matter will be heard on April 2, Moja Love has decided not to broadcast the programme."
Mampintsha shared his and Babes' motivation with fans on social media.
"As your entertainers, and sometimes inspirers, we always strive to keep you seeing us in a good light. However, as human beings, we accept with regret that we will fail you at times.
"We recorded a reality show with intentions to show you our lives in respect of a company we have built with your support, West Ink. The show could not have taken place with parts of our lives being shown.
"The courts have, with great relief, come to our assistance."
