Babes Wodumo recounts tragedy of losing Mampintsha
Durban-based Gqom queen Babes Wodumo remembered the day she and her family buried her husband, Mampintsha. Babes, real name Bongekile Simelane, shared that when she arrived to view his body, he was covered.
She had asked the people from the funeral parlour in charge of his funeral to unzip the bag so he could breathe. Babes admitted that at that moment, she was very understandably out of her mind.

After the people unzipped the bag, Babes said she was relieved as her husband had some air, and she then proceeded to take pictures.
Babes falls asleep during her rant
Babes Wodumo went on a rant and mentioned how hurt she was by the treatment they received.
During her session, Babes suddenly fell asleep on Instagram live while her viewers flooded her comments section with worried messages.
Briefly News got into contact with an expert Dr Erica Munnik, an expert who said being in the public eye makes people watch your every move and expect perfection from you. The pressure of living up to these expectations may lead to the increased stress for the celebrities.
"Being in the public eye and limelight is somewhat idealised by the general public but can contribute to immense pressure to public known figures."
