A video of self-proclaimed Gqom Queen Babes Wodumo dancing at the memorial service of her late husband Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo, has melted the hearts of many people.
BABES WODUMO DANCES TO ‘NGEKE’ AT MAMPINTSHA’S MEMORIAL SERVICE
The Wololo hitmaker’s fans were worried about her after the news broke out that Mampintsha had succumbed to a stroke following a short stay in the hospital last week.
They have been keeping her in their prayers, and many are relieved to see that she is doing well and trying to remain strong, despite losing the love of her life.
Babes Wodumo was in a jovial mood this morning when Big Nuz’s smash hit Ngeke, played at the late gqom star’s memorial service.
Mampintsha’s memorial service was held at Bishop Vusi Dube’s eThekwini Community Church in the Durban CBD on Thursday, 29 December 2022.
Babs and Mampintsha were arguably Mzansi’s favorite power couple in the limelight. Despite their public scandals, their love and how they constantly hyped each other won the hearts of many people.
As Ngeke played, Babes decided to celebrate her husband’s life despite the controversy surrounding her and her in-laws. The singer stood up and danced with her baby Sponge Wodumo. She sang along to the song as the crowd gathered around her.
The Wololo hitmaker has been praised by her fans for being strong and some pointed out that Mampintsha would have also done the same thing.
