Gqom queen, Babes Wodumo, is currently trending on social media after it was revealed, during Metro FM’s Drive Time radio show, that she was being allegedly abused by her then boyfriend, singer Mampintsha. The show’s hosts, Masechaba Ndlovu and Mo Flava, asked Babes about the abuse and she was dumbfounded. The star also confirmed that she and Mampintsha had broken up and rumors that she was married to him were false.
Twitter was shocked by the revelations, and some were not happy about how they felt the show’s hosts ‘ambushed’ the star.
Here’s a look at what Twitter has been saying about the news;
We are nothing in these men’s eyes. Kanti senzeni? We are not your punching bags. Babes 💔 Uxolo Sisi. We need to be more outraged about this. A simple hashtag #Menaretrash is not enough!!

Masechaba said she’s glad Babes has left “that man” (Mampintsha) & all I could think about much danger she’s in now that he’s been exposed and and she’s left him. The risk of greater harm, including murder, is significant once women try to leave. She’s not out of danger yet 💔

All those times we called Babes unprofessional for constantly missing shows and showing up late. This whole time she was suffering at that mans hands. I feel sick, she sounded so scared 💔

Masechaba Ndlovu was wrong to throw BABES WODUMO under the bus like that, she wasn’t ready to open up , now the whole country knows about her private life.

Every single time we speak against men abusing women, men do it more to prove a point. A lot of men here sit behind their phone speaking against abuse yet after logging out they victimize someone else with beatings. Men are trash. Babes Wodumo May God fight for you & find healing
