When Mampintsha, real name Mandla Maphumulo died in December last year after suffering a stroke, fans thought it would be the end of the show. However, in March, Zimoja reported that the show would go on.


“Babes is trying to secure her future especially after her husband died, she has a family to take care of including a small baby.

“The show received such good reviews that the TV channel had no choice but to give the show another season,” a source revealed to the publication.

In July, Babes took to her Instagram to share that she is in studio and fans should brace themselves for more music.

This followed shortly after IsiZulu newspaper Isolezwe reported that she is critically ill.

The publication reported, at the time, that its sources revealed that Babes was in and out of hospital due to an undisclosed. Sources claimed that Babes was severely ill and suffers from shortness of breath.

Another source claimed that her husband Mampitsha’s death had taken its toll on her.

However, Babes’ sister and manager Nondumiso Simelane denied the reports, saying that the Wololo hitmaker was in good health.

“[Babes Wodumo] is in great health. Maybe her silence on social media is why they are assuming she is not well. She is currently busy with two albums, her own and Mampintshas,” Nondumiso said.
