SA gqom singer Babes Wodumo is in the news again as she was assaulted by her longtime boyfriend and producer Manpintsha. This is not the first time reports of this have surfaced but this is the first time it would be caught on Instagram Live earlier this morning.
It seems she hid the camera and went live to let people of the alleged assault as this happened. While Babes was swearing at the man believed to be Manpintsha, he responded by slapping her but he walked away and returned to hit her again.
Colleagues and friend have been calling for Manpintsha’s arrest and prosecution.
See reactions from Cassper Nyovest, DJ Zhinle, Boity, Amanda Black:
Mampintsha needs to be stopped. I hope they make an example out of him so every man knows that hitting a woman is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. My heart breaks for Babes. 💔

I’m not exactly sure what the law says, but can’t @SAPoliceService arrest Mampintsha first just because a crime was committed and there’s proof, even if Babes hasn’t pressed charges? Babes needs support to know we have her back, I hope she presses charges and leaves,And heals.
