Controversial couple Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha have decided to make things official. Yesterday during a radio interview, Shimora popped the big question and a surprised and love-struck Babes said ‘Yes!’
Mandla Maphumulo and Bongekile Simelane, got engaged during an interview on Gagasi FM’s drive time show, hosted by DJ Warras, Nomalanga and Clarrisa, yesterday, Thursday 29 October.
Mampintsha captured the beautiful moment and shared it on his Instagram page. He got down on one knee and uttered the words “I want you to make me the happiest man alive. I want to be part of your mess. We have been dating for quiet some time so I would like to make it official.” A visibly caught off guard Babes said “Really” before agreeing to be his wife.
This momentous proposal comes just a year after they hogged headlines when they opened assault charges against each other. Their relationship has been tainted by many controversies such as allegations of physical violence and Mampintsha being a controlling lover.
Hence the lukewarm reception their engagement got from fans who say ‘as long as Babes is happy.’ Other fans could not care less as Babes had told them before to mind their own business and drink some water.
Their love life was going to be documented on a reality series on Moja Love called Impilo: Mampintsha WestInk. The trailer shook many fans who could not wait to indulge on the show and criticize Babes for staying with an abuser. But following the reception they decided it was best to halt the airing of the show, hosted by Jub Jub. The second trailer sent chills as the abusive natures of both Babes and Shimora became evident.
Following the cancellation of their highly-anticipated docu-series, Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha have issued out an apology to fans.
The couple was granted a court interdict to halt the airing of their series on Moja Love. Their reality series was going to let fans into their private lives and have then see how their relationship went on a downward spiral.
Disappointing their fans and viewers on the rescheduling of the series, Mampintsha issued an apology and explained how they wish to better their image as individuals and as a couple.
“We noted with great concern your comments and expressions of disappointment at us. We wish to assure you that your disappointment is of great regret to us, as we only seek to entertain you during the times of disappointment, and not the opposite,” Mampintsha wrote.
