Uthando Lodumo follows Mapintsha as he proposes to Babes Wodumo live on air on Gagasi FM in October 2020 through marriage counselling, lobola negotiations, and pregnancy all the way to their traditional wedding in April 2021.
Bongekile Simelane and Mandla Maphumulo, aka Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha, are the gqom superstars.
With Wololo, featuring Mampintsha and Distruction Boyz, Babes exploded onto the gqom scene. The song has over 11 million views on Youtube.
The South African Music Award and the MTV Africa Music Awards nominated Wololo for Record of the Year.
However, the couple’s relationship hasn’t always been perfect, with a case of gender-based violence making the rounds on social media in 2019.
Mampintsha, the founder of West Ink Records, is still dealing with the fallout from the incident in Uthando Lodumo, as his initial letter to Babes’ family requesting to marry their daughter was turned down.
Mampintsha’s apologies to her parents may not be enough to prevent her family from turning him away at the gate, according to Babes.
