Babes Wodumo accused of neglecting family

Despite the fact that Babes Wodumo is one of the most booked artists on the continent, reports from Isolezwe reaching the public state that Babes, born Bongekile Simelane, is in no way supporting her family, and her father, who is a Bishop, has taken to living off donations from his congregation as well as the occasional financial support from Mampintsha.

Those who've followed her career will be well aware that Babes' father has been very vocal about his distaste for Mampintsha, so it's truly a surprise to see that he's been their salvation at this time.

According to the publication, Babes, who apparently makes close to R 500 000 per month, makes empty promises to send money home, but never does. There seems to be some bad blood within the family and that could be why Babes doesn't feel the need to help out or involve herself in any way. When reached for comment Babes' father stated that he does not discuss family matters with the media, and neither Babes nor Mampintsha have said anything about the article yet.

This year Babes featured on the blockbuster movie Black Panther soundtrack as well as got to work with mega producer Diplo so we know she can help out at home, if these rumours are true. The question is, why doesn't she? Last we heard from her she was set to perform at the Dublin show alongside Charma Gal but didn't, as she blasted the promoter for shady dealings. Maybe things aren't truly as they seem.
