THE war between Babes Wodumo and Andile Mpisane has reached boiling point.
The self-proclaimed Queen of Gqom has claimed that Andile used her to get into the music scene. According to insiders, Andile briefly dated Babes and learned how things were done in the entertainment industry.
Said an informant: “Andile always wanted to be famous, but didn’t have anyone to mentor or show him the ins and out of the industry, so he took the easy way out. He decided to get close to Babes so he could know how to run his brand. Babes thought she was helping her man out and taught him what to do to become a household name.”
The informant said Babes had no clue she’d let a snake into her house.
“Andile stole Babes’ dancers. All four of them no longer perform with her because they’re busy with Andile. Babes didn’t like that, so she stopped one of his performances last month. Babes called Mjay, the owner of Eyadini, and asked him to ban Andile from performing at the venue. And while on stage, his performance was cut short,” the source said.
According to another source, the war between the two must end. Insisted the source: “Babes won’t rest until Andile stops this whole music thing. She’s ready to go all out, as she sees this whole thing as back-stabbing. Andile is clueless about this whole thing. Babes feels Andile owes her an apology. They’re at each other’s throats, and the Eyadini stunt is only the beginning.”
When called, Babes refused to comment and hung up the phone. Andile could not be reached for comment and his phone rang unanswered. His publicist, Hlengiwe Mbambo, refused to comment.
Mjay said: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
