Babes wodumo has been dumped . . . AGAIN!
Her former and most recent manager, Hlengiwe Mbambo, walked away from the Gqom queen. Hlengiwe is the third manager to have left Babes, real name Bongekile Simelane, to her own devices.
This time around, it’s rumoured that the 23-year-old’s relatives are the problem. That, and how Babes is allegedly behaving as a brand.
Hlengiwe confirmed the split, but was tight-lipped about her reasons.
“I can’t reveal the reasons why I decided to walk away because of the client confidentiality.”
But sources close to the situation were more than willing to spill the tea.
According to one mole, this whole hullabaloo comes after Hlengiwe allegedly had a fallout with Babes’ sister. And another Sunday Sun source confirmed the rumours, saying this was a ticking time bomb.
“Babes is out of control and unmanageable since she left West Ink. Her relatives believe they’re also celebs and want to be in the spotlight. It’s not about them, but about Babes. She should manage them as they’re killing her brand,” the source said.
Babes was not available for comment this week. Her phone rang unanswered and she did not respond to our SMSes at the time of going to print.
