It is not clear what caused Babes and Mampintsha to release a stinging public statement, but they both seem to be fuming. Mampintsha and Babes Wodumo decided to breathe fire about DJ Tira's Feud and Engagement Rumours.
However, what we know is that Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha have come out guns blazing against what they have labelled ‘lies and distorted facts’ about them.
Over the past few months the rumoured couple have found their names making headlines for numerous reasons, including an apparent feud with DJ Tira, charging too much for bookings and for their rumoured engagement.
Tira recently revealed to TshisaLIVE that he was not able to book Babes for his upcoming Gqom In Concert music festival stage because he was told that she was unavailable unless he paid a premium price for her.
“I don’t know why I was quoted so much. I guess a person has a right to charge as much as they want, but I know for a fact that it was not her normal fee that I was being quoted. I don’t know if it was because it was me or the show, but the price was higher than we could afford and we could not match it. We hope that they (Mampintsha and West Ink Records) will still come around and we can negotiate the fee.”
Babes and Mampintsha have made it clear that they’re fed up and do not want to “engage in petty and unproductive battles that benefit no one”.
“We would rather be talking about Babes Wodumo’s Foundation and her new single that’s coming out, Mampintsha’s hit single Amaketanga and his upcoming single that will change the game than to be continuously dragged into the media for the wrong reasons. we want to talk about good stories and most importantly we want peace,” they said, which was seen by fans as a shot at Afrotainment boss DJ Tira.
They further claimed that their “enemies” were trying to ruin their reputation with lies.
“At the height of it all, our adversaries will ramp up their offensive and they will throw everything at us. A lot will be said, facts will be doctored and lies will be manufactured all in an attempt to tarnish our image and bring us down. But we will not be distracted by all that and lose our focus,” they added.
Before the weekend, West Ink Boss Mampintsha & Babes Wodumo finally came forward to clear the air on rumours that have been circulating around from their alleged engagement to the feud with Tira and a whole other things they felt the need to highlight for the public to know. The pair said that they are tired of people dragging their names through mud with what they claims to be lies & distorted facts.
