Mampintsha finally breaks his silence over viral video of his mom attacking Babes Wodumo & her family

As the famous saying goes: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That is exactly what Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo has done.

His mother recently appeared in a video bashing his wife Bongekile “Babes Wodumo” Simelane.

Among the many things she said, she accused Babes of faking her pregnancy and putting sponges in her tummy.

Mampintsha didn’t entertain that video.

Instead, yesterday, he posted a photo showing himself and his new wife sitting in what looked like a restaurant.

He then captioned it: “No maka Spontshi” loosely translated, with Sponge’s mother.


People loved what Mampintsha did, saying they respect him for not letting his mother get in the way of his happiness.

“Love how you always manage to turn negative things into things that work for you,” said Nondumiso Mabasa on Facebook.

“I love how you’re making a joke of that situation. You’re making lemonade out of lemons,” said Anele Njapa.

“We are now waiting for a song that says ‘there’s a sponge in this tummy’,” wrote Minenhle Mhlongo.

Babes and Mampintsha tied the knot in a joyous traditional wedding in KZN last weekend.

They got engaged in October last year.
