Gqom singer, Babes Wodumo has been having a tough couple of months. From the abuse allegations to court appearances to the almost docu-series, it has been a whirlwind. Babes’ father, Bishop Welcome Simelane has spoken up that he believes that his daughter has been bewitched by Mampintsha.
Welcome has been spoken about before about what he believes to be an abusive relationship between his daughter and Mampintsha.
Talking to the Daily Sun, Welcome asked church leaders to pray for his daughter.
‘Sometimes she does strange things. She behaves like a possessed person. It’s like she’s out of her mind. She’s tried to leave Mampintsha many times, but he lures her back. I’m hurting because he won’t let her go.’
‘It’s unhealthy and I don’t like it. Their relationship is on and off. I don’t know what’s happening between them. They no longer update me, but as a father, I can see things aren’t okay. I’ll have to wait and see,’ Welcome said.
Babes and Mampintsha were supposed to premiere their own docu-series on Moja Love called Impilo, but they took the channel to court to stop the broadcast at the last minute.
About her situation, Welcome said, ‘I’ve asked church elders to pray for my daughter. I explained everything to them. I know they’re praying for her. I’m appealing to South Africans, all churches and church leaders to pray for Babes.’
