Babes Wodumo explains why she danced near the coffin of Mampintsha’s mum, Zamanguni Gumede.
The 64-year-old died on 15 January after being hospitalised following a minor stroke just weeks after her son, Big Nuz musician Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo died.
It was rumored that the Gqom queen won’t be attending the funeral service of her mother-in-law, but she disappointed the reports by attending alongside her family members.
She sponsored the funeral service and also danced near Zama’s coffin, which triggered an uproar on social media with people lamenting.
Speaking to Drum, Babes Wodumo said she has forgiven her late mother-in-law and the dance was not a show-off but in good a spirit.
“I wasn’t doing this to show off or that I want the media to paint me in a good light. This woman lying here is also my mother, she gave birth to my husband. So God has taught me the ministry of forgiveness and I’ve done that,” she said.
