“Does Babes Wodumo take what was done to her seriously? Does she respect those who went all out to stand by her and cancel Mampintsha? Does she understand that gender based violence and femicide are a real thing? (sic),” – one Twitter user wrote on social media
Another user said: “I love Babes Wodumo but nah this ain’t it. She’s literally on her own right now! If she dies, it’s on herself and nobody else! TF?? The nerve to put us through this? I dunno how many times I sweared at Mampintsha and she goes and performs his new song at Rich. I’m so pissed! (sic).”
