It’s no secret that Wodumo, real name Bongekile Simelane, and her mother-in-law do not see eye-to-eye. the country was first introduced to the in-law feud back in August 2021 when Babes and Mampintsha launched the music career of their son by giving him the pseudonym ‘Sponge Wodumo’.
Barely a couple of months after smoking the peace pipe and rekindling their relationship, Gqom queen Babes Wodumo and her mother-in-law Zama Gumede are at each other’s throats once again.
This time around, it looks like there is no coming around as Babes Wodumo’s mother-in-law Zama disowned her.
In a WhatsApp status seen by the Daily Sun, Babes Wodumo revealed why she hates her mother-in-law.
“Ingakho umamezala ngingamthandi, ilamasimba awenzayo, nxa lo mama une drama,” which loosely translates to (this is why I hate my mother-in-law. She’s doing shit and is full of drama),” she wrote in the since deleted WhatsApp status.
Responding to Babes Wodumo’s status, Mampintsha’s mom also said that she hates her and said that she shouldn’t have been married to her son because she is not wife material.
“I saw her WhatsApp status and I don’t like her either. In fact, I hate her. Mampintsha should not have married her. Babes … is not wife material. I don’t want to ever see her again, mainly because she abuses my son … and we have to protect Mampintsha from her. “I’ve had it with this girl and Mampintsha must never bring her to my house again.

Zama bemoaned how she was not able to attend her grandson’s birthday as she termed Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha as evil parents.
“I love my grandson and I feel bad for missing his birthday, but his parents are evil. By now we should have performed the isiphandla welcoming ceremony and burned impepho for Sponge, but Babes has constantly refused to bring him home,” said Zama.
Speaking to the Daily Sun, a displeased Gumede warned her son and daughter-in-law against attracting curses into their marriage with their public smearing.
“The Bible says respect your father and your mother so that you will live longer. Clearly, they don’t know that verse in the Bible. They mustn’t make fun of me based on what I’ve said. These kids don’t know how life is. They are only living in a moment. It’s sad,” she said.
