Babes Wodumo allegedly finds love in the hands of Zuma

Babes Wodumo has allegedly found love again, just a little over a year after losing her husband Mandla ‘Mampintsha’ Maphumulo to a stroke, ZiMoja reported.

Babes Wodumo’s late husband and father of her son, Sponge, died on 24 December 2022 at Durdoc Hospital succumbing to a stroke. The queen of Gqom Bongekile Simelane who is best known by her stage name Babes Wodumo has seemingly already moved on.

According to the publication, she is said to allegedly be in a relationship with an Amapiano artist Sabelo Zuma, who is best known as Zuma in the industry.

The 28-year-old window has allegedly been spotted at various events with her alleged new bae. The duo reportedly first sparked romance rumours late last year when they were allegedly spotted together at a music festival.

Zuma is said to be relatively new to the industry, however, the 25-year-old has reportedly already gained a following with his unique blend of Amapiano and traditional Zulu music.


According to iHarare, last year, Babes Wodumo seemingly hinted that she had a new man. She allegedly took to X (the social media platform previously known as Twitter) and posted a photo of herself allegedly cuddling with an unknown man.

The picture is said to have caused a rave on X as the gqom star could allegedly be seen sleeping on the man’s bare chest with her hand resting comfortably on the right side of his chest.
