Babes Wodumo's massive 'weight loss' raises eyebrows
First, it was Mampintsha’s mystery weight loss that sent shock waves across social media as fans started making speculations about the musician’s mental and health status.
Just over a month ago, Mampintsha, whose real name is Mandla Maphumulo shared a video of him dancing to a new track, giving fans a preview of his latest jam, but tweeps seemed more concerned about his drastic weigh loss than his music.
On Wednesday, Babes Wodumo's massive weight loss also drove Twitter into a frenzy after a picture of the singer surfaced on social media. In the photograph, the “Wololo” hitmaker, who looks rather slim in denim shorts, is seen with her partner Mampintsha, who’s seated on a couch with a microphone in hand.
While some are still in shock over Babes's “weight loss”, others started pointing fingers at Mampintsha, stating that he has "destroyed" her.
Mampintsha destroyed Babes Wodumo, what a shame.

My heart really goes out to babes wodumo and whatever is going on in her life. We have a culture of kicking a dog when it’s down and almost celebrating people’s downfalls. I really pray she has people that love her and will carry her out of this mess - honestly!

Many, however, questioned the authenticity of the photograph, with some suggesting that the snap is photoshopped.
