DURBAN- Babes Wodumo father Reverend Welcome Simelane has slammed the way Metro FM’s DJ Masechaba Ndlovu handled an interview with his daughter, in which Ndlovu claimed that Babes long time former partner Mamphintsha was abusive during their relationship.
Reverend Simelane released a statement on Wednesday saying he was “caught off guard” during the interview.
Simelane said, “Metro FM left us with many unanswered questions. It was clear from the interview that our daughter was not ready and was caught off guard by the presenter. We hope responses about this interview will come from those relevant,”
Simelane claimed that his family had no prior knowledge of the claims or about abuse.
“We were shocked to hear about it (the alleged abuse), we want the nation to know that we are against any kind of abuse against women. We were not even aware they were dating.”
Welcome Simelane also revealed that Babes is now an independent artist and has started her own record label, Wena Wodumo Entertainment.
“After all, we thank Mandla Maphumulo for discovering talent in Babes and grooming her to be where she currently is. We thank all those who supported our daughter, it’s truly showed how much she is loved.”
