Newlyweds’ Age Difference Causes Uproar. Last weekend Bongekile Simelane, AKA Babes Wodumo, officially became Mrs. Maphumulo in a beautiful traditional wedding ceremony.
Attended by the whose who in the Durban entertainment industry, the ceremony was a pretty big deal.
What has now become a norm on social media, many are seeking to trample on Babes’ happiness by opening old wounds, scrutinizing her relationship with Mampintsha and blatantly declaring how unhappy they are that she married Shimora.
The couple has gone through a phase of fickleness when abuse became evident within the relationship. However, when many intervened, Babes told everyone to drink water and mind their own businesses. Another issue was the major weight loss both of them endured, leading many to make unwelcome assumptions.
Now, after getting hitched in their 10th year of being a couple, tweeps got startled by the number of years they have apparently been together. Mampintsha is 38 years old and Babes just turned 26, meaning 10 years ago, Shimora was 28, making Babes a 16 year old.
Keeping the same energy at which tweeps dragged Sithelo Shozi for dating Andile Mpisane when he was 17 years old, users are now coming for Shimora for dating Babes when she was 16 years old. It is even alleged that 16-year-old Babes moved in with the then 28-year-old and cohabitated.
I don't have a problem with Mampintsha marrying Babes Wodumo. All I'm saying is that he started dating Babes when she was a minor and moved in with her at 16. Men who prey on young girls must be held accountable, R Mampintsha was wrong!

Zodwa Wabantu had her fair share of getting attacked on social media for dating younger men. The same way Sithelo Shozi got dragged for having a baby with a 19-year-old. Sis got labeled a “predator” and even got nicknamed to R Sthelly. Hectic!
I cringe each time I see those Babes & Mampintsha wedding videos.

Despite all the negativity going on, one cannot take away how ravishing the bride looked, and that noticeable glow on her face. They tied the knot on Sunday at Umhlanga in a traditional ceremony and their white wedding is apparently going to take place in three month’s time, according to her sister Nondumiso, who confirmed this with TshisaLive.
imagine talking shit about Mampintsha and babes when your own father is 20 years older than your mother and he met her when she was still in high school pic.twitter.com/KRkna1beyS
