Gqom singer Bongekile ?Babes Wodumo' Simelane wants all the music that her late husband Mandla ?Mampintsha' Maphumulo had recorded but not released to either be released or given to her to release under his label. The Wololo singer called out Kabza De Small as one of the producers who worked with her husband before he died but has not said anything about releasing his music.




Mampintsha died on December 22, 2022, after being hospitalised due to a stroke. While under medical care, he suffered a second stroke, which led to his death. A few weeks later, his mom also passed away. Babes tells ZiMoja that Mampintsha recorded about two songs with Kabza De Small before he died. "That was more than two years ago, but he is still holding onto the music, haw kahle!" she said. "Either he releases the music or sends it to me, and I will release it under his label as his own. I don't want the legacy of my husband to die just because people are holding onto his music." Babes added.




Babes said other artists have Mmapintsha's vocals on them. "He spent a lot of time in the studio, and there are people for whom he did vocals on their songs but have not released them. I'm asking for umculo wendoda yami (my man's music). His child needs it." Kabza said he has a lot of unreleased music. "I have hundreds of songs that have not even been released, and you wait for the right time. It's the same with Mampintsha. We made a song together, but it wasn't the right time. I have spoken to Babes; the music will be released." Kabza said.
