At the launch of Mampintsha’s solo song recently, Babes Wodumo was spotted wearing a rock on the ring finger.
When asked whether it was an engagement ring, Babes said it wasn’t.
“It’s not an engagement ring – it’s just swag.”
She was seen wearing the same ring on the same finger a week ago.
Her father, Mbongeni Simelane has however cleared the air. According to him, Babes is not engaged nor married.
“To be engaged in my culture means a man sends his family to negotiate a prize for the bride and that has not happened for her,” he said.
Mbongeni says his daughter is responsible for her own life choices.
“If Babes wants to have a secret engagement or marriage, that’s her business. I can’t force my values on her because she’s old enough to decide for herself.”
Interestingly, last year Babes said she was engaged to her boyfriend of seven years. At the time she said she doesn’t wear the ring so as to avoid being questioned.
It has become harder to tell what exactly is going on in Babes’ love life.
