In late April 2019, West Ink boss Mampintsha released the single “Khona Iyngane Lay’Ndlini” in collaboration with DJ Tira and CampMasters.
He has just released the music video of the song and it features, surprisingly, Babes Wodumo.
At the time “Khona Iyngane Lay’Ndlini” was originally released, Mampintsha had assault allegations dangling on his neck. Babes Wodumo, his then girlfriend and protégé, had recorded him on Instagram Live as he assaulted her.
The video of the assault had gone viral thereafter and Mampintsha had appeared in court for assault. He was released on bail.
The relationship between Mampintsha and Babes Wodumo is supposedly over. So you can imagine the puzzlement that greeted the news that Babes Wodumo had in fact featured on the music video of Mampintsha’s song.
Could the music video of “Khona Iyngane Lay’Ndlini” have been recorded before the pair fought and then split? It is hard to say at this point.
By the way, the featured artiste DJ Tira runs Afrotainment, one of the major recording labels and artiste management agencies in Sout Africa. He recently featured on Manqonqo’s “Ngibambe” alongside Airic.
CampMasters is a two-man South African band with a long history of collaborating with Mampintsha.
