South African singer, Babes Wodumo was seen being beaten by her boyfriend, Mampintsha during a live video.
The ‘Wololo’ singer can be heard crying in the video after being hit.
Babes had been recording an Instagram live video with her fans at the time of the incident. The video has since gone viral and is trending on Twitter.
It’s not the first time Mampintsha has been accused of assaulting the ‘Queen of Gqom’.
Babes was confronted about rumours that Mampintsha was allegedly violent towards her during a live radio interview in May 2018.
Mampintsha denied the abuse claims.
Babes and Mampintsha are yet to comment on her Instagram live video.
Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa has urged Babes to press charges against Mampintsha.
“We’re absolutely horrified by the actions of Musician Mampintsha @MampintshaNuz caught on video where he brutally abuses internationally celebrated Artist @BABESWODUMO. We do not only condemn this senseless act but call on @BABESWODUMO to immediately press charges against him,” the minister tweeted.
Warning: This video may upset sensitive viewers.
