Despite calls on social media for Mampintsha to be dropped from the upcoming Umlazi Picnic music festival this weekend its organisers, including DJ Tira, have told TshisaLIVE that the star will still perform.
Mampintsha and Babes are both set to perform at the music festival, a week after claims of assault were levelled against Mampintsha during Babes’s interview with Metro FM’s Masechaba Ndlovu and Mo Flava last Friday.
In the interview, Masechaba claimed that Mampintsha had allegedly punched Babes in the face and broke her leg. Babes cried while the accusations were being made, after earlier saying that their relationship had turned “sour”.
In response to the allegations, Mampintsha said there was a third party who was trying to tarnish his name and claimed he and Babes were still together.
DJ Tira told TshisaLIVE that he was not aware of any complaints against Mampintsha following the claims, and would not drop him from the line-up.
“There is no pressure to drop him and we won’t drop him,” Tira said.
This was repeated by another of the event’s organisers, DJ Boonu, who told TshisaLIVE that he saw no problem with Mampintsha performing.
“As Dj Boonu, I don’t see an problem with him performing at the show. We haven’t received any complaints about him performing.”
Tira also denied social media speculation that he was involved in the leaking of the allegations against Mampintsha because of jealousy.
“I have said it before, I love them and our relationship is good. I do not have a problem with Mampintsha or Babes. I am like everyone, I wish them all the best if they can’t work out whatever problem they have.”
