Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha bag multi-million rand deal for upcoming reality show, Uthando Lodumo
Controversial celebrity couple, Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha have announced that they will be bringing their highly anticipated reality show to Showmax. The couple’s reality show title “Uthando Lodumo” is making its debut on streaming platform Showmax, in February 2021. The show is rumoured to be worth 3 million Rands.
Uthando Lodumo is produced by SAFTA winner Thomas Gumede and SAFTA nominee Lungile Radu through their company, Parental Advisory Productions. The reality show is expected to give viewers a front-row seat into the couple’s lives as they prepare for the next phase of their relationship.
Mampintsha recently asked Babes Wodumo to marry him live on radio
Mampintsha recently went on one knee live on Gagasi FM and asked Babes Wodumo to marry him.
“Within a blink of an eye and now I’m left speechless, the journey wasn’t easy but we stuck together through thick and thin. Ngiyabonga Mashimane,” Babes wrote in a caption to the engagement video.
He had proposed to her almost a year after he joked in an Instagram post if she would accept if he proposed.
“Babes and Mampintsha’s relationship has not been a fairy tale romance. They’ve had serious issues as a couple, yet have chosen to remain together. The show focuses on how they have overcome their challenges, working through them with their families,” comments Nomsa Philiso, Channel Directore- Local Entertainment.
“Uthando Lodumo takes on sensitive themes like gender-based violence, so is sure to be very topical and hit a raw nerve with audiences. “We do not condone any form of abuse or gender-based violence, but we believe that South Africans need to start talking honestly about these issues and confronting them,” added Philiso.
Last year, the duo were meant to premiere a television show, Impilo, a show simply described as “toxic” and “unnecessary”. The Jub-Jub produced show was expected to air on Moja Love TV. It looks like Uthando Lodumo will be their saving grace.
Looking forward to it?
