According to a statement released by Big Nuz on Thursday 22 December, Mandla Maphumulo popularly known as Mampintsha, was admitted to King Edward Hospital in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, after he suffered a stroke over the weekend. The statement comes after Daily Sun claimed the Ngeke hitmaker missed a ritual that was supposed to be performed for him by his family, and a few days later they learned that he had suffered a stroke that affected his speech.

“The star affectionately known as Mampintsha from multi-award winning group Big Nuz has suffered a minor stroke a week ago upon return from a performance with Big Nuz. He is currently in hospital receiving medical attention and us under doctors observation,” Afrotainment said in the brief statement issued on social media.

In light of his hospitalization, Mampintsha’s family has asked for privacy and prayers from the public.“The family asks that the public and media respect their privacy during this difficult time. We ask that you keep him in your prayers. Afrotainment wishes him a speedy recovery and we cannot wait to see him rock our stages again,” Afrotainment further said.

The 40-year-old gqom star is married to Babes Wodumo and they are blessed with a 1-year-old son together- Sponge Wodumo. It is no secret that Babes and Mampintsha’s marriage has not been smooth sailing. In 2019, the couple hogged the headlines after a disturbing video of Mampintsha physically assaulting Babes surfaced on social media. The gqom star opened a case of assault against her husband, but later dropped the charges after rekindling their love and undergoing therapy.

At the time Babes’ music career was soaring as she was getting international books and award nominations, but it eventually fell off. Tweeps suspect that her “toxic relationship” with Mampintsha, resulted in the demise of her once-booming career.
