THEY say birds of a feather flock together!
This is the case for West Ink boss Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo and Bongekile “Babes Wodumo” Simelane.
Mampintsha, who is a member of the award-winning kwaito group, Big Nuz, allegedly has a fear of flying.
New kid on the block, Babes Wodumo, is rumoured to suffer from the same phobia.
A source claimed: “Babes is scared of flying. If you book her in East London, Joburg and Durban in one weekend, she chooses gigs she’ll be able to drive to.
“She suffers from the same phobia as her boss.
“It can’t be good for her since she’s not making it to most of the gigs.
“She’s young and her music is loved across Mzansi. She must deal with her fear of flying to make more money.
“Music is one game that needs one to make as much money as possible.”
Another source claimed: “At some point she had two gigs in Durban and one in Jozi. She had to drive back and forth to cover those gigs.
“Accidents happen. It’ll be good for her to just get used to the aeroplane to avoid unnecessary accidents.”
Both Mamphintsha and Babes Wodumo were not available for comment.
