National treasure Bongekile ‘Babes Wodumo’ Simelane has announced she is single, much to the delight of many.

But before we get too excited, there’s a catch! The ‘Wololo’ hit maker hopped on to her Instagram account to announce that although she’s now single, she knows exactly who it is she wants.

Rumours of her alleged engagement to musician and fellow label mate Mampintsha have swirled all year, this looks to be over, as Babes has been spotted without her engagement ring lately. Without revealing who the lucky man was, Babes once shared she was engaged in an interview, leaving many to speculate and finger Mampintsha.

“There’s no one who can take your place. The way you smile‚ the way you look‚ the way you always know what I am thinking about‚ the way you gave me hug when all was needed‚ the way you cry‚ laugh‚ listen and love‚” she gushed about Mampintsha on Instagram last year.


To date, the two have not responded to speculations despite being seen in public together and Babes Wodumo sharing sweet messages about Mampintsha all over social media.

The bad news is that Babes Wodumo already has an eye on someone, as she said on Instagram: “I’m single, but I know who I want.”

While some were excited over the news, saying they’d try their luck, while others expressed their disbelief at her announcement.

Twitter CSI was quick to drag rapper Cassper Nyovest into the mix. The two artists have been working together on some new music, and folks think Nyovest (who’s also allegedly single) is the person Babes is referring to.

Only time will tell if she really is single and whether Cassper is the lucky guy.
