Mampintsha has reportedly disowned his family members after they bad-mouthed him to the producers of his reality show, Uthando Lodumo.
According to Daily Sun, the singer’s mom, Zama Gumede, and sister, Pinki Gumede revealed that they were paid peanuts for appearing on the show; Zama was allegedly paid R10 000 for season two and Pinki R5 000.
Following their revelation, the West Ink boss got furious and mentioned to them that he is out of the family.
“He called and accused me of bad-mouthing him to Showmax and the producers. He’s angry that I exposed him. He said he wants nothing to do with us because we’re jealous of his success,” Zama said.
“I don’t care because he doesn’t buy me anything.”
Zama said she’s been surviving through small jobs and she’s ordered Showman to take down all the episodes where she featured.
The sister said, “He said we are jealous and trying to bring him down. He said he doesn’t need us because this is his project. We are seeking legal advice to demand our money from Showmax.”
Meanwhile, Showmax company has no plan to intervene in the family rift.
