A video of a South African female artist has gone viral on social media.
Thousands of followers witnessed the assault of Kwaito star, Babes Wodumo, who secretly went live on Instagram, from her bedroom, on Monday morning.
In the short video, Woduma, can be seen crying hysterically while being beaten by her partner during an argument.
Her long-term partner, Mampintsha, a music artist and producer, can clearly be seen slapping her around in the footage.
The video has since been removed from the artist’s Instagram account but is still makings its rounds across social media.
Thousands of followers, including political parties, have since taken to social media to raise their voices in support of Wodumo.
Arts and culture minister Nathi Mathethwa, in a public statement, said he was horrified by the actions of Mampinstha, and does not condemn the senseless act. He called on the female artist to press charges immediately. (Deen Times)
