After missing a scheduled court appearance in the Durban Magistrate’s Court, musicians Babes Wodumo (Bongekile Simelane) and Tipcee (Thobeka Ndaba), along with Ndumiso Simelane (Babes’ sister) face arrest.

According to Isolezwe, the three were supposed to appear in court along with their legal representative to answer to charges of assault filed by an unidentified woman from an area named Umbilo.

The woman filed the charges in early March shortly after Babes Wodumo and her boyfriend and manager Mandla “Mampintsha” Maphumulo filed counter charges against each other for assault following the viral leak of a live stream video showing Mampintsha assaulting Babes.

According to eNCA, the woman alleges Babes and her co-accused assaulted her following an event at a guest house in Umbilo.
