Radio host Mo Flava (real name Moeti Tsiki) has spoken up about his recent interview with Gqom Queen Babes Wodumo several months back, describing it as an epic fail.
Mo Flava who has got an impressive résumé and functions as a radio DJ, club DJ, MC, producer, professional VO and artiste had interviewed Babes Wodumo in the period when “rumours” of her abuse in the hands of then boyfriend and music partner Mampintsha saturated cyberspace.
During the interview in question, which he co-hosted with Masechaba Ndlovu, Babes Wodumo was not the one who spoke. She elected that Masechaba Ndlovu speak for her. Ndlovu did, providing horrifying details of abuse.
In retrospect, Mo Flava said that Masechaba Ndlovu, a member of the interviewing team, should never have been the one to speak for Babes Wodumo in the first place. He made this disclosure in a recent chat with Azania Mosaka of SABC 3’s Real Talk show.
Said Mo Flava: “As a broadcaster, I recognise my mistake and that maybe we could have handled it differently. What I love about Masechaba is that she has owned up to her mistake, she’s owned her wrongdoing. The Babes (Wodumo) interview was an epic fail.”
