The excitement of the new album release was quickly met with some negativity after the album tracklist showcasing the collaborators on the album was made public. 

Babes' new album, titled ‘Idando Kazi’, lists her long-time collaborator and on-and-off boyfriend Mampintsha. 

The two have had a very public, volatile relationship in the last few years. In early 2019, a warrant of arrest for Mampintsha was issued in connection with an alleged assault on Babes, whose real name is Bongekile Simelane. 

This was after a video in which the two are involved in an altercation was shared on Babes' Instagram account and went viral. 

This video sparked a public intervention by Babes' family, who appealed to their daughter to cut ties with the Big Nuz artist.

Here is the social media reaction to the two artists still making music together:
