DJ Tira who discovered Mampintsha and Babes in music industry congratulated them and challenged other artists like Lvovo, Danger and DJ Bongz to also get married.

“I’m happy that we gathered together here celebrating the love of this couple. Weddings are rare now as we normal attend funerals of our loves ones. All to thanks to the Big Nuz music video for their single Hawaii, because that is where Babes Wodumo was first featured. That is where the couple met and started their love relationship,” he said.
