Babalwa Mneno responds to 'pimp accusations'
Babalwa has dismissed accusations that she's involved in sex trafficking young girls to rich guys for a fee, after Twitter detectives accused her of luring young women through social media.
The allegations against Babalwa were published on Twitter by the @AdvBarryRoux parody account. He shared a screenshot of a conversation in which it was suggested Babalwa was a pimp.
"I’ve never pimped a fly!" Babalwa came out guns blazing at the tweep.

The accusations that Babalwa was allegedly using her gigs as a club hostess to pimp young girls were made over the weekend.
Babalwa defended herself saying she couldn't possibly be a "pimp" and that she had actually previously exposed girls who would DM her with hopes to be pimped or hooked up with rich men.
