At the height of the coronavirus pandemic in June 2020, Babu Tale lost his first wife, Shamsa Binti Kombo alias Shammy, in what was believed to be a case of pneumonia worsened by Covid-19.

The untimely death of his wife led critics to spread malicious rumours that he allegedly sacrificed his wife in exchange for power.

However, during an interview with Clouds FM Babu Tale refuted the claims, saying the rumours were being spread by jealous people.
