For a man who is loved by many women across the country, it's surprising to think that at some point in his life, the actor developed some sort of resentment towards women.
Mduduzi Mabaso who is happily married to his wife, Fatima, is in absolute marital bliss, not only a husband but a loving father as well.
However, it has not been all rosy for Mdu, especially when it comes to relationships.
Speaking to Move magazine, the award-winning actor opened a bit about how his previous marriage affected his perspective towards women and love in general.
"I really don't want to dwell too much on my previous marriage. All I can say is that it affected me to the point that I wanted nothing to do with women and I made a vow that I would never love again." Said Mdu
Thankfully, Fatima came into his life at the right time.
Mdu shared how Fatima was the main reason why he gave love a second chance and the only woman who managed to change his negative views about women into positive ones.
The two met on the set of Zone 14 and although they did not hit it off immediately, Mdu was quite intrigued about Fatima who worked with the production crew of the show.
At first, Mdu thought Fatima was a bit snobbish but was curious as to why all the men in the production team were all charmed by her.
The two eventually warmed up to each other and after getting acquainted for two months, Mdu knew that she was the one for him.
"I was pleasantly surprised when she started talking to me. I discovered that we had a lot in common and after two months, I knew that she was the one I wanted to grow old with. I asked her to marry me and the rest is history."
