Musa Museleku-South African Businessman
He is regarded as one of Mzansi's wealthiest men, with four wives. Yes, you read that correctly. Musa Mseleku, who has four wives and ten children, is a polygamist. Many people in Mzansi would have never heard of him if it hadn't been for Mzansi Magic's new reality show, Uthando Nesthembu, which airs every Thursday night.

Musa Mseleku began his career as a journalist at Ukhozi FM before becoming a businessman.

He was born in 1975 in Mzumbe, Kwa-Madlala, and as of 2021, Musa Mseleku is 46 years old.

Musa Mseleku Family

His late mother is Joyce Mseleku Nomathemba, and his late grandmother is Phiwe Flo Dingile Mseleku.

Musa Mseleku Wives and Children

So, how does Musa manage in this difficult economic climate, others might ask? Today, having a polygamous relationship may not be what you want. Musa currently has four spouses and ten children. He married his first wife, MaCele, in 2002 and welcomed MaYeni as his second wife five years later. In 2009, he married his third and fourth wives, MaKhumalo and MaNgwabe.

Macele Mseleku is a quiet woman who is characterized as a woman of few words by her spouse. He, on the other hand, goes on to remark that she is open and expresses her feelings when something has to be said. MaCele isn't afraid to speak her mind.

Mayeni Mseleku, his second wife, has been labeled as the calm one, but she is also one who will push back if necessary. Mseleku describes herself as an excellent listener who seeks clarification when she is unsure of something.

According to her spouse, Thobile Mseleku, MaKhumalo, is an open book. Mseleku claims that she used to hide her genuine feelings at first, but that she has become more honest over time.

Mangwabe Mseleku, the fourth wife, is a quiet woman who can keep grudges for a long time. Her husband claims that she is constantly reminding him of prior events, particularly when he forgets to do something. Ouch!

With Macele, Mayeni, and Mangwabe, he had children. He had two daughters from two different relationships outside of marriage, Snenhlanhla and Mpiloenhle.

Musa had a fifth wife, Sindi Saule, who was discovered by Mzansi in 2018. Sindi, who died in a vehicle accident a few years ago, had a wonderful relationship with several of the spouses, particularly MaKhumalo. MaCele, on the other hand, did not appear fond of her, and when Musa requested her to visit her tomb with the other wives, she refused to talk about her at all.

Musa was lately on the lookout for wife number five, and even Petronella from The Queen was interested. For dinner with the businessman, women from all walks of life had to pay R5000.

Musa Mseleku Career

Many people wonder what Musa does to finance his wealthy lifestyle with his wives. What does he do for a living? He worked as a journalist for Durban Youth Radio before going on to SBC News. He is also in charge of the rural areas at the Ugu District Municipality, where he works in community development.

Musa established the Phiwe Ukufunda initiative, which helps the less fortunate. He is also able to provide for all of his family members and provide them with a luxurious lifestyle. Musa Mseleku's business, if he engages in it at all, must be extremely valuable. His wives each have a lovely residence and two cars, as well as a family mechanic and a driver.

Musa Mseleku Reality Television

Musa Mseleku rose to prominence in Mzansi after appearing on the Mzansi Magic reality show Uthando Nesthembu. Thousands of fans tune in every Thursday to see the Mseleku family go about their daily lives as a polygamous household on the hit show.

Mseleku and MaCele's traditional wedding was a big hit. Here's a sneak peek.

Mzansi Magic just debuted its new show Mnakwethu, which is hosted by Musa Mseleku. Mnakwethu is based on anything that has to do with Isithembu (polygamy). Men interested in polygamy write in to the show in the hopes of being guided by renowned polygamist Musa Mseleku of Uthando Nes'thembu.
However, once the first episode of the show appeared on television, it seemed to have rubbed many people the wrong way. Viewers, particularly women, thought the show showed a complete disdain for women and the fundamental goal of polygamy in African civilizations. You make the decision for yourself, and we'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments area.

Tweeps wasted no time in expressing their dissatisfaction with the show's tone and overall organization. Ayanda Borotho, a devout feminist, had a few words to say.

Musa Mseleku Controversy

It must be difficult to live in a household where you must share the man you adore. This, on the other hand, works for some ladies. In practically every marriage, there are multiple layers of dysfunction. Particularly polygamous ones, because it involves a few more partners.

Fresh claims of flaws in the seemingly well-oiled polygamous marriage appeared early last year, when things allegedly took a fairly unpleasant turn.

After a furious disagreement between themselves, Musa, and Thobile MaKhumalo - Mseleku, Mayeni and Mangwabe allegedly fled the Mseleku complex. All of this happened when MaKhumalo brought in someone who was rumored to be a surrogate for her, as she has been diagnosed with infertility. This did not go over well with the other wives.

Musa Mseleku Net Worth

Musa is one of Mzansi's wealthiest celebrities, because to his numerous business ventures. Is there anything Musa can't afford or provide for his family, for example?

Musa Mseleku is a one-of-a-kind individual. He made the decision to be polygamous since he wanted numerous children and nothing could stop him. Despite the difficulties that come with being polygamous, he is a successful guy. All that counts to him is that he looks after his wives and family. After all, having money makes things a lot easier.
