Uthando Nes'thembu star Musa Mseleku has become a household name in Mzansi. Him and his wives have made a lasting impression on society and opened people’s eyes to the reality of polygamy.
Their reality TV show has given people a new perspective on the daily routine and norms of a polygamist lifestyle. Musa has done a lot to grow his career and brand too.
Briefly.co.za has seen that Musa’s values lie around protecting tradition and honouring women for all that they are. Letting the world into their lives has helped us see things from a different angle, but not all have been that accepting.
People have had a lot to say about Musa and his wives since they let us into their home. However, Musa has always stayed true to his beliefs and stuck by his family.
Here are three moments from Uthando Nes'thembu in 2018 that opened the eyes of many and stumped generalised stereotypes about polygamy:
1. Plural wives can be genuinely happy
MaKhumalo, one of the wives, always looks overly pleased with her life. Viewers thought this was a bit fishy and accused her of playing happy for the cameras to make polygamy look good.
Despite what haters had to say, MaKhumalo openly expressed that she was genuinely happy with her life and had no reason to act otherwise.
2. It is never too late for another wife
Musa shocked us all, even his wives, when he stated that he may be thinking of bringing on a fifth wife.
Bringing on another wife is not a simple task. Musa has a strict set of qualities that he is looking for. A new wife has to fit in, she cannot come and upset the balance. If the other wives do not like her then Musa will not even consider marriage.
3. A husband of four and a healer
The man himself stated that he has the ability to heal. Musa said that he had healed many before, but one that he could not, is his wife MaKhumalo.
MaKhumalo is unable to have children and Musa said that this was up to God to deal with and that it was out of his control. People smelt a slight rat here, but Musa strongly believes that he has the power to heal.
We are not sure what 2019 will bring to the Mseleku households, but we cannot wait to see.
