- Musa Mseleku and his wives opened up their homes to the world in 2017
- Their reality show, Uthando Nes'thembu, proved popular
- They said their wanted to break myths about polygamy
Mzansi Magic's Uthando Nes'thembu was one of the most popular reality TV shows in South Africa in 2017.
It featured polygamist Musa Mseleku and his four wives, MaCele (first wife), MaYeni (second wife), MaKhumalo (third wife), and MaNgwabe (fourth wife).
Briefly.co.za gathered that the family does not regret opening up their home to the world because they wanted to break some myths about polygamy.
Speaking to Times Live, MaNgwabe dispelled the notion that she agreed to be Musa's fourth wife for reasons other than love. She said:
Sometimes women stop and ask me why or how I do it. They are baffled that I am fourth wife. I try to explain to them that I made this choice. I love Musa and I get all that I need from our relationship.
Musa added that he appreciates how viewers loved his first wife MaCele because society often makes first wives feel inferior.
Viewers also rallied to offer support to MaKhumalo, who, as the show revealed, was having difficulties having children of her own.
Musa said the family will soon return to Mzansi's TV screens with another season of the show.
We are grateful and humbled that South Africans really took us into their homes. We achieved what we had set out to do, which is create a dialogue around a lifestyle that most people tend to judge without understanding. And, it was only the beginning.
