Watch: Date My Family’s Mdu Nyoni Stars In Malinga’s New Music Video


After turning into a trending topic overnight, Date My Family’s Mdu Nyoni is all geared up to play a part in Dr Malinga’s new music video.

Following his appearance on the reality TV show, Mdu made a lot of South Africans laugh. In fact, he caused a social media storm as viewers mocked him for his “fake” accent and lifestyle. This was all in an effort to find love through the show.

But instead of finding love, Mdu became the talk of town with everyone criticizing his “British accent” among other issues.

However, Akulaleki hit-maker Dr Malinga saw a different Mdu when he watched the show. Thus, he decided to get him to play a part in his upcoming video. Notably, Malinga insists it’s not because Mdu topped the trends list, but because he saw some potentials in him.

“It is not only because he was trending. It was because so many people saw him as a charmer boy. My latest single Uyalivuselela is a love song and I thought he fitted the profile of a lover boy,'” Dr Malinga mentioned.

In a video posted on his Instagram page, Dr Malinga gave us a sneak peek behind the scenes of the video which started shooting this week at the Menlyn Boutique Hotel in Pretoria. The video is set to be released next month with Date My Family‘s Mdu playing a major role in the love story. Mdu’s part in the story is that of a young man romancing his girlfriend.

Apparently, Mdu did not allow the public criticism to weigh down on his personality.
