MaCele Mseleku (born 1977) is a 46 year-old South African reality television personality, businesswoman, and radio and television broadcaster also known as Musa Mseleku’s first wife whom she has 3 kids for.
MaCele became well-known as a result of her marriage to Musa and their reality TV program, Uthando Nesthembu. She appears on the show with her husband, co-wives, and kids, and is frequently referred to as the “Queen Mother” by her admirers and viewers.
How Old is MaCele Mseleku?
The general public is unaware of Macele’s precise birthdate. However, she is 46 years old as she was born in 1977 in KwaMadlala, KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa. Despite being known as Mamkhulu, the businesswoman’s real name is MaCele Mseleku.
There is presently no information available regarding her origin, family relatives, family history, upbringing, education, and life before stardom.
She Became Musa Mseleku’s First Wife in 2002
MaCele and her husband’s paths crossed for the first time in the year 2000 at a supermarket. At the time they met and subsequently started dating, Musa was already dating another MaMyeni (who eventually became his second wife).
Musa went ahead to marry MaCele first because MaMyeni was yet to get her parents’ approval for her to marry Musa. MaCele and her dear husband tied the knot in 2002 and solidified their marriage via a traditional marriage in 2019.
The occasion took place at her father’s compound in KwaMadlala in the presence of her family members and about 300 guests including notable individuals in the country. MaCele and Musa have remained husband and wife for over two decades and counting.
Her Marriage to Musa and their Reality TV show are mostly Responsible for her Notoriety
MaCele owes her rise to prominence first to her marriage to Musa, one of the wealthiest authors and TV personalities in South Africa. Musa was already in the public eye before their marriage and not long after their marriage, his popularity started rubbing off on her.
MaCele’s popularity skyrocketed when she became a regular face on the reality TV show, Uthando Nes’thembu. The show documents the life of her polygamist husband Mseleku, his children, and other wives MaYeni, MaKhumalo, and MaNgwabe.
The show runs for 24 minutes on Magic Mzansi and has been airing since May 19th, 2017. Macele was characterized as a quiet woman and a person of few words on the program. Her husband also attested to the fact that she is always honest and expresses her emotions when there is something to bring up.
Due to her poised demeanor, the businesswoman is frequently referred to as Queen Mother and is held in great regard. She is an important figure on the show as she ensures the general well-being of her family and contributes to the smooth running of the show.
MaCele and her co-wife MaKhumalo also have a relationship advice show, Ezomshado.
MaCele, on her own part, believes that God knows why he allowed her to marry a polygamist. Being a Christian, she said polygamy is against her belief but has accepted her destiny. She and her co-wives kicked against Musa marrying a fifth wife.
MaCele Mseleku’s Children’s Names
MaCele Mseleku shares three kids with her husband and their names are Lwandle Mseleku, Abongwe Mseleku, and Owami Mseleku. Their first offspring was born in 2003 while the second and third ones arrived in 2005 and 2012 respectively.
Unfortunately, further information about MaCele’s children is not open to public scrutiny. Being offsprings of one of the wealthiest polygamists in South Africa, it is believed that they are responsibly raised and also get some of the most outrageous and expensive gifts out there from their parents.
Besides MaCele’s three biological children, she is also raising Musa’s daughter from a failed marriage. Her name is Snehlanhla Mseleku and she was born in 1996. The identity of her biological mother is not public knowledge.
MaCele and her stepdaughter share an amazing mother-relationship as seen on their family reality TV. Her love for Snehlanhla earned so much love and respect from viewers of the reality TV show, Uthando Nesthembu.
