Vuyo Dabula’s Life Began In The Mid-1970s

His father was a railway worker while his mother a wonderful wife who was influential in his journey to greatness.


Dabula is the second-born out of four children. One of his brothers is called Siyolo Dabula, and he is a boxing enthusiast and a great lover of sports. Further details about his other siblings, including their names and occupations, are still under the radar.

The talented actor studied at the P.H Moeketsi Agricultural High School and the Johannesburg-based institution of higher learning, Wits Technikon. He graduated from the Agricultural High School in 1995, while his stint at Wits ended the following year, precisely in 1996.


Upon completing his studies, Vuyo lost interest in his course of study and decided to follow his passion by pursuing a career in acting. He majored in acting at the Cape Town-based Higher educational institution AFDA Cape Town and graduated after completing his studies.

He Began His Fitness and Bodybuilding Journey At An Early Age

Vuyo Dabula owes his success as a fitness icon to his parents and his childhood heroes. His father, though a violent man, was athletic while his mother was very good at jogging and maintaining a good diet that fosters fitness. The actor also credits international stars such as Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude van Damme, and Bruce Lee for his love for fitness.

The exact age Vuyo started his bodybuilding career is not known, but he once recounted that it was his skinny body that pushed him into fitness while growing up. According to him, his determination to overcome trolls and body shamers made him start running about 10-15km and embarking on high-intensity interval training (HIIT) as time moved on.

To warm-up, the actor used to invest an hour of his time on the treadmill. He mostly concentrates on his muscle group in the evening while his Saturdays and Sundays were dedicated to the lower intensity workouts. His calves, thighs, hamstrings, stomach, and arms were not also left out.

During the national lockdown, Vuyo Dabula devoted much of his time to growing his bodybuilding career through his impeccable fitness regimen and workout routine. Dabula also has a great interest in boxing, like his brother. It was his father who introduced them to the physical sports many years ago. Vuyo was among those who were invited to be a part of an exhibition match used to create awareness on boxing awards in South Africa alongside his Muvhango co-star, Gabriel ‘‘Chief” Temudzani.
