Reality star Thobile “MaKhumalo” Mseleku, the third wife of polygamist Musa Mseleku says she is not promoting polygamy. 


Thobile “MaKhumalo” Mseleku is most popular for starring alongside her polygamist husband Musa Mseleku and her sister wives on uThando Nesthembu. She also made her debut on the Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) this season. This is where she grew in popularity for her feud with Jacob Zuma’s “baby mama” Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco.

MaKhumalo also has a talk show on SABC 1 titled Igumbi Lamakhosikazi. The reality star says she is excited about her career moves in the entertainment industry because she comes from humble beginnings.

“I’m growing, this is actually the start. I want to show people that you can start from zero and go to a hundred, that you can go from the rural areas to the suburbs, from zero to hero. That’s what I’m all about, teaching people that life is not determined by your background where you come from. I am from very humble beginnings but this is where I am today,” she said to Tshisa LIVE.

MaKhumalo says that you cannot separate her from polygamy because of her marriage but through her reality shows and talk shows… she is not promoting it.

“One thing about me is that you cannot separate MaKhumalo from polygamy because I’m married into polygamy. One of the things that made me be where I am is that I am not perpetuating it and I’m not promoting it, even though polygamy forms a big part of my life,” she said to the publication. 

She went on to say that her talk show was created because of the advice people were seeking from her.

“The show was born from the fact that people are writing to us on our DMs and our emails and asking for advice regarding relationships and social ills. We are all about trying to help people get back into the truth, living a life of truth so they can be at peace,” she continued.

“Being in a polygamous relationship can make you seem as if you’re a very strong person which makes people question how you do it, so if you can do it while you’re in a polygamous marriage,” she added.
