Social media was abuzz as fellow celebrities and fans flooded MaMkhize’s feeds with warm birthday wishes as she turned a year older.

No doubt, the celebrated businesswoman, philanthropist, and reality star is trending against the backdrop of her birthday.


MaMkhize’s birthday posts have gained thousands of comments and reactions since they dropped on the internet. Taking it to Instagram stories, the multimillionaire shared a series of pre-birthday priceless moments. Mzansi was quick to give it a nod.

Against her birthday, Mzansi has been trying to connect the dots about her age. MaMkhize is an open book to many, and her reality show dives into her personal life. However, against the backdrop of her birthday, Mzansi has managed to connect the dots about her age.

Well, how old is MaMkhize? She was born on 6 April 1976 in Umbumbulu in KwaZulu-Natal. The 48-year-old multimillionaire grew up under the watch of her mother, Florence Mkhize, an ANC veteran and anti-apartheid activist.

After matriculating, she graduated with a degree in Accounting from ML Sultan Technikon, now known as Durban University of Technology. Many were convinced she was older than she looked. On the other hand, some credited her youthful looks to her fat pockets. No doubt MaMkhize’s age left many puzzled

Surprisingly, MaMkhize shares her birthday with Max Mqabi, who owns Max’s Lifestyle. She also penned a heartfelt post to her friend Max on Instagram.

Over the years, the multimillionaire has celebrated her birthday with starstudded all-white parties, which has since become her trademark, with Max’s Lifestyle being her playground. However, little is known about when she will be throwing her birthday party.


One cannot talk about MaMkhize without implicating her business portfolios. After several successful projects with the local municipality, MaMkhize established the Zikhulise Group.

The company has several subsidiaries, including Zikhulise Maintenance and Transport, Zikhulise Auto Recoveries and Inyanga Trading. Over the years, the company has scored several multimillion tenders, often thrusting it into the top trends.

She also owns the DStv Premier League franchise Royal AM, with her son Andile Mpisane as the chairman. She has made a considerable fortune from her small screen appearances, from cameo roles on some of the most-watched drama series to her reality show.

However, despite her success, she has had her fair share of drama. She was once convicted of R200 million fraud. In 2019, her fallout with Sbu Mpisane hogged headlines, but the two have been able to deal with the media in recent years.
