The popular South African polygamist was born in Mzumbe, Kwa-Madlala in 1975 to Joyce Mseleku Nomathemba (mother) and his father. 

Musa Mseleku, 45, has grown to become a big name. His grandmother is known as Phiwe Flo Dingile Mseleku. Both his mother and grandmother are late.

Private Life

Musa Mseleku wives

Musa is a proud husband and loving father to his wives and children. In 2002, he exchanged his marital vows with his first wife, MaCele. They enjoyed the “one man, one wife” marital life for five years.

He then wedded his second wife, MaYni and she was welcomed into his family. In 2009, Musa wedded his third wife, MaKhumalo, and the fourth, MaNgwabe.

Musa however describes his first wife as a woman of few words. From what he described of her, we could gather that she is a silent lady.

Though her husband further says that she is ‘open and speaks about her feelings’. 


The love Musa shared with his wives Macele, Mayeni, and Mangwabe made them children. He fathers two children outside of his marriage – Snenhlanhla and Mpiloenhle.

In 2018, it came to notice of many that Musa did have a fifth wife who passed away – Sindi Saule.

Musa lost his wife to a car accident some years back. Before she met her demise, she established a great relationship with some of her fellow housewives.

More especially, Sindi was in a great relationship with MaKhumalo. Though from the look of things, it seems that MaCele was not fond of her.

Even when her husband asked that she and other housewives pay a visit to her grave, MaCele was uninterested in talking about her.


Many ask of Musa Mseleku’s businesses and occupation that fetches him enough money to cater for his wives, children, and himself.

His rich lifestyle popped the question of what he does and the company he runs?

In the early stage of his career, he used to work as a journalist for Durban Youth Radio moving on to SBC News.

Musa is in charge of the rural areas in community development at Ugu District Municipality.

The Phiwe Ukufunda program was the name given to the foundation he came up with. It has its primary objective as catering for those in need.

He is a person that tries all within his possible best to provide his family with a lavish lifestyle.

Meeting his family’s needs and perhaps wants are on his priority list. Little wonder, he tries much to his best abilities to make life comfortable for them.
