A South African businessman has opened his home for television viewers to see how polygamy works in real life.
Musa Mseleku says he is on a mission to change the face of polygamy. TV cameras will follow his life and that of his four wives and children.Mseleku’s new reality show titled Uthando neSthembu premieres on Mzansi Magic tonight where viewers will get to know his large and colourful family.
His family consists of Mamkhulu (first wife), MaYeni (second wife), MaKhumalo (third wife), MaNgwabe (fourth wife) and their 10 children.
Speaking to Sowetan yesterday, Mseleku, 42, who is into social investment projects and logistics, said he hoped that the show would lift the lid on polygamy and erase some stereotypes.
“We have made a huge sacrifice as a family to allow cameras into our home but we are hoping that this will contribute to nation building by opening our doors and lives in the hope that viewers will get to witness our lifestyle,” he said.
The show is filmed at the Mselekus’ rural homestead in kwaMadlala, KwaZulu-Natal’s south coast.
