Mseleku's new reality show titled Uthando ne Sthembu premieres on Mzansi Magic tonight where viewers will get to know his large and colourful family.
His family consists of Mamkhulu (first wife), Ma Yeni (second wife), Ma Khumalo (third wife), Ma Ngwabe (fourth wife) and their 10 children.
This was after mischievous people spread rumours that Masakona was the product of an adulterous affair and an illegal congress between the two lovebirds.

On reflection, I think that I could probably tolerate it as well. But I also think that, despite that attitude of potential reluctant acceptance (which is, I think, widespread among members), reinstituting polygamy would never work.

She points out that it is the literalism Salafi Muslims who advocate polygamy today.
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 kwa Madlala, Kwa Zulu-Natal's south coast.If there are tensions it will not work at all."He added that his family was feeling "a bit nervous but excited" ahead of the premiere of the show tonight.
