Will Musa Mseleku’s ‘fifth wife’ appear in new season of ‘Uthando Nesthembu’?

Since it aired in 2018, 'Uthando Nesthembu' has maintained high level of interest amongst the wider audience.


One of Mzansi Magic’s most popular shows, Uthando Nesthembu is returning for season six. 

Since it aired in 2018, the show has impressively maintained a high level of interest in viewers and audience ratings. 

Uthando Nesthembu follows Musa Mseleku and his wives as they navigate polygamous marriage, parenthood, culture and keeping the family together through the good and challenging times. 

The polygamist’s wives are MaCele (Busisiwe Mseleku), MaYeni (Nokukhanya Mseleku), Makhumalo (Thobile Mseleku) and MaNgwabe (Mbali Mseleku).

Season five ended with the unresolved issue of Musa’s attempt to get a fifth wife. There were reports that the businessman had chosen Faith Duma as wife number five.

Their relationship didn’t pan out as Mseleku hoped as the two reportedly broke up. Viewers and fans of Uthando Nesthembu will only expect that this will be covered in the new season. 

Duma also formed close bonds with her sister wives, and an appearance by her will only excite the audience.
