Mzansi, listen up! If you’ve ever had dreams of being in a polygamous marriage, Musa Mseleku has taken it upon himself to guide you on how you can achieve this, err… dream. On the latest episode of Uthando Nes’thembu, the proud polygamist, who’s married to four wives (and wants a fifth one, by the way), has announced that he’s been working hard during the lockdown period.
While the last couple of months have been rather difficult for some people, it seems Musa got a lot done. He was so inspired and decided to write not one, but two books. Get your pens and notebooks ready because both books are aimed at sharing some important lessons with readers.
“The first one is intended to educate men and women who want to be in a polygamous marriage,” Musa told his shocked family. He explained that he turned his situation into a book called Life and Polygamy. “It’s a manual of how they should live.” This man clearly believes in his lifestyle and well, when you’re an expert at something it’s only fair to share all that wisdom and knowledge with others, right?
The second book details how he made his first million. “I wrote about the beginning and how we didn’t have money. I explain how we started our first business – four businesses – that were all run by my wives. I explain how we saved all that money until it became a million rands,” he said.
Musa refuses to raise another man’s children
And, it looks like Musa might also teach people a thing or two about tradition. There might not be a book yet, but he’s certainly been dropping a few important gems in his conversations with his daughter, Sne. The father-daughter relationship has gotten better this season and he’s now ready to meet the father of her two children.
Musa has made it clear that he will not raise another man’s children and wants things to be done the right way. “You expect me to support both you and your children? It’s obvious that you have your own little family now… It is a family that I know nothing about,” he told Sne.
“I am wondering how come I don’t know the father of my daughter’s children. It’s not right … I want to meet the father of these children.” Being the traditional man that he is, Musa is now at a point where he wants to know what this man’s intentions are for his daughter. However, this might not happen as they’re no longer a couple. “We’re no longer together but we still talk. I can’t tell my father that we broke up because we might get back together.” Oh, Sne.
