The love song that Lim­popo gospel artist and Skeem Saam ac­tor Mphoza Masha­bela has been singing for his wife of 23 years has reached its epi­logue.

And the end was not with­out drama for Masha­bela as his wife Tony Masha­bela dumped him via What­sApp and va­cated their mat­ri­mo­nial home in Mokopane, Lim­popo.

Masha­bela’s teacher wife told Sun­day World that the artist cheated on her with more than 30 con­cu­bines and that she could not take it any­more.

She also ac­cused the chair­per­son of the Lim­popo Artist Move­ment of be­ing a lazy hus­band who failed to do the sim­plest of du­ties at home.

“He is un­em­ployed, but every time I re­turn home from school I must change faulty light bulbs and also do the gar­den.

“What kind of a man is that? He even bad-mouths me in pub­lic,” she said.

So se­ri­ous is the ac­ri­mony that Masha­bela has asked the po­lice to in­ter­vene.

This af­ter Tony al­legedly ripped the stick­ers of his driv­ing school off their car and burnt them.

She was also al­legedly with­hold­ing the keys to their minibus.

The two were also gird­ing their loins to fight for the di­vi­sion of their es­tate as Tony had al­legedly or­dered him to va­cate their mat­ri­mo­nial home.

The ex­plo­sive tit­bits were re­vealed by a rel­a­tive who is close to the war­ring cou­ple.

Masha­bela con­firmed that his wife has dumped him via a What­sApp mes­sage.

“I have never thought one day I would be a vic­tim of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and be help­less. It’s so painful and hurt­ful that you ar­rive at home as a man and be dis­re­spected by your wife.

“She told me that she no longer loves me but I’m stuck in one place be­cause since we sep­a­rated she has not filed for divorce to com­plete the choice she made to live a new life with­out me.

“But speak to my lawyer about this mat­ter, I can’t say more than what I just said.”

His lawyer Adv Jerry Koma said Masha­bela’s wife threat­ened to file for divorce in Oc­to­ber. “We have not re­ceived the papers, so we took a de­ci­sion to wait un­til the end of this month for her to do so and if she doesn’t, then we will ini­ti­ate the divorce process,” he said.

The wife poured wa­ter on al­le­ga­tions against her per­tain­ing to the cars, say­ing they were both her ve­hi­cles.

A fam­ily rel­a­tive who didn’t want to be iden­ti­fied for fear of vic­tim­i­sa­tion, said their mar­riage started fal­ter­ing in Novem­ber last year when his wife started ac­cus­ing him of in­fi­delity. “She claims that she found some SMSes in his phone which sug­gest that he was cheat­ing,” said the rel­a­tive.

The rel­a­tive said Masha­bela’s wife dumped his clothes in the streets and or­dered him to leave their house.

“But he didn’t, hop­ing that things will be okay. The two have been sleep­ing in two sep­a­rate rooms since then.

“What com­pounds their prob­lem is that Mphoza also com­plains that his wife is never home and that she of­ten un­der­takes trips to far away places and spend sev­eral days with­out his con­sent,” said the rel­a­tive.

The rel­a­tive also said what broke the camel’s back was when she or­dered him to leave their house last Fri­day. The rel­a­tive said Masha­bela went to Mah­wel­ereng po­lice sta­tion to open a case against her but the po­lice re­ferred him to so­cial work­ers to re­solve the mat­ter.
