Meet Muvhango’s Mr Suave Themba Nofemele

We’re looking forward to getting a close-up of that meticulously trimmed beard and hearing that sincere voice with which he schmoozes his onscreen girl, Thandaza Buthelezi.

But there’s so much more we’re curious about when it comes to talented actor Themba Nofemele. Top of our list is finding out who the special lady in his life is as he’s been linked to gorgeous actress Bubu Mazibuko.

And, of course, the sad fact that he’s never met his toddler son. “Gee that’s a tall order,” says Themba, the man behind Muvhango’s charming and worldly Ranthumeng.

Sitting in the lobby of the SunSquare Montecasino Hotel in Fourways, our interview is interrupted by comedian Barry Hilton, famous for the Savanna TV ads.

Themba and Barry chat and laugh for a while. “We worked together on the movie Finding Lenny,” Themba explains as Barry leaves.

“He’s such a lovely guy!” The Muvhango heartthrob then continues where we left off and is an open book.

He tells us he’s single again after breaking up with actress Bubu Mazibuko. “It wasn’t a nasty break-up,” he says. “We still get along and have huge respect for one another. I think she’s an amazing woman and she’ll always have a special place in my heart.”
