Catching up with Mzansi’s sexiest man, Zweli Dube


He’s a favourite amongst the ladies! We chat about Muvhango, being Mzansi’s sexiest, and what 2017 has in store for him.


Do you think Muvhango launched you?

Absolutely! Muvhango was my big break into the TV industry. I have done radio and TV before but Muvhango put me on another level in the industry and helped me build my brand. It gave me so much leeway into the world of television.

Are there any similarities between Zweli and Pule?

Yes Zweli and Pule are both smooth operators; very intelligent and smart guys; we’re both law abiding citizens and have great respect for the law and both Pule and Zweli have very big hearts. I bring those parts of myself into the character.

What did winning Mzansi’s sexiest 2017 mean to you?

It meant everything to me because the winner was voted for by the people. It was not biased or voted for by a panel but the people spoke and that means everything to get that kind of acknowledgment from the fans. When the people crown you Mzansi’s sexiest you can’t take it lightly. I appreciate that greatly.

How is the attention from the ladies?

The attention is phenomenal, gigantic and colossal! I appreciate all the love so much.

What are you working on besides acting?


2017 is a great year for me. Until announcements are made I can’t go into detail but this year I will be the face of a sexy sauve underwear range, which will be revealed soon. I will also be branching into presenting and acting in films. Look out for those announcements but it’s a big ground-breaking year for me. I will be releasing never seen before images soon, which will be the most risk-taking stylish images anyone has ever seen. This year the fans will get to know me even better. And of course I will continue exploring my other passions in fashion, fragrance, music and fitness.
