Orlando Pirates shot-stopper Melusi Buthelezi has won big since his top-flight debut. His flair has undoubtedly earned him a cap for Bafana Bafana and made him part of the Orland Pirates roster.



Despite several stars keeping their salaries under wraps, Melusi Buthelezi seems to be earning big money and spending thousands, if not millions, on his immediate family.

The Orlando Pirates star is trending after seemingly revealing that he is building a lush rural mansion. Photos and videos of the mansion have been making rounds on social media after being posted.


Mzansi quickly connected the dots about his rural mansion, which he is building in Nqutu. In one of the viral photos, Buthelezi stood in front of the house, which is now at roof level. Judging from viral videos and photos, it boasts modern architectural designs.

Taking it to Instagram Stories, Melusi Buthelezi shared a sneak peek of the house, and Mzansi quickly gave it a nod. The video has gained thousands of comments and reactions since it dropped on Instagram.

Besides having a sneak peek of his house under construction, Mzansi also had a glimpse of one of the 26-year-old’s flashiest cars. Like those before him, Melusi Buthelezi has a soft spot for some of the sleekiest rides and has an Audi SQ5 to show for it.

Surprisingly, the car’s base price tag is R650 000 at several dealerships nationwide. However, prices often depend on trims, extra features, and customisations. Unconfirmed reports suggest he owns a Toyota Hilux bakkie, a VW Golf, and a sleek BMW.


Melusi Buthelezi started his senior career with the National First Division side Jomo Cosmos before moving to TS Galaxy in 2020. In 2022, he made his international debut, coming from the bench while playing against Sierra Leone.

However, his impressive form with TS Galaxy saw many teams fighting for his signature. Buthelezi kept ten clean sheets in the 21 games he played for the club.

The star confirmed his exit from TS Galaxy at the end of the 2022/2023 season. “I will be forever grateful for the opportunity this team gave me,” Buthelezi posted on social media a few hours after TS Galaxy wrapped up their season.

However, he made eight clean sheets in his first ten appearances for the Soweto giants. Melusi Buthelezi has undoubtedly been winning big with Orlando Pirates and has capped his career with some silverware.
