Since they have the same last name and look identical, South Africans have long questioned whether prominent clientele presenters and performers Lillian Dube and Desmond Dube are mother and son.

In an interview with Bridget Masinga on Kaya FM, comedian-actor Desmond Dube reportedly disclosed that the actress and his biological mother gave a speech at his wedding. This is according to Briefly.

“It was very interesting when I got married sixteen years ago, the MC called my mother to come up on stage and she stood up and then looked at Mam’ Lillian, grabbed her hand and both of them came to do the motherly speech together. But yes, she’s family now I can’t shake her off.”

The actor added in the interview that the former Soul City actress is his mentor and that he first got to know Mam’ Lillian Dube when she owned a talent agency that managed a number of artists in the township.

According to News365, the pair is frequently stopped at airports by fans who want to know if they are related.

“We’d be at the airport for example and then we’d have a group of people who work at the airport coming to us to say ‘tell us the truth, is this your son?’ And she would say ‘Errm, no I’m still waiting for paternity tests. And people would be perplexed by her response and insist that I am her son, and technically she is (my mother) because she’s been in my life even before I started in this industry. She kind of introduced me to the industry.”
