Loyiso MacDonald talks about divorce's impact on his life.

The Queen actor Loyiso MacDonald has given fans a front-row seat into the private and most personal parts of his life, including his divorce and why he’s an atheist.
Loyiso rarely shares details about his personal life, which is why his fans were delighted to urge to understand him better during a recent interview.

Talking to MacG of Podcast and Chill on YouTube, the actor held nothing back about his life before the celebrity, including the very fact that he was abused when he was little which he’s a divorcee.

At 24, Loyiso married a musician named Luphiwo (formerly Mathunzi), whom he said was 22 at the time. He opened about how they broke up in 2016 once they were both still trying to work things out.

“I was just figuring things out about myself and that I think she was too … the 2 folks were really becoming adults together once I believe it. Who we ended up becoming, were two people — not who hated one another by the way — who were very different with very different priorities in life and that I think that won within the end,” he said.

Loyiso gave a vague answer about whether there was cheating involved once they parted but he admitted that he became an important drinker during that point.

When it came to his lack of belief in God, Loyiso said it had been simple for him, he just doesn’t believe anything about God is true.

“Why I’m an atheist is just because I’m not convinced that it’s true.”

This wasn’t the primary time the actor opened about his lack of belief in God. Back in 2019, after comments made within Timothy Omotoso’s rape trial, Loyiso engaged a tweep about his stance as an atheist. Loyiso reposted the quote and got into a discussion with followers who tried to point out him the “error” of his ways. That’s when he explained what being an atheist meant to him and why he chose that path.

“I don’t hate religion. I simply lack belief, that’s what atheism is. I’m an atheist so I do not believe in holy books. I’m unsure I understand the second a part of your question. We believe all kinds of things, remove the book altogether, and begin saying for yourself I say. It takes more work but is ultimately rewarding,” he said.
