Except for three years as a youngster spent in Transkei, he was born and reared in Alexandria. He is also claimed to have developed his love of performing while at theater school.

Mdududzi is one of the few actors and celebrities whose marital life is doing well. Unlike most other celebrities or people in the limelight whose marriages crumble due to the pressures of publicity, Mduduzi is still married to his wife, Fatima Mabaso, whom he married a while back. The two met while they were both on the set of the second season of Zone 14, back in 2007. They got married a few years later and have been together ever since.

Mduduzi and his wife have four children; two of them are from Mduduzi’s previous marriage. He is not just a spouse but also a father to Ntokozo, Mpumi, Njabulo, and Zolile. He appears to be a happy family man who keeps a lot about himself hidden.

Away from the family drama, anyone who truly knows the actor understands that he is a talented actor who has grown his career to what it is today. He too agrees that, despite having been featured in numerous other productions throughout his career, the role of Suffocate the Gangster on Rhythm City is probably one that would follow him all his life.

‘It is interesting because I have performed in several shows while on Rhythm City and people tend to still refer to me as Suffocate. I guess it will always follow me but I am trying to take on roles that are different, to step away from that kind of character. I am growing as an actor and trying to explore different avenues.”

Apart from Rhythm City, which probably made him stand out like the star that he is, he is also featured in many other shows and films.

While nothing is known about the actor’s net worth, the reality is that he is likely to be wealthy. Based on the many parts he has played throughout the years, the former Yizo Yizo actor is unquestionably valuable.
