Zimoja reports that trouble may be brewing in the love life of legendary actor Selllo Maake KaNcube and Pearl Mbewe as his family didn’t show up at her home to finalise her lobola.

A source close to the duo revealed to the publication that Mbewe’s family waited the whole day for Maake KaNcube’s family, who never arrived. The source adds that the actor is reconsidering his commitment to Mbewe.

“Sello still lives with his ex-wife, daughter, grandchildren and Pearl in the same house. It seems like he is dealing with a lot right now. While he loves Pearl, I think he’s struggling to balance his family and new marriage.”

“Despite nothing going on between him and his ex-wife, their shared history might be adding to the tension.”

The close friend also reveals that the couple had a traditional wedding ceremony in 2021, without the Maake KaNcube having completed paying the lobola as per African custom.

It is understood that Mbewe is a free spirit she did not mind doing things differently.

“They did not conform to the traditional norms of doing things, they were just excited about being together,’ says the source.

Sello Maake KaNcube’s partner Pearl Mbewe told the publication that she does not have to explain herself to anyone, when she was asked why they got had a wedding celebration without the Skeem Saam star paying all the lobola.

Mbewe also told Zimoja that her husband’s delegation arrived late for the lobola payment and were not allowed because according to her culture such things are supposed to be done early in the day.

“I won’t explain myself to anyone. We all do things differently Ntate Sello and his family did come but it was already after 5pm and according to our customs, we don’t accept lobola late.”


Mbewe confirmed to TshisaLIVE in October 2021 that she and Maake KaNcube are married and said she has all the women to thank who have been “chasing around” her and Sello’s relationship.

“I just want to thank all these women who were having problems with Sello and were against our relationship because they pushed me right into loving him forever. Since I laid eyes on Sello, I knew he was my husband from day one,” said Pearl.

Mbewe and Maake KaNcube were not available for comment at the time of publishing this article.
