ACTOR Mutodi Neshehe (42), best known for his portrayal of
Ndalamo Mukwevho on Muvhango and Zola Radebe on Generations – The Legacy, has
denied claims that he is having an affair with two young women. The actor
vehemently denied even knowing them personally.
The Soweto-born actor tells Move! that he is not cheating on
his American wife, Leslee. The couple has been married for more than 13 years and
they have two daughters. A Sunday newspaper reported that Mutodi was two-timing
his wife. The report claims that late last year Leslee discovered that her
husband was allegedly cheating on her and exchanging sexually suggestive
messages with not only one young lover, but two. It goes on to claim that when
Leslee found sexual messages between her husband and one of his young lovers,
she got the shock of her life. When Move! spoke to Mutodi, he was only aware of
one young woman. Even though he denies cheating on his wife saying, “Nothing of
that sort happened”. He points out that it’s the young lady that was making advances
on to him. “I have never met her ever. She was pursuing me,” he sternly
When asked about the state of his marriage, the Harvest
actor is reluctant about going into details even though he admitted in an
interview with a weekly magazine that there was trouble in paradise. He was quoted as saying, “I feel like I’m
the only one fighting, but she’s giving up. It’s like this isn’t the person I
married.” When we question him about what he said in that interview, he simply
says, “People outgrow each other and I won’t go into details.” His star as an
actor may be soaring, but his marriage seems to be sinking. Be that as it may,
he has learnt that one should never lose themselves when they tie the knot.
“You need to remember who you are,” he says.
Despite what is happening in his life right now, the father
of two says his daughters are his most precious treasure. “They are the most
precious people in my life,” he says, adding being a father is one of the best
things to ever happen to him. “You don’t have to have all the riches, but you
just have to be there. I enjoy being with them. When I come home, they run up
to me with excitement and that’s all I need,” he shares.
