Sello Maake Ka-Ncube opens up about his five kids
SELLO Maake KaNcube is without a doubt one of Mzansi’s finest actors. His decadeslong career not only comes with a lot of accolades and respect, but it also puts unforgiving demands on his time. But Sello, who is a father of five, says he values quality time spent with his children more than the fame that’s synonymous with his name. He shares with Move! some of his most intimate moments as a father and highlights of his impressive career.
Sello had six children, with six different women. His eldest son, Lwazi, died in a car crash in 2011 at the age of 28. Sello shares a very intimate movement he shared with Lwazi when he was 19.
The star says it came to his attention that his son had four girlfriends. “I told him to learn from me because I had four children with four women at the time. I told him that life comes with a lot of lying and it is very addictive. I also asked him when he was younger if he wished I could spend more time with him and Lwazi’s eyes began to fill with tears,” he says.
Sello says he wasn’t aware of the big impact that the conversation had on Lwazi until he heard his son’s friends speak at his memorial service after he passed on. They said he always called them out for their promiscuous ways. “It was clear that my son had no intention of having kids out of wedlock,” says Sello.
The award-winning actor says he is always there for his children. “My father was never there for me and I wanted to break the cycle, but I realised the cycle that needs to be broken is that of having children everywhere as a man. I understand baby mama drama, it is nothing more than a woman who is hurting,” he says.
