One man, four wives: The new hit reality TV show

A reality TV show has restarted a debate over polygamy in South Africa.

Uthando Nes’thembu, which translates as “Love and Polygamy”, follows Musa Mseleku a 43-year-old property developer, along with his four wives and their 10 children.

BBC Trending says the series, which premiered on 19 May, is consistently a top trending topic on Twitter in South Africa.

Mr Mseleku told BBC Trending that they were motivated to take part to dispel the myth that polygamy oppresses women.

“I want to show men that you can be in a polygamous relationship and also be a considerate husband.”
