Born in 1980 in Venda, Gabriel Temudzani is an actor, MC and television presenter who is best known for his role in Muvhango as Chief Azwindini, a role he has played for over 20 years.

The actor is one of the few celebrities who prefer to keep their private lives private, and little is known about his personal life.

Who is Gabriel Temudzani’s wife?

Some sources believe that Gabriel Temudzani’s wife in real life is actress Maumela Mahuwa who is also his onscreen wife on SABC2’s soapie, Muvhango.

Gabriel Temudzani plays the role of Chief Azwindini Mukwevho while Maumela Mahuwa plays the role of Susan Mukwevho, his wife on Muvhango.

Because they have been playing a married couple on television for nearly two decades, some of their fans may believe they are a real-life couple. Although some of their fans wished that the onscreen couple's relationship could progress in real life, news that the two had something going on in real life surprised many.

In early April 2022, rumours emerged that Maumela and Gabriel Temudzani were getting married in real life.

According to the Daily Sun, the two talented actors had been secretly dating in real life and had finally decided to take things to the next level by exchanging wedding vows. The publication also revealed that sources close to Temudzani and Mahuwa had confirmed the story, and the couple was planning to marry in the coming months, and Muvhango publicist, Thanduxolo Jindela, even confirmed the story.

It later turned out that the story had been a hoax and just an April’s fool joke by the Muvhango actors and Daily Sun.

As it stands, it’s not clear if Gabriel Temudzani is currently married in real life or even if he is dating.

Until a couple of years ago, Gabriel Temudzani was a married man. His ex-wife is Refilwe Temudzani.

The two dated for several years before they finally got married in 2013. They exchanged their vows in a colourful ceremony that was aired on SABC1’s Selimathunzi.

The actor and Refilwe decided to end their marriage and file for divorce after seven years of marriage, and tabloids reported that Gabriel Temudzani had left his matrimonial home in Johannesburg.

Although the reason for their divorce has never been revealed, when news of their divorce broke in 2020, sources close to the former couple claimed that the two had decided to part ways due to marital problems beyond their control.

Gabriel Temudzani’s children

Even though his marital status is quite unclear, it’s no secret that Gabriel Temudzani is a father in real life, and a good one too it appears.

The actor often shares heartwarming photos and videos of himself with his son spending time together and creating memories.

Whether it's cycling or cooking, the father-son duo seem to have a beautiful bond that we all can’t get enough of.
