He was born and raised in Alexandra, except for the 3 years in his childhood that he spent in Transkei. He is also said to have discovered his acting passion while attending drama school.

Mduduzi is one of the few actors and celebraties whose marital life is doing well. Unlike, most other celebraties or people in the limelight whose marriages crumble due to the pressures of publicity, Mduduzi is still married to his wife Fatima Mabaso whom he married a while back. The two met while they were both on set of the second season of Zone 14, back in 2007. They got married a few years later and have been together ever since.

Mduduzi and his wife are blessed with four children, two of which are from Mduduzi's previous marriage. By the looks of things, he is a happy family man that keeps a lot about himself under wraps.

According to a Facebook post, Mduduzi was once accused of being an absent father by his ex-wife. Veronica Maseko, whom he had married in a customary marriage, was complaining that the actor has not seen his children since 2009 and that he has also not been paying for maintenance as he should.
