Vuyo Dabula is a South African model, actor and bodybuilder. He is best known for his role as Shandu Magwaza in the Netflix crime drama, Queen Sono.

Vuyo Dabula is a renowned actor popular for his iniquitous thuggish character in Generations The Legacy as Kumkani “Gadaffi” Phakade. Conversely, Vuyo has an attention-grabbing life and his story is in actuality an adventurous one. Masses watch him every night, and they dutifully follow his feats on their TV sets. Vuyo Dabula Biography (Age, Wife, Children, Net worth) bares all.

Who is Vuyo Dabula’s wife?

The actor has a no kissing policy and it can only be because of his special somebody. Vuyo seems to have eyes for one lady and isn’t she lucky to have all of that scrumptiousness to herself. Although is he camera shy when it comes to flaunting his beautiful wife, he recently takes to Instagram to post his wife and captions the picture The Queen Herself. The posts include some pictures from their wedding. Fans could do none but drool.

The actor recently shared some pictures of his wife and also some snap of their marriage, but he took them down from Instagram soon after. Vuyo’s son goes by the name Kitso, and he is five years old now, but again the actor is not willing to share pictures of the kid. Just know the actor lives a happy life with his wife and son, and unlike other movie stars, he wants to keep it all on the down-low.

His movies and net-worth

Vuyo is ranked among the most popular South African celebrities on Celebs Trend Now with an estimated net worth of $100K-$1M. His primary source of income is from acting in soap opera, and he is ranked high among those in the Vuyo Dabula age group. Over the course of his TV and movies career, Vuyo has received several awards, but 2016 was perhaps his best year so far.

Does Vuyo Dabula have children?

His hard core character on TV has everyone thinking he is the same off-set. It is not the case with Vuyo and this just proves he is a good actor. The renowned actor is just a devoted and caring father to his son Kitso.

Kitso brings so much joy to me when I think that I’m responsible for raising such an intelligent boy. I want him to be confident in who he is and be humble because people who are confident and humble are often kind. He must also have self respect, as a lot of positive things spring from that,” Vuyo says.


Vuyo Dabula is 43 years old, and the actor is also a happily married man with the couple sharing a beautiful baby son. But when it comes to sharing his wife and son with the world, the actor is extremely protective of the privacy of his family. When asked about his wife and kids, there is always the same answer; he wants to protect the privacy of his child and his beautiful wife.


Vuyo Dabula studied at P.H Moeketsi Agricultural High and graduated in 1995, followed by Wits Technikon, where he graduated after a year in 1996. But what he studied in school was not something he was interested in making his career for the future; instead, the handsome hunk had his eyes set on acting, and he soon started his struggle to stardom in 2001.

Boxing history

As a boxing fanatic, Vuyo says that it was his dad who introduced him to this physical sport. And as a special tribute to him, in January, Vuyo took to the ring at the South African Boxing Awards during an exhibition match that was held in Durban. There, he faced off against Gabriel Temudzani, the Muvhango actor.


The no-kissing clause was both “a spiritual and religious thing” and he believed it was the right choice. Roles in Zone 14 and Isidingo followed before he decided to abandon his stance. It was becoming increasingly difficult for the Isidingo scriptwriters to develop storylines without giving his character, lawyer Titus Lesenya, a love interest – and when he joined the Generations cast he told his agent if kissing was required, he would pucker up.

My father was pretty much like Tau,” Vuyo tells DRUM. “He was a great guy but he had his demons. There are things I hold in my heart – my burdens – that helped me play the role. I used my personal troubles as tools to play my character.”

Vuyo, the second-born of four children, loved his father but he “saw him inflict a great deal of violence on people”. He was a complex man, he adds. “When I remember my relationship with my father I recall a bitter-yet-sweet place. “I saw him cook the best African meal. But I also saw him being violent towards others.”

In the face of danger his father was fearless – just like Tau, Vuyo says.

He recounts an incident in his childhood that involved his dad. In his neighbourhood there were “many mentally disturbed people”.
