Maselesele was a highly talented and trained product of the Chiefs academy, who was promoted to the first team in 1998. He was always engaged with the club's fans, and his attacking style and direct style of play earned him the title of fan favorite. His work rate was fairly high, and he had skills and pace. This made him an indispensable member of the Amakhosi first team, and he was forced to leave his Chiefs after facing competition from the likes of Jabu Pule and Stanton Fredericks proved to be too much for him.
