Actor Sello Maake loses more than his wife

Sello Maake kaNcube has lost a deal with an insurance company

Hardly a week after the news that he has filed for divorce from his wife of three years, actor Sello Maake Ka Ncube is now losing money. The renowned actor is currently facing a tough time as his personal and professional lives continue to crumble. It has since emerged that his endorsement deals are also falling apart.


ZiMoja can exclusively reveal that the seasoned actor has been dropped by Budget Insurance as their brand ambassador. A source close to the actor has confirmed that the deal was worth millions, which allowed Maake kaNcube to afford a lavish lifestyle. Maake kaNcube is not just losing his endorsement deal; he is also losing his TV role in the popular telenovela, Championships on Mzansi Magic. A source in the production team has revealed that Maake kaNcube's character, Washington, will be killed off due to the actor not doing justice to the role. "He will still get paid until the end of the season but he is out," the source said.


Last year, ZiMoja reported that though the couple married in a traditional wedding in 2021, Maake kaNcube did not finish paying lobola. According to a source, Pearl left her matrimonial home to her family home in Soweto to prepare for the lobola ceremony but Maake-Ka Ncube's family never arrived. At the time, Pearl said she would not explain herself to anyone when asked if lobola was completely paid for her. "We all do things differently, Ntate Sello and his family did come but it was already after 5pm and according to our customs, we don't accept lobola late," she added. Maake kaNcube dropped the phone when asked for comment.
