Getting to know Muvhango KK (MacDonald Ndou) in Real life

MacDonald Ndou has become one of the most popular faces on TV. Known for his role on the popular SA drama series, Muvhango, the actor has won hearts with his role-interpreting skills and how much life he brings into the character that he portrays. Over the years, he has risen to become one of the respected figures in the South African movie industry and is constantly being discussed by fans of the popular TV show.

Since he started making waves as an actor, MacDonald Ndou has garnered a lot of fans who appreciate his work. However, despite his fame, MacDonald Ndou is one person who loves to keep his private affairs private and has left fans guessing about some aspects of his life, including who his wife really is.

MacDonald Ndou, whose full name is MacDonald Tshifhiwa Ndou, was born on the 14th day of March 1984. The actor was born in Vuwani, a town in Vhembe District Municipality in the Limpopo province of South Africa. 

MacDonald Ndou is a proud Venda man. It is noteworthy that the actor is from the Venda tribe, a Bantu-speaking people who inhabited the region of South Africa that was known as the Republic of Venda from 1979 to 1994. However, that area is now a part of the Limpopo province.

Even though he is very quiet when it comes to talking about his private life, MacDonald is quite vocal when it comes to talking about his people, culture, and heritage. In fact, he is widely known to be among the few South African actors who actually love and pay homage to their traditions and homeland whenever they get the chance. He has often been on record to have encouraged South African parents to focus on teaching their kids their native language and not just focus on the English language.

MacDonald Ndou has assumed the role of a philanthropist in his community. In his quest to connect more with the people in the Vuwani community where he was born, the actor has become quite active, frequently engaging people on the importance of upholding their tradition and motivating pupils to stay focused. He is also known to hand out stationery to young people every now and then as a way of encouraging them to read and write.

Ndou is known today to be a very popular actor who has won several hearts with his acting talent. However, this has not always been the case with the Venda man. In fact, before fame came calling, he was struggling financially and struggled to make ends meet during that period.

In an interview, Ndou revealed that he once had to work as a griller at Wimpy just to make ends meet. However, even at that time, he still had dreams of working as a full-time actor someday. Acting fascinated him and he saw himself as someone who would do really well in the industry

With the desire to become an actor still burning hot in him, MacDonald Ndou decided to go to school and study acting. He then enrolled at the University of Venda where he trained to be an actor. This period of his life opened his eyes some more to the wonders of acting and he was even more determined to make things work as an actor.

Ndou also proceeded to study stage performance at the State Theatre. This move was made because he not only wanted to act in movies and TV series but also to star in stage performances in theatres.

Before he became one of the popular faces on TV in South Africa, MacDonald Ndou started out his acting career as a stage performer in the theatre. The actor acted in several stage productions and wowed the audience with his acting skills. Some of the dramas he participated in at the time include Distance Past, a play that was staged at the State Theatre in Pretoria.

The actor also acted in Joburg’s Market Theatre with Humbulani Tsharani, who, interestingly also plays Mulimisi in Muvhango today. MacDonald was so good at stage performance that he actually won the Best Actor award at the Sibikwa Drama Festival together with Humbulani.

In addition to acting on stage, MacDonald Ndou also did radio dramas on Phalaphala FM, a radio station operating through SABC.

After appearing in different stage productions across South Africa, MacDonald Ndou finally made his cross-over to TV when he was cast to star in Muvhango, one of South Africa’s most popular TV series. He started appearing on the series in 2008 when he was about 24 years old.

The Muvhango series introduced MacDonald Ndou to the larger South African public who were already obsessed with the Muvhango show at the time. Ndou was cast to play the main role of Khakhathi Mulaudzi also known as “KK” in the series and he quickly got fans of the show hooked to his character right away. The character KK is a colorful villain who is notorious for wearing shiny suits all over the place. KK is haughty, cunning and never apologizes even when he is wrong. He is seen as a cheater and a dubious man who uses people to achieve his own selfish desires. But he is also a very enjoyable character to watch because of his manipulations and all the intrigues he brings to the show. So, even though he is a villain who is really proud and arrogant, MacDonald Ndou’s character, KK, is also loved by the Muvhango-viewing public.

In fact, MacDonald Ndou has become one of the most popular figures on Muvhango and many people claim he is one of the reasons why the show is still so relevant today, more than two decades after it first premiered. Having begun starring in the series in 2008, Ndou has now been a part of the show for more than a decade and is respected for the part he has played in it. He is widely considered to be the life of the show and that nearly everything revolves around him and his cunning moves. 

Is MacDonald the same as KK in real life??

No he is nothing like the character he portrays on TV. According to him, he is actually the opposite of KK because he is very calm in real life and also not abusive at all. He also revealed that he is very reserved and is just a regular guy who loves wearing jeans, takkies, and T-shirts, unlike his character who is often clad in shiny suits.

Ndou also claimed that he is so quiet and reserved that he can walk into a room and no one will even notice that he is there. He went on to explain that he really hates it when fans confuse his real self with the personality that he portrays on television and that they must realize it is all make-belief. However, he also revealed that he does love meeting the fans whenever he gets the chance.

It is noteworthy that fans have come to believe that MacDonald Ndou’s real life is the same as the character he portrays on TV mainly because of how believable he portrays the role.

In a move to further prove to fans that he is not in any way like the character he plays on TV, MacDonald Ndou has deliberately filled his Instagram page with photos showing him dressed in fashionable suits and other apparel. Take note that the KK character on Muvhango is known to wear shiny shirts and suits which are actually out of date and considered old-fashioned. In fact, KK is widely considered by many Muvhango fans to be TV’s worst dresser.

Also, Ndou himself has often spoken about the fact that he actually hates the shiny, oldfashioned suits he is made to wear on Muvhango and that he can’t wait to stop wearing them. So, the actor has made it his duty to prove he can actually be fashionable in real life and let fans know the difference between his onscreen fashion sense and the real way he likes to dress.

MacDonald Ndou is a happily married man at the moment. The popular actor is married to a truly gorgeous woman who is only known as Mrs. Ndou. The actor, who is very secretive with his private life, has made sure his woman is kept out of the spotlight as much as possible. The couple got married in 2008.

The marriage between MacDonald Ndou and his beautiful wife has been fruitful as the couple has since welcomed a son in December 2019.
