From being a pastor to Big Brother Mzansi housemate: The story of Themba Mabaso

No doubt Themba Mabaso has fast become Mzansi’s favourite when it comes to Big Brother Mzansi. He has the plug and the bling too. We can all agree he knows well how to keep his cool and play his cards well. Mzansi has fast credited him as the leader of the ghost nation due to his tattoos and savage character.

Back home, in Alex, Themba is a celebrated tattooist. Themba leads the pole position for the R2 million jackpot from the Big Brother competition. However, Mzansi has dived into his private life in the mix of things. Of interest is that the 31-year-old was raised by his grandmother, who happens to be Merriam Mabaso.

After matriculating at Realogile High School, the bubbly media personality furnished his craze for marketing at CJC Parktown. He felt he had a calling in his second year and decided to pursue his pastoral carer. During that time, he was a member of the Universal Church.

It comes as a shocker that Themba used to be a man of oath for at least seven years before calling it quits. Sources have it that he called it quits because of church politics that complicated his calling. Soon after, calling it quits the bubbly personality we all love to hate, then married his wife, Nqobile Khuzwayo. A few months down the line, they had their firstborn in the mix of things. Currently, he is a father of two.

We can all agree that tattoos have fast become his signature, and we tend to wonder how he got all that ink, yet he was a man of oath. After leaving the church, the rumour mill has it that he then tattooed his boy’s name Mpendulo. Since then, he has been getting tattoos.

Despite being raised in a Christian family, he was adamant about adding more. After discovering his craze for tattoos, he was then introduced to the ink world by his friend Joel Moerane.

In 2019 the two purchased a Wendy’s house to expand their tattoo business. However, in the mix of things, everything turned south when their workplace was reduced to ashes with fire in 2020. Even up to now, the cause of the fire is still unknown.
