Sello Maake kaNcube’s wife responds to GBV claims

Famous for his role as Archie Moroka on Generations, the Skeem Saam actor was at the Grahamstown event to perform in the stage play The Suit – which he had appeared in 30 years ago at the Market Theatre.

The source, who was also attending the event, said a screaming match between Sello and Pearl occured when the pair returned to their hotel.





“Pearl was screaming and swearing at Sello. The next morning, she appeared with a black eye and broken lips,” the source said.

“The situation is so bad that Sello left his wife behind while she was suffering from pain after the altercation. We don’t know the reason for the latest fight,” added the friend.

Another source claimed that the couple puts up a united front in public.

“That man feels trapped in that marriage because Pearl knows a lot about him and she has people who will always clean her image while portraying him as a villain,” added the source.

Responding to reports, a livid Pearl said: “Why is it that every time something is happening between my husband and I, there are sources who are telling you our problems.”

She further claimed that everything between her and Sello was good.

In April this year, Sunday World reported that the former Generations actor and his wife had separated and were headed for a divorce.

However, in Facebook posts days later, the couple – who got married in 2021– rubbished the reports.

In a lengthy post, Pearl gushed over Sello, whom she labelled a “good man”.

“You have been to me what the world will never even begin to understand.

“How I wish people could just and give you a break!

She continued: “In what may seem like me coming to your defense, the truth is being with you has elevated me to heights I never thought possible. I’m sending you love and strength in this trying time of our lives. I will forever love you and your spirit shall and will remain unshaken. YOU ARE A GOOD MAN. Father, son and a sibling. More than anything, you have been a beautiful and wonderful husband.”
