Who is Gabisile Tshabalala’s husband? That’s one question fans have been asking for as long as we can remember. The actress herself has not helped matters by being mum on the subject.

Her husband is said to be a private person, and since Gabisile Tshabalala has not proffered details about him, he remains a mysterious figure to her fans. Anyway, the important thing is that she’s happy in her relationship.


Not much is available about Gabisile Tshabalala’s parents. Her parents were thought to have separated when she was young and she was therefore raised by her grandparents.

Her mother had remarried thereafter. The new man in her life, Gabisile Tshabalala’s stepdad, played the role that her biological father didn’t.

According to reports, Gabisile Tshabalala was shy at the outset, but her stepdad helped build her self-confidence – something that has contributed to the person she is and appreciates.

Boxing Career

Gabisile Tshabalala might be famous as an actress and presenter right now, but earlier in her life, she was a professional boxer who had competed at the international level.

At the time her boxing career took root, she was, in her own words, “living in a shack” with her four siblings and grandparents. Around that period, also, especially when she faced the Zambian Catherine Phiri, she nursed a dream of using the money earned from her fight to build a decent house for her grandparents.

Her story has since changed, and she’s more comfortable than she was previously.
