Gugu Gumede Biography

Gugu Gumede is a South African actress born into a prominent family but quickly made a name for herself in the entertainment industry, independent of her parents.

Born in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, Gugu Gumede knew acting was her calling. But it wasn’t easy convincing her mother about it. Instead, her mother wanted her to study law. She gave in finally, however, allowing Gugu to study the course of her dreams.

Years have passed, and it is clear she doesn’t regret her decision to delve into the world of acting.


While some celebrities hide their age, the actress has no qualms to let the world know hers. Born in 1992, Gugu Gumede is currently 29 Years. She’ll be 30 in December.

Net Worth

Gugu Gumede is doing decently as an actress. Those who have been curious about her resources have been making guesses on what her net worth might be. But there’s no exact sum out there. That notwithstanding, she’s among the millionaire figure in the entertainment industry.


Contrary to what many out there believe, Gugu Gumede has no husband at the time of writing this. She has not ruled out settling down with a man, though, nor has she ruled out having children in the future.

In March 2020, however, a celebrity hairstylist had shared a picture of the two of them together, claiming that she’s his wife and that they have been married for four years. The post had a laughing emoji, so it’s hard to tell he was in earnest.


Gugu Gumede bought her first home in 2020. She had shared the news with her social media followers, letting them know she had signed the transfer papers for the property. In trustingly, she had also acquired a Range Rover Sport the same week.


In late 2020, the Uzalo actress bought a brand new Range Rover Sport. She was so pleased with the blessing, which followed another, her buying a house, that she shared pictures of the new ride on Instagram, thanking God for it.


A husband is not the only thing Gugu Gumede doesn’t have yet. She also doesn’t have a child. But, at any rate, she has not ruled out having kids in the future – with the man she says she’s waiting on God to reveal to her.


Gugu Gumede has a famous politician mother, Zanele kaMagwaza-Msibi. Zanele was a former member of parliament and one-time deputy minister of Science and Technology of South Africa in the cabinet of Jacob Zuma.


Simon Hulumeni Gumede is the name of Gugu Gumede’s father. The one-time parliamentarian of the KZN legislature died in 2017 in a car crash.


Gugu Gumede studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. Although she had wanted to spend all her life in the States, she eventually returned home to South Africa, landing a role in the flick Generations. In the flick, she played the role of Mandisa.

Her most famous role is in the SABC telenovella Uzalo. She played the role of Mamlambo, aloud mouth and highly opinionated lady. The role markedly contrasts with her person in real life. She’s the quiet type.
