Beware the Green Mamba! – Mduduzi Green

On this day, 37 years ago, somewhere in KZN a baby Green Mamba was born. Little did his mother know at the time that her new son would become one of the deadliest competitors on a South African Bodybuilding stage. Mdu was aptly given the nickname “The Green Mamba” partly because, well, his surname is Green, but apart from being one of the most humble and down to earth guys I’ve ever worked with, if you decide to step on stage with him, just be aware that as calm and humble as he is, he can strike like the deadliest snake in the room – often leaving all his competitors for dead.

He is perfectly proportioned and has incredible genetics for bodybuilding. It’s very clear that Lusindiso has a potentially crazy sporting career ahead of him and we can’t wait to see how he chops down the competition on his way to the top.
