Khanyi Mbau On Why She’s Bleaching Her Skin

Published

on

“90% of my skin is cosmetic now”, revealed Khanyi Mbau in a recent interview with eNCA.

The 33 year old media personality, who’s been the subject of much public furore over a new wave of new skin lightening claims, sat down with Thembekile Mrototo to clear the air.

While Mbau’s skin tone has transformed through the years, this is the first time the actress took the time to attend to the most pressing questions about her skin treatments.



In the interview, Khanyi Mbau does admit to lightening her skin through various products and treatment, but shot down perceptions that she’s bleaching her skin for access to new social capital that comes attached to lighter skin. “This was a personal choice. Not because it was something that is needed for the industry, it’s something that I preferred.

For her, it all comes down to two things. One, it’s a “maintenance issue”. Khanyi said she hates sitting for too long in the make up room, an inconvenience which takes up much time.

“I realised that once my skin is fairer, then I need to use less make up.”

Khanyi Mbau also revealed that she spends and average of R10 000 on IV skin lightening procedures, prescribed vitamins and other products.

The interview comes just days after Pearl Thusi and Sho Madjozi were forced to weigh in on their own light skin privilege in a wake of a heated colourism debate on social media.

DJ Fresh Denies Sexual Assault Claims

He’s taking legal action.

Published

on

DJ Fresh has denied various sexual assault claims that surfaced recently on social media.

Real name Thato Sikwane, the 46 year old radio presenter became a subject of much furore following his appearance in the list of alleged perpetrators being implicated by the #AmINext Twitter movement, which seeks to expose and shame alleged perpetrators of gender based violence against women.

And while these social media accounts have named several South African male celebrities, Dj Fresh has distanced himself.

“The current allegations are false and without basis”, he expressed in a statement shared through his social media platforms. Adding; “They have been made and published, recklessly”.

“The fight against Gender Based Violence is one of the biggest battles in our countermand it saddens me that the focus is being shifted from the real issues and perpetrators”, he said.

DJ Fresh went also revealed that he is seeking legal counsel following the damning allegations made by a well known ex girlfriend, who is believed by some to have directed her Twitter posts about her an abusive “famous ex” to the popular broadcaster.

The 947 presenter shot down the claims, dismissing them as being “without merit”.

“I have, in the past, chosen to ignore this person, but due to the implications of the most recent statements,  the matter has been referred to my attorneys to handle.

Burna Boy Vows To Never Come To South Africa

Burna Boy is livid!

Not only did Burna Boy pull out from of his highly anticipated performance at this year’s Afropunk, but he also has no intention of ever setting foot in South Africa. Ever.

The African Giant on Tuesday ended his silence on the ongoing xenophobic violence in the country, lambasting the South Africa government for its failure to deal effectively with the spate of violence against foreign nationals and their property.

In a series of tweets that also slammed his former collaborator AKA over his remarks, the singer detailed his enduring strife with the country.

“I have not set foot in SA since 2017”, he revealed, “And I will NOT EVER go to South Africa again for any reason until the SOUTH AFRICAN government wakes the fuck up and really performs A miracle because I don’t know how they can even possibly fix this.” (Sic)

Burna Boy, who’s had decent commercial success in the country, also went on to mention his own personal experience with xenophobia.

Burna Boy echoes the sentiments by celebrities, both from South Africa and Nigeria, who have spoken out against xenophobic violence in South Africa. The likes of Wizkid, Davido, Jidenna and others have spoken out against the attacks.

Babes Wodumo’s Controversial Account Is Still Hacked

Published

on

Babes Wodumo has apparently not been able to regain her account from the hacker who used her account to toss nasty jibes at Lady Zamar last month.

So she has no idea who took to Twitter to fire out more insults at Burna Boy, while also taking the liberty to vent xenophobic spleen amid the violence targeting small businesses and establishments owned by foreign nationals.

“Nidayida ama drugs zinja!!!” (sic) “Hambani!!!”, which translates to “You dogs are selling drugs. Leave!”

The attack on Burna Boy came  after he ended his silence with a series of explosive tweets.

The Giant of Africa hitmaker slammed AKA over freshly revived old tweets and the South African government over the recent spate of homophobic violence.

He has also pulled out from his highly anticipated performance at this year’s Afropunk in a boycott against the country that has been joined by Tiwa Savage, who’s also cancelled her performance at the looming 2019 DStv Delicious Food Festival.

Babes Wodumo took to his Instagram to distance herself from the tweets, asking her fans to help her report the account.
