30 years ago, Lynette Sis Mbau and Menzi Mcunu gave birth to a daughter and named her Khanyisile.
Eight years later, the proud parents celebrated their daughter’s first television gig when she made an appearance on a popular children programme, Galloby, on CCV channel – currently known as SABC (South African Broadcasting Corporate).
Now that the columnist and self-proclaimed ‘Queen of Bling’, Mbau, has her own daughter, Khanukani, she also know the feelings of witnessing her own flesh and blood in famous brands.
The 30-year-old mother-of-one and 2014 Strictly Come Dancing star – who has turned her life around after unsuccessful marriage of three years with former millionaire and Khanukani’s father, Mandla Mthembu – is celebrating her daughter’s first spotlight gig in the entertainment industry.
Khanukani, 8, is indeed following into her mother’s footsteps. The cute Khanyi’s mini-me is the face of Mayo – a flavoured drinking yogurt.
The proud mom posted a picture of her daughter on Twitter and Instagram alongside with a caption: Her first gig in the bag!!! Well done @mbau2 mommy is proud of you little one! My little light. #@mayohitsthespot.
With her mother’s guidance, there is no doubt that Khanukani is the star in the making.
Mbau is currently the host of Katch it with Khanyi on E- TV.
