The reality show focuses on the rich and famous African stars killing it in their respective industries. When it comes to Khanyi Mbau her claim to fame was being labeled a ‘gold digger’ because she had a baby with an older man called Mandla Mthembu.

After all that, her talents were unearthed and we got to see the talent she possesses as an actress, singer, TV host, and many more.

She always thought she would be a sugar baby and date older men, but now she is a cougar as she is dating her Zimbabwean millionaire boyfriend Kudzai Mushonga.

Introducing herself, she says trolls have given her that name, “I’m Khanyi Mbau, gold digger is what my trolls call me. Being a gold digger… I earned the name when I had a baby with my baby daddy.. And people said ‘it can’t be love. She’s definitely there for his money, she is a gold digger,’” she said.

Khanyi also had the opportunity to talk about her relationship with Kudzai Mushonga and how they wake up every morning.

“Every morning we wake up to the piano, because we feel like the alarm on your phone is quite violent. Who wants to wake up to violence? There is enough traffic there is enough traffic that you’re going to face, just wake up with a note.”

Khanyi is very vocal about the role of a man in a relationship she says men should provide, serve and protect by all means.

Which takes us back to her previous interview with Sizwe Dhlomo on his KayaFM Afternoon Drive show, where she clarified why she only dates rich men.

“The thing is with my relationships I treat them like how I buy a car or a house … you know what you want in the house. I know what my requirements are and I’m not going to back down.

“So many people confuse relationships and say, ‘Ah, I’m looking for love’ and two months down the relationship they’re looking for something else and that’s why they’ll never win because you haven’t made it clear what you want,” she told the radio presenter.

Not only are her relationship requirements a huge topic of conversation, her parenting skills were also slammed as she says she is not so strict when it comes to Khanukani.

“We allow Khanz to be herself, if she wants to try stuff, I mean anything… we let her try it. Cause we want to see who this person is,” she said.

The the topic of sex came about and Andile Ncube asked her where does she seek to draw the line. Her response is that she has not put an age restriction to losing ones virginity.
