Khanyi Mbau has made it clear that she is not friends with Bonang Matheba. Now the Young, Famous, and African star has taken another jab at the show’s newbie.
In a post-production interview, the actress throws shade at the media personality, whom she claims she does “not trust.”
Khanyi and the rest of the Netflix reality series cast have been trending on social media since season two kicked off on Friday, 19 May.
KHANYI MBAU: ‘I DONT TRUST BONANG‘
After giving Bonang a frosty welcome, and later claiming that she was B’s equal, Khanyi Mbau took another jab at her industry colleague.
In an interview filmed post-production of Young, Famous, and African, the socialite is asked what she thinks of the media mogul.
Khanyi said: “I don’t trust her because I’ve never worked with her in a group situation…she’s not someone I personally know”.
Khanyi then went on to insinuate that Bonang left because she was not the “star” of the show.
She said: “The Bonang that we all think we know would never do a project like this. This is not her style. And when she left, I expected it.
“It’s a group effort that allows everyone to shine through each other.
Khanyi also clapped back at claims she “ganged up” on Bonang. She added: “Nobody spoke to her. Maybe the silence was too loud”.
‘CUT AND PASTE’
Meanwhile, Khanyi Mbau has clapped back at producers for their editing of scenes and portraying her as a “villain.”
She shared in an Instagram post: “The editors are messy and very spicey.. [they] made me the villain AGAIN! Editing out pivotal moments that give clarity and deleting real scenes that shared the visuals of my real world, e.g., our children
She added: “The cuts and pastes of the scenes and the order is completely wrong and made to fit a certain narrative.
Khanyi claimed she was speaking out, as she “let things slide last season.”
She also added that her health had taken a dip during filming.
She continued: “Filming was incredibly hard. I watched the show with one eye open. It was painful. I saw the bad state I was in. I struggled with my speech most of the time and had zoned out 90% of the time”.
