Nobody was more confused than Khanyi Mbau on Tuesday morning when she woke up to find her name trending because of a bizarre announcement about an engagement she had no idea had even happened.
Tweeps have been toying with celebrities on the TL recently and Khanyi was the latest victim of their baseless tweets. It seemed to be a game that “past midnight” Twitter users are into, where they create a rumour and run with it.
Poor Khanyi woke up so confused.
“Woke up to this #KhanyiMbauGetsEngaged trending! What’s going on? How am I engaged? To whom? To what?” she asked.
Khanyi never actually got a straight answer and even though the hashtag is topping the Twitter trends list, it is mainly because people are just as confused as Khanyi.
Media personality Khanyi Mbau has confirmed that she and long time boyfriend Tebogo Lerole have split again.
The pair first broke up in 2018 but decided to give love another try when they rekindled their romance in the hopes of working through their problems. The star announced the news in an Instagram post on Wednesday, saying their second attempt at love had led them even further apart.
The news of their break-up comes just months after the Kwela Tebza star wrote an open letter gushing over Khanyi and claiming she had “surpassed every test to become Mrs Lerole”.
In the now deleted post she wrote: “Bestie, a decade of adventure a lifetime of experience, a gift of true love and understanding, a lesson on being as human as possible, understanding, patience and a trip on self-love…you have played an important part to this a world of discovery… the 19th declared to be a very important day to my universe. Happy Birthday Love.”
Friends and fans, including Toke Mankiwa and Thulisile Phongolo, sent messages of support to Khanyi.

American artist August Alsina had the internet shaking to the core on Wednesday when he confirmed that he had an affair with actress Jada Pinkett Smith, claiming he had her husband’s blessing.
August dropped the bombshell during a recent interview with The Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee.
He claimed to have spoken to superstar Will Smith, Jada’s husband, about their relationship before it all started.
“I actually sat down with Will and had a conversation due to the transformation of their marriage to life partnership. He gave me his blessing,” he claimed.
August said he gave himself “fully” to the relationship for years.
“I totally gave myself to that relationship for years of my life, and I truly and really, really deeply love and have a ton of love for her. I devoted myself to it, I gave my full self to it — so much so to the point that I can die right now and be okay with knowing that I truly gave myself to somebody,” August said.
He admitted their split “broke him down” and left him feeling paralysed.
Jada addressed rumours that she was in an open marriage, telling HuffPost in 2013 that she had told Will that he could do whatever he wants as long as he can look at himself in the mirror without regret.
“I’ve always told Will: ‘You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay’. Because, at the end of the day, Will is his own man. I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be. That’s not for me to do for him. Or vice versa.”
August’s comments had social media users in a spaz, and soon Jada’s name topped the local Twitter trends list as Mzansi weighed in on her and Will’s relationship.
The cheerful and upbeat singer, Moonchild Sanelly has revealed she’s an emotional person when in a relationship and is known to sometimes tear up.
Taking to Twitter, Moonchild shared that she mostly cries in private when she’s in a relationship, but always puts on a brave face when around people.
“Saddest thing about me in relationships I cry in private a lot, in face value I’m hard AF! So no-one thinks anything makes me cry because they can and I don’t! Crying is a strength! Don’t ever undermine someone who can cry, unless it’s emotional blackmail! Respect tears.”
Though she may have an emotional element to her when in the name of ‘love’ earlier this year Moonchild shared a spicy message for her haters and everyone who has ever disrespected her.
This is not the first time Moonchild has demanded respect. In October she said she would continue to show off her booty whether people liked it or not.
This was after the dancing queen shared a video of her assets being covered with drinkingyoghurt.
AKA is clearly a man in love, and his lyrics say as much as well as his recently posted picture with him and his new flame on the gram.
“I’ve been thinking ’bout you every twenty-one days/ It’s kinda ironic twenty-one is your age/ I needed somebody who can give me my space” his lyrics go on Cross My Heart.
After realising one of AKA’s latest tracks might be a dedication to his 21-year-old love interest, people had so many questions they had to get off their chests. AKA has always rapped about the women in his life and has had his girlfriends feature as the leading ladies in his music videos before. Remember Queen B in The World Is Yours?
So AKA’s fans wanted to know if he would have his current girlfriend make an appearance in the music video for Cross My Heart.
“Not a chance. She’s very private. First non-celebrity I’ve dated since uhm 2008,” AKA said.
Looks like Supa Mega finally found the one who understands what he needs.
