Khanyi Mbau is known for her light complexion and use of skin lighteners to maintain her "look" and she has at tunes come under fire for not embracing her "blackness".
However, Kanyi has come out in support and identifies as a "Brown Skin Girl" and used Beyonce's song as a segue for the shoutout.
Tweeps have in the past taken aim at Pearl Thusi who also liked the song and tweeps said that the song was only meant for darker-skinned girls.
She captioned the post with the following:
"This song is touched for me!!! To us brown skin girls worldwide!! ❤️❤️❤️ I SAID WHAT I SAID! Go argue with Jik plz!! DANKIE BEY "

"Yoh it’s 11pm!!! Good night guys!! Please drag me quietly ngi lele manje!! DONT FORGET!
BROWN SKIN GIRLS WORLDWIDE. "
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Khanyi Mbau took off in a Twitter tirade against commenters who exclaimed that "in SA the same people get all the deals" after she announced a new partnership with Castle Lite and Bathu shoes.
The celeb responded to the claims by saying that those people just fast, pray and hustle. The Twitterverse, however, was not satisfied with her take.
The vitriol is just the latest online discussion in the 'open the industry' campaign which has seen tweeps and followers hurling accusations at SA celebs for using their connections and always giving lucrative deals to the same people.
In other news, Khanyi Mbau took to Instagram to share pictures of herself with her daughter, Khanukani. The mother-daughter duo looked stunning in the pics that Khanyi shared as they donned different outfits and struck different poses for the camera.
Fans of the famous mom were quick to add their thoughts on having kids and being parents, with the main theme being how bittersweet it is to watch your babies grow up so fast.
Khanukani's dad is former millionaire, Mandla Mthembu, but he and Khanyi are no longer together.
