- Kudzai Mushonga was dragged on social media after he made comments about his girlfriend Khanyi Mbau
- The Zimbabwean businessman posted a throwback of Khanyi, calling her "dusty", and fans were unimpressed
- Kudzai then took to social media to clarify his comments and explain why he said what he did
Mzansi media personality Khanyi Mbau is in love with her boo Kudzai Mushonga and they seem really happy. However, Kudzai rubbed a number of social media users up the wrong way when he posted a throwback picture of Khanyi, calling her "dusty".
Fans assumed that Kudzai was calling Khanyi dusty because her skin was much darker back in the day. It's no secret that Khanyi has had cosmetic procedures done to lighten the complexion of her skin.
After receiving serious backlash, Kudzai took to social media to clarify his statement about the old picture of Khanyi. Kudzai made it clear that it was just harmless banter between him and his girlfriend and he didn't mean anything malicious by it.
"Mrs K introduced me to the term DUSTY my boy," he said.
While people were upset over his comments, Khanyi's little brother Lasizwe took to social media to talk about how happy he was for his sister. Lasizwe said that he had never seen his sister so content in her life.
Social media users were upset by the post and Twitter user @Zandii_Omnyama commented:
"Is it not Khanyi Mbau husband or fiancé saying dark-skinned women are dusty! Then you lot say colourism is not a thing here in SA."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Khanyi Mbau tattooed her boyfriend’s name on her body.

“Yoh yoh! #KhanyiMbau got this guy’s name tatted on her thigh. IT WILL END IN A WATERFALL OF TEARS!”
