For Khanyi Mbau, throwing a ball was her way of getting together with the people she considers to be close friends. In attendance was rapper Nadia Nakai, who has a strong friendship with Khanyi. Seeing that Nadia's friend and celebrity stylist Swankyjerry was visiting Johannesburg with actress Annie Macaulay-Idibia, Nadia invited them both to Khanyi's ball. However, Nadia was concerned that Khanyi shouldn't take it the wrong way, as she had never met Annie. And looks like she had all the right reasons to be worried.
With Swankyjerry, Nadia, Annie, Diamond Platinumz, Andile Ncube, Quinton Masina and Kayleigh Schwark were all seated at Khanyi's table with her boyfriend, Kudzai Mushonga. The conversation soon went to each other's families, as Diamond Platinumz admitted having multiple children and was not entirely sure of the count. He explained that he believes he has six kids, two of whom were born earlier on, and their respective mothers have not let him stay in contact with them.
Annie, who sees motherhood as a full-time job, was disturbed by this, and as the conversation continued, her disbelief only grew. Khanyi admitted that her 15-year-old daughter, Khanz, doesn't live with her but stays in an apartment next door. She spoke very openly about how virginity is either given or taken and that she believes in allowing her daughter to be her person. She also added that her focus is on being the kind of parent she wanted growing up.
Annie and Andile openly called her out on her parenting skills, stating that what she was doing was not right at all. Khanyi kept her cool the entire time, but Nadia was visibly upset, seeing that the person she invited was being disrespectful to the host. Annie and Andile later stepped aside, with Annie opening up about how her own relationship with rapper Innocent Ujah Idibia, also known as 2Baba, was not easy. She spoke to Andile about how her first child with him was technically his 5th child, as he had four children with different women before this. Khanyi hijacked their conversation, but that didn't stop Annie from pouring her heart out -- the fact that Khanyi thought was not a smart move, seeing that she now had leverage on her.
Catch 'Young, Famous & African' on Netflix from March 18, 2022 onwards.
