KHANYI MBAU SAYS SOMIZI IS ‘SUPER WELCOME’ TO ROAST HER
Comedy Central announced the official roast of Khanyi Mbau on Tuesday 14 June. The actress is excited to be the first black female to be roasted on the platform.
“This is going to be a moment of all roasts and as the first African black female to do it, there will be a first of many,” she said to The Citizen.
“We carry our baggage so much, it creates fear for us, this is me trying to say to women if I can do this in a room full of strangers all you need to do, is go in the room is look at yourself and embrace all your insecurities,” she continued.
Somizi Mhlongo revealed that he and Khanyi were beefing on an episode of his reality show. However, the actress says Somizi is “super welcome” to roast her on the special.
“I haven’t spoken to Somizi but if he wants to come throw stuff, as he is part of the roast family, he is super welcomed,” she said to the publication.

WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN THE ACTRESS AND SOMIZI?
So, what happened between Somizi and Khanyi? Well Somizi was first upset that Khanyi did not organise a private jet for their trip to Cape Town. He explained that he did not want anything to do with her.
“She first messed up with the private jet because we were relying on her. It was her connection, we were all going to contribute and fly here in a jet. And she goes quiet, on the day, she went silent, she goes quiet,” he said on an episode of the reality show.
He then decided to fly her out because he did not want her to be alone on New Year’s Eve. It seems that Khanyi did not show up after the Idols SA judge booked her a flight.
“I sat with Ndo and he made reservations. I booked her a flight… to this point I haven’t spoken to Khanyi and I’m waiting for her to give me a call and she knows I’m angry at her. For me its literally things like that, that disappoint me,” he added.
“I took the time… I didn’t have to. It isn’t even about money, it’s about the effort and the time that I feel disrespected,” he went on to say.
