Khanyi Mbau Joins The “Brown Skin Girl” Squad


Khanyi Mbau is clearly a girl that is focused on making sure that she is grabbing headlines before the premier of her BET hosted reality show by grabbing all the headlines by stirring controversy.

The much beloved personality formerly known as the “Queen of Bling” took a page out of Pearl Thusi’s page by attempting to use the matter of her complexion to shake the Twitter streets. Khanyi’s latest post featured the star making it clear that she too belongs to the “Brown Skin Girl” squad. This is despite her well documented skin lightening journey, which she has been an advocate for before it even was a “thing” in South Africa.

For anyone that is unaware of the controversy of the “Brown Skin Girl” affirmations by light skinned girls, here is the 4-1-1. Pearl Thusi, who is already not a Twitter fave because of her alleged affiliation with foreign (Nigerian) men, shook the streets months earlier when she asserted that she was a “Brown Skin Girl.” Tweeps aimed at her with all guns blazing rebutting her that the Beyonce song was only meant for “darker” shades of black beauty, and not light-skinned women.

But clearly, Khanyi was not deterred by the backlash endured by her counterpart. Khanyi took to Twitter and revealed how much the song touches her. She then added that, “ To us brown skin girls world wide!” And sussing the probability of being dragged took the first poke at her complexion and how she got to be so fair by writing that, “Go argue with Jik please!”

The star not only made the post, but she took the time to address the comments that came her way. Mbau replied to most of the comments on the post. From the comments that attempted to drag her with malicious comments about her comments, to those from tweeps that applauded her no-nonsense stance. Eventually the comments became people laughing with her, instead of at her.


Khanyi ended the interaction by reiterating her stance that she is a member of the “Brown Skin Girl” squad, despite any backlash she might receive for it. And mupon waking up to see that her stance did not yield backlash, Khanyi has focussed on spending her Sunday praying for rain. The personality suggested that her garden is currently suffering from the lack of rain her residential area has experienced. Now, we wait for the reality show to see just how dry the garden is.
