Khanyi Mbau Celebrates 20 Years In The Entertainment Industry And Reflects On Her Career
South African actress, singer, radio, and TV host, Khanyi Mbau, who recently became a permanent resident in Dubai with her boyfriend and business partner, Kudzai Mushonga, is returning to South Africa soon for work purposes. Mbau and Mushonga moved to Dubai to start afresh and to allow Mbau to “find herself” and rebrand.
Reflecting on Life in Dubai
Mbau has been living in the Middle East full-time and has become a resident of Dubai, using this time to determine her place in the entertainment industry and her purpose. She has been in the industry for 20 years, having done acting, music, and even being a sugar baby. However, Mbau felt that she needed to move away to figure out what her contribution could be in the industry’s evolving space.
Changes in the Entertainment Industry
Mbau also acknowledges that the industry has changed dramatically since she first started her career. She states that the younger generation, also known as Gen-Z, is incredible, and their time has come. It is no longer about attending events to be seen, and social media has become a powerful tool for individuals to go viral daily. Mbau has decided to take a hiatus in the ultra-futuristic city of Dubai to find her place in the industry’s changing landscape.
Reflection on Career
Mbau reflects on the past 20 years, acknowledging that she is not the freshest thing in the industry. The industry gives everyone their turn to shine, and she has had hers. Mbau acknowledges that she needs to evolve with the industry and find her place in the world, which has led her to Dubai for reflection and growth.
