Media personality, actress and radio personality Khanyi Mbau complexition getting lighter has been a major topic of discussion on various platforms in South Africa.

Many people believe that Khanyi Mbau has bleached her skin that is why she has grown so light but she says she hasn’t bleached. Taking to the newly launched South African live video streaming service VOOV, Khanyi addressed the subject of her lightening.

“There’s this thing where people believe that I bleach my skin. I don’t bleach my skin, I lighten it. There is a difference between lightening and bleaching, and people just don’t get it,” Khanyi said in the broadcast.

Khanyi also explained how her skin got to its pinkish skin saying; “People who (are)  lightening their skins using gallons and overdose on (skin whitening products) glutathione tend to have skin like mine. Pinkish, lightish, like an albino colour,” Khanyi said.

“My skin does (have this complexion) because I overdo everything in life. There is no side effects. All it does is make me lighter and it is like having loads of  vitamin C, which means I don’t get the flu easily,” Khanyi said.
