Khanyi Mbau dedicated her award at the 13th annual Feather Awards ceremony to her lover, Kudzai.
Recently, the couple made headlines after it was reported that she left her lover in Dubai without his notice.
Khanyi Mbau’s “Dubai saga” with her man might have had tongues wagging on social media and left many in laughter, but the actress made it clear in her acceptance speech when accepting the Drama Queen award, that the incident was a representation of the importance of women holding their own.
Shesaid: “It’s not an insult, it’s knowing your worth. My journey has changed since I started in the industry. I was a kept woman but I worked my way up to becoming the woman who keeps others. When this happened I was empowering the young little girl who is a slay queen, who looks at Khanyi and says ‘I want to travel the world like you’.
Khanyi concluded saying that she will like to dedicate the award to him as he has shown her the kind is man he is.
”I would like to dedicate this award to Kudzai. He has shown men it’s OK to show strength in pain, to be remorseful on social media and look like a fool. And show men that it is OK to show emotion and you can show how much you love a woman. I don’t see it like a joke. Our relationship lost its status in a way but if you look at it, a boy of 28 has shown men to fight for the woman you love. That’s the new trend.”
