After the scene trended Khanyi took to her Instagram to gush over her bae Kudzai Mushonga, who has been supportive of her dreams.
“Your level of support baby, the way you let me chase my dreams and want to see me become the best in all I do is incredible and honestly the wind beneath my wings. My silent cheerleader and fighter, my family, my guide. How you do it? Truly beats me. My love, my hubby. My heart. Thank you for remaining constant.”

“Are you disappointed that Khanyi is really showing her gifts and talent, in terms of her craft?. She is growing as an actor not because she did that love scene but I can tell that Khanyi is really growing as an actress, and a lot of people doubted her, or some did. But Khanyi is an amazing actress.
