Khanyi Mbau has admitted that she knows what she wants when it comes to dating, after being accused of only dating men for money.

Khanyi Mbau was one of several women who undoubtedly won on Valentine’s Day, after her new boyfriend Kudzai Mushonga spared no expense when it came time to spoil her. Their young romance is still in the honeymoon phase but the lovers have already gotten the country talking over the past few weeks.

This week the conversation has been about Khanyi’s preference for, um, wealthy men!

Does Khanyi only date rich men?

If you’ve followed Khanyi Mbau, you will know that she has been linked to a number of wealthy men throughout her love life. In her youth, she was labelled a “gold digger” but she has shaken that title off in recent times, especially after becoming a mother and taking on a more responsible role in her life and career.

However, the same accusations have resurfaced this week after Khanyi’s latest boyfriend made headlines. Kudzai Mushonga is a monied-up Zimbabwean businessman who clearly loves to spoil his new bae. He appears to be Khanyi’s type, according to onlookers who believe that the reality TV star only dates men with money.

After seeing the accusations surface a number of times, Khanyi finally responded. During an interview with Sizwe Dhlomo on Kaya FM, Khanyi explained, “The thing is with my relationships I treat them like how I buy a car or a house … you know what you want in the house. I know what my requirements are and I’m not going to back down.

“So many people confuse relationships and say, ‘Ah, I’m looking for love’ and two months down the relationship they’re looking for something else and that’s why they’ll never win because you haven’t made it clear what you want.”
