South African actress Khanyi Mbau‘s ex-boyfriend has allegedly found a new love interest Vanja, who goes as bunny__bandit on Instagram. Here’s what we know about her.

She eventually went back to Dubai and the pair appeared to be loved-up on Instagram and on the first season of Young, Famous & African. However, Kudzai was nowhere to be seen on season two of the series, despite Khanyi revealing she is now a resident of Dubai,
