On October 15, 1985, Khanyisile Mbau was born. Lynette Sisi Mbau, her mother, worked for Barclays Bank in the financial department of the pension fund.
Menzi Mcunu, her father, was not married to her mother at the time because they were only dating. Even though Mcunu had no title to the kid, he gave her the name Khanyisile, which means “one who provides light.”
Mbau took her mother’s surname as her own. Lynette quickly returned to work after leaving baby Khanyi with her parents in Mofolo, Soweto and left her grandma to practically raise her.
