From the moment we heard the first line, “I’m good at f____g, I can f____k a man very well” we knew we were in for a heavy episode of Seng’khathele! And Lerato Mvelase’s reaction proved it. We met Mbali and her partner Skhumba this week, both of whom hail from Tembisa.
Mbali, a self-confessed gold digger, came to Lerato in a bid to end her relationship with her man Skumba. Lerato had a lot to handle in this particular edition!
Now I ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger…
Mbali introduced herself as someone who wants to be spoiled and treated. From the onset it is clear that this young lady is very… well, confident! She knows what she brings to the table (plenty of curves) and what she wants (plenty of coins). When they first met, it looked as if Skhumbuzo might be the guy for her.
She believed that they had a good balance. He would spoil her, she would satisfy all his needs – and I mean all his needs (refer to the opening line above!). However, things quickly fell apart between the two of them.
“I can’t eat I love you!”
Mbali opened up about the fact that she doesn’t want an “I love you” type of relationship at all. She wants money!
Although Skhumba used to do the things that needed to be done, eventually he stopped planning for their future. Money ran out. Goals were no longer met. This is always a huge red flag in a relationship and it’s clear that once their future died, so did their present.
Mbali also openly admitted that she wants someone who can spoil and pamper her. “The problem is about money”, she said to Lerato. She even admitted to cheating on the poor man with a rich brother in a bid to get more money.
Needless to say, Black Twitter had something to say about her demanding lifestyle.
A breakup is never easy. A breakup in front of cameras, is something else – as Skhumbuzo quickly found out. The tension was thick from the get go. At first, Skhumba was on the defensive but once he could see that Mbali was gunning for him, he hit back in his own calm, collected and confident manner.
He accused her of cheating (well, let’s be fair, she has been!) while she accused him of being a broke leech. The back and forth continued until eventually Mbali cut the chord and admitted that it was better if they broke up. Skhumba, and the whole of South Africa, agreed.
Lerato Mvelase was left shocked and stunned. She’s seen a lot of breakups before but nothing as cold-hearted as this one. Yikes!
