American media did Michael Jackson wrong. People believed them. It’s a shame.
However here is the truth that the Media didn’t tell you: MJ had Vitiligo (a skin disorder he tried to hide for years with makeup until he couldn’t and Lupus. Solution was to even it out. pic.twitter.com/Bk4kVUBT8p

Khanyi Mbau herself has never been shy about admitting that she has had surgical enhancements performed on her body. In 2017, the popular celebrity forked out a massive R95 000 on cosmetic surgery. She underwent a waist reduction procedure, liposuction and also had work done on her breasts.
Speaking on her skin colour and colourism in the entertainment industry, Khanyi revealed that she spends around R10 000 a month to maintain her complexion.
“90% of the colour of my skin is cosmetic now and this was a personal choice but not because it’s something that’s needed for the industry. It’s something that I preferred, and I realised that once my skin is fairer they have to use less make-up.
“Unlike sitting in the chair before I shoot a movie for long, I could just put on powder and go. So for me, that was a maintenance issue I wanted to do,” she told eNCA.
She has also made it clear that she does not care about what people think of her. Last year, she wrote on social media that people’s opinions do not mean anything to her.
