Reality television star and original slay queen, Khanyi Mbau sent shock waves across the continent after announcing that her brand manager, Dylan Musanhu who was widely known as Dylan Kardashian had passed on.
She made the unfortunate announcement through her social media but did not reveal the cause of death. The news left a big question mark on the minds of fans of both Dylan and Khanyi – Masanhu was quite popular on the internet. Dylan’s social media pages also confirmed this. He passed away on his 25th birthday.
A few hours ago, The Herald reported that the rising star had committed suicide. The reason which led him to take his life is yet to be established. There hasn’t been any official statement from his family or close friend Khanyi Mbau regarding the cause of his passing or funeral arrangements.
Dylan was born in Zimbabwean but raised here in South Africa before relocating to England a few years ago with his family. He worked with Mabau as her brand manager since 2015, designing promos for her talk show and helping her build her website. When Khanyi used to host her radio show, Coup De Grace on popular youth station YFM, Kardashian covered the entertainment international wrap-up where he focused on trending celebrity hot topics.
The 25-year-old started gaining popularity after American megastar Nicki Minaj shared numerous Instagram stories about him. His fame grew even more after Minaj regrammed a photo featuring Dylan and herself. The photo gained over sixty thousand likes which were massive at the time. Other Hollywood A-listers who took notice of his work were Snooki and Kim and Khloe Kardashian.
In 2016, he was selected as one of the social media stars to kick off the E! Red Carpet season at the Golden Globes Watch Along Party held in London. The following year, he was invited to attend the 10th Anniversary celebration launch of Keeping Up With The Kardashians hosted by E! Entertainment in London.
