Shauwn Mkhize was married to Sbu Mpisane, and the duo divorced in 2019.
In their marriage, they were blessed with a child, their son is Andile Mpisane and Sbu Mpisane already had a daughter, who was six at the time of their marriage – Sbahle Mpisane.
Shauwn Mkhize has admitted although Sbahle is not her biological daughter, they both have a special bond.
“I know that it’s common knowledge that I didn’t carry her in my womb for nine months. Nonetheless, she is my daughter because I met her when she was around six or seven years old. Therefore, my bond with Sbahle … it will never go away.”
According to reports, Andile claimed that his father had fathered four children which he was supporting with his mother, Shauwn’s money. Andile further claimed that his mother handed Sbu many business opportunities, but spit in her face with his infidelity.
After the divorce and the amount of aired dirty laundry, Sbu Mpisane decided to speak up and shared his sentiments about Shauwn’s upcoming reality show and stated that he isn’t one to expose his private life.
“Some people contain their private lives. Others enjoy revealing their private lives. I am not a person who likes to expose who I am. If she feels that she needs to expose herself, it’s all about her.”
“We are divorcing. I can’t tell her what to do. If she decides to be Mkhize and if she decides to go on a reality show and talk about other people, I am just praying that she doesn’t say things that are going to compromise her at the end.”
The businesswoman’s reality show – Kwa Mam’Mkhize has been a major hit with viewers since it’s debut on DSTV channel Mzansi Magic. The show looks into the chronicles of the Mkhize/Mpisane family, as well as those closest to them.
Shauwn Mkhize is the primary driver of the show, however, her enviable life is filled with other important characters such as her son, Andile Mpisane and famous stepdaughter, Sbahle Mpisane.
