We had to do a double take seeing actress Khanyi Mbau in the company of “former” boyfriend, Tebogo Lerole at the South African edition of Bohemian Rhapsody premiere. The couple broke up early this year with Khanyi confirming the news on social media.
“We’ve always had a good relationship but, you know Whitney Houston once said that “when it’s good it’s good and when it’s bad it’s bad”,” said Khanyi when we asked her about the nature of their companionship. “That is, as well as hitting moments of profound sadness, our relationship had moments of pure joy.
“We broke up alright but it we were comparatively civil to each other. Later on, we decided to retrace our steps trying to find our sweet spot as both individuals and people in a relationship.
“It was out of the prodding of Tebogo who said ‘let’s fix it (relationship), let’s work through it, don’t walk away, let’s go back to the drawing board…” That’s what we trying to do.”
What of the movie? We ask. “Oh, I loved it!” she said. “Oh, my word, I even cried! It was beautiful. I’ve always been a fan of both the song, Bohemian Rhapsody, and the band Queen. So, to see a biopic on this seminal band (Queen) is truly special.”
