South African star Khanya Mkangisa is all grown up and she isn’t afraid to show it.
The TV personality/actress/Iman Cosmetics ambassador, well know as a former presenter on SA’s Yo-TV, is now taking up more mature roles to shake off her “little girl” image that audiences are too accustomed to. In her new persona, she has taken on more controversial roles like playing Nomzamo on the South African TV hit Intersexions and now starring in series, Zabalaza and baring a lot in fashion magazine Previdar.com‘s “Birth of Venue” issue.
In her interview with the magazine, Khanya goes into detail on her transformation to mature movie roles, what she thinks of Miley Cyrus’ transformation and the impact of Nelson Mandela’s legacy on her life.
Read an excerpt from her interview where she talks about Miley Cyrus;
I love Miley and I can relate to her. I mean, she was typecast as Hannah Montana while she grew up in the public eye. And that’s what people fail to understand – she GREW up. We ALL grow up. Miley got tired of her “little girl” image so she cut her hair, went blonde and twerked in front of the whole world. She is going through a phase in her life and it just so happens that she is in the public eye. People must just accept that. I’ve been called the “Yo-TV Girl” for the longest time, even though I’ve been on a lot of shows since, but it has still stuck with me. I can understand why Miley felt she needed the change.
