Sthembiso “SK” Khoza’s ex-fiancée Ayanda Hlongwane has broken her silence about her alleged abuse at the hands of the actor. This comes after SK’s Instagram Live interview on Ama-Tyma Wellness Check-in, speaking about his relationship with Ayanda, made the rounds on social media. The former “The Queen” actor and Ayanda’s failed relationship is laced with abuse allegations, arrests, and legal battles.
Ayanda took to her Instagram on Tuesday, saying she could not hold back any longer as her alleged abuser kept parading as innocent. In the post, she shared texts between the former couple and images showing the injuries she allegedly suffered at the hands of SK as well as legal papers from SK’s lawyer asking for mediation, explaining why she dropped the charges. She felt the interview and constant comments on the matter by SK were emotionally abusive and alluded that there was a truth she could unveil that would shock South Africa.

Outgoing Manchester United star Paul Pogba is the latest sporting icon to receive the documentary treatment, with Amazon Prime confirming that a series is on the way. The World Cup winner became one of the most expensive footballers in history when he rejoined the Red Devils for €105 million (£88m) in 2016, and he is regarded as one of the most gifted midfielders of his generation. Pogba’s personality has won him admiration and derision in equal measure, with younger fans reveling in his stylish dance celebrations.
The documentary, which has been dubbed “The Pogmentary” by producers, will focus on Paul Pogba, featuring his exploits on the pitch and his life off the pitch. Georgia Brown, who is head of European originals at Amazon Studios, says that the documentary will provide a glimpse into the “man behind the fame” by looking at his life away from the field of play. Amazon Prime’s Paul Pogba documentary will be available to stream on June 17, 2022.
