Khanyi Mbau Slams Netflix’s “Young, Famous & African” Series

South African actress, Khanyi Mbau, has revealed that she was diagnosed with burnout while filming the latest season of Netflix’s “Young, Famous & African” series.

“It was very hard and painful to watch for me. It triggered me so much. During filming, I was not well. I was diagnosed with burnout in February, meaning I have been struggling for 14 months during production,” the 37-year-old said in an Instagram post on Saturday, 20 May.

“Filming was incredibly hard. I watched the show with one eye open. It was painful. I saw the bad state I was in. I struggled with my speech most of the time and had zoned out 90% of the time,” Mbau.

Ugandan socialite, Zari Hassan, has reportedly also bashed the show, adding that the editors had removed important points from the final product.

Season two of the Netflix series – released on Friday, 19 May – has been critically received so far, with many tweeps finding the show overhyped. “This show was rushed, the editing was bad, many things were left hanging,” one user named Madzana tweeted on Sunday, 21 May.

However, others have been quick to judge Mbau and criticising her response to the arrival of the newbie to the show, presenter Bonang Matheba.
