Local personality Khanyi Mbau poked fun at her skin colour transformation on Sunday. 

The "Abomama" star quote tweeted Sizwe Dhlomo after he posted a video of a horse he bought and captioned the post: "Drove to Bloem this morning to buy this horse. 

"She’s a registered pure Percheron, two years old & already massive! She’ll turn white at around year five or six."

The "Uzalo" star replied by saying: "Is her name Khanyi Mbau" with a laughing emoji. 

Tweeps found her reply hilarious since she isn't afraid to poke fun at herself. 

Mbau has been very open about lightening her skin using  glutathione IV treatments compared to the traditional skin bleaching creams that's used in many African countries. 

She also recently dismissed pregnancy rumours after she posted a picture of her getting an ultrasound saying that it was a scene from "Red Room" which she starred in.
