Local actress Khanyi Mbau was at the heart of Twitter's jokes after the 'Abomama' star tried to tease the award-winning US rapper, Cardi B.

Cardi B and her husband Offset recently purchased matching Lamborghinis and shared a snap of their new wheels with fans on social media. Mbau then quote-tweeted Cardi's post and wrote: "Should I tell her?"

Twitter assumed that Mbau was referring to a time when she and businessman Mandla Mthembu used to drive Joburg streets with their matching yellow Lambos, but tweeps quickly pulled receipts and remind her that she was "renting" her Lambo — while Cardi purchased hers.
