Though she didn’t reveal the identity of her former partner, the media personality, detailed how she had the opportunity to mourn the relationship in private because no one knew what she was going through, including her colleagues at Metro FM.

“Perks of keeping your relationship private, for those that do, is taking your L’s in private! Parted ways with someone I thought was the love of my life, after 4 years, went through the heartbreak in private, cried in private and moved TF along,” she wrote.

Wearing her heart on her sleeve, she shared some of the details from the painful experience:

I remember writing him a long text about how he has hurt me, and how I was loyal to him and sacrificed so much for the both of us in the 4 years... and... he mized the text 🤣😂 Yeses! That’s BLOODY painful!!!

Yes there was a time I wanted to hurt him as much as he hurt me! But I realized, I was going to hurt myself even more....

We planned a trip together, I took leave for 2 weeks, and a week before he ditched me 😫🤣😂🤣😂...Got to work the following day and everyone was like “Hawu? Wena?” ... I said “Neeeeh I changed my mind” 😂 The lies!

Kganyago also revealed she had to take anti-anxiety medication as a means to cope with the breakup. She posted an image of a packet of Xanor SrR tablets, "medication used to treat anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and anxiety caused by depression".

She captioned the image: “When i shot Project Runway I was living on these! No one knew! Haven’t touched them in months!”

Fans expressed their sympathy and support to the star, with many also sharing their stories on social media.

Yiu have just reassured me that time heals. After 8 years I have to go through what you just described. The crying every night when I am home alone like someone died has been my survival mode. Took leave now and spending time with family and trying to look Ok.

 This is so painful 😭 and when someone does this you even ask yourself “Did this person even love me” 😭 “why am I the only one hurting”
