Local actress Khanyi Mbau kicked off her birthday celebrations last week with a brunch at Sakhumzi Restaurant in Soweto.

The 'Abomama' star is making sure she starts her 33rd year in style with multi-celebratory events.

The first one was held on October 11, four days before her actual birthday, in Soweto, where friends and family gathered to kick off the festivities.  

Those in attendance included Mbau's sisters, singer Vusi Nova, Kenny Kunene and "Real Housewives of Johannesburg" star Naledi Willers' friend, Lerika Kleinhans. 

The party then moved to Moloko in Pretoria on Friday, where Mbau is pictured partying with her bae Tebogo Lerole and Sumo Nightclub on Sunday.
