At 13 years old, it’s clear Khanukani is growing up and shares her mother’s striking looks.

The fact wasn’t lost on her mom who posted the images of the two of them on Instagram with the caption: “What an honour watching you bloom into such a beautiful flower.”

Fans may get the chance to see more of Khanukani after Mbau teased her new reality show earlier this weekend. Called ’Mbau Reloaded, Always Rise,' the series will air on BET Africa.

Fans were quick to pick up on the resemblance.

“Your clone,” said entrepreneur and motivational speaker Farah Fortune.

Author Kefilwe Mabote commented: “Beautiful she has grown so much.”

The YouTuber posted images of himself crying. In one picture he is seen being held by family members.

Taking to Twitter, Dambuza posted the images and said: “RIP Dad, till we meet again… tell my mom I said I’ll be okay, thank you for raising a dynamite!”

Many felt that he should not have posted the images, but he hit back, saying that he could do what he wanted to.
