The Durban Gqom Duo Distruction Boyz had to delay their much-anticipated video for their summer smash ‘Omunye’. The visuals for the music video were set to release earlier this week but the lead character on the video, Khanyi Mbau, wasn’t happy with the shade of her complexion.
A statement released by the official Destruction Boyz Facebook page states that the video could not be released because Mbau was not happy with how she looked in the final cut of the video,
KHANYI MBAU is complaining that the video does not represent her looks accordingly. She complained about her shade being TOO DARK and this conflicts with her brands that sponsor her looks
The statement reads.
The statement by the Boyz goes on to say that they respect Khanyi’s decision to send the video back to the editors. They further mention the fact that music channels are fighting them because the submission of the video is extremely late.
A fan on Twitter reached out to Mbau, pleading with her to reshoot the video, her response was that she is too busy.
I can’t reshoot! I am currently shooting a feature film with Leon Schuster, I am busy!!! This video will wait!! https://t.co/DqdDcvM6YY
