Olwethu Mkhwanazi is a South African model, social media personality, and Instagram influencer best recognized as the last girlfriend of Killer Kau, the late South African artist. Her exact age is not public knowledge, but she seems to have been born between the late 90s and early 2000s.
Olwethu and Killer Kau dated for years and even managed to keep the private details of their romance away from the public. Sadly, Kau passed away in 2021. The aftermath of their short-lived relationship has continued to haunt Olwethu, bringing her to the spotlight repeatedly. Who exactly is Olwethu, and what went down when she was with Killer Kau? Has she moved on? Let’s find out.
Olwethu Mkhwanazi is South African
Olwethu was born and raised in South Africa. Her early life details are very obscure as she didn’t come to fame of her own merit but through a relationship with someone famous. Olwethu’s parents are unknown. Her siblings, if any, are also hidden from the public.
Mkhwanazi has kept her family out of the public eye over the years. The young lady doesn’t talk about them or herself in any interviews. She attended high school in South Africa, but information on that is also unavailable. She appears to be a college student presently.
While we have no idea the window within which she got her admission, Olwethu will most likely graduate in a couple of years. As you have already guessed, her course of study is completely private.
More personal details about Olwethu, like her age, date of birth, and place of birth, are all inaccessible to the public. However, Olwethu’s age is estimated to be not more than 27. When Killer Kau was alive and in a relationship with her, he was 23 years old. This leaves the impression that he and Olwethu were either agemates or she was younger.
Killer Kau’s Ex-Girlfriend is a Model and Instagram Influencer
A trip to the Instagram profile of the beautiful lady will reveal countless pictures of her in various outfits and poses. While Olwethu has not really come out to say what she does explicitly, all arrows point toward a brand-influencing and modeling career.
On her official Instagram page, Olwethu has gathered over 70k followers already. She isn’t active on any other social media platforms that we know of. While she isn’t a popular model by any standard, Olwethu’s 70k followers ensure she earns sizable amounts of money from brand advertising.
A closer look at Killer Kau’s ex will reveal a tall, attractive woman with a killer figure. Although she doesn’t say much, it seems like she takes up modeling gigs from time to time. Most of her jobs require her to dress up in the required outfits and strike a pose, something we can agree that Olwethu is good at.
Apart from these two major jobs, there is no further clue about what Olwethu does to make money. Further investigations about her possible income range were pulled up short. Olwethu generally doesn’t seem to want to talk much about herself.
Olwethu was Introduced to the Public as Killer Kau’s Girlfriend in 2021
Olwethu was the girlfriend of a famous South African rapper, dancer, and record producer, Killer Kau, who recently died in a car accident. Killer Kau didn’t post too many pictures with Olwethu Mkhwanazi on his Instagram account, but he revealed they were dating in one particular post.
While his post sparked a lot of discussions, many people couldn’t decipher who the girl in the picture was because Killer Kau didn’t say. He also didn’t tag her in the post, meaning that nosy fans couldn’t go to her profile to check her out.
She remained Killer Kau’s Girlfriend Until His Death in July 2021
Born in Soweto on July 5, 1998, Sakhile Hlatshwayo, better known by his stage name Killer Kau, was an accomplished rapper, dancer, and producer. The young star gained fame in 2017 after posting a video of himself singing Tholukuthi Hey.
As a result of the video’s virality, DJ Euphonik decided to sign Kau. There’s no doubt that the young man was on his way to becoming a superstar when tragedy struck. On August 9, 2021, the worst happened.
The musician had been traveling in a car when it was tragically involved in an accident, killing him, his best friend, an Amapiano artist named Mpura, and upcoming musicians Khanya Hadebe, DJ Thando Tot, and TD.
Kau had been headed to a performance in Rustenburg, North West. This sad event came just one month after he had celebrated his 23rd birthday. On August 15, 2021, Killer Kau was finally laid to rest in his hometown.
Olwethu Mkhwanazi paid a moving homage to her late partner on Instagram, writing that there was no greater agony than she experienced that day. Olwethu revealed that it seemed her heart had been ripped from her chest.
She also posted a video montage of the two of them sharing precious moments. Many other fans took to social media to offer their condolences. Interestingly, no one knew who Olwethu really was until she posted that video. This was because she and Killer Kau had kept their relationship under a thick veil during its entire duration.
Olwethu Mkhwanazi is Rumoured to Have Gotten Married in Late 2022
Five months after her ex-boyfriend’s death, Olwethu trended again. This time around, it was because of a post she made on Instagram. The young model reportedly addressed her message to fans of her late ex, saying she was ready to move on with her life.
As expected, the internet was sent into a frenzy, with myriads of opinions flying. Some people supported her, saying she was young, and shouldn’t have been expected to walk about with the burden of a relationship no one knew whether it would have even led to marriage.
Many others, however, were of the opinion that five months was too soon for her to have gotten over Killer Kau’s death. Amidst all the controversy, Olwethu did move on. However, there seemed to be a fresh controversy, as she had reportedly moved on with a friend of Killer Kau’s.
Till now, the identity of her new beau hasn’t been made public yet, and Olwethu hasn’t come out to deny it either, which means there might be truth to these rumors. Furthermore, it came out in September 2022 that she married the said friend.
There are no credible details about Olwethu’s supposed wedding on the internet as there are no pictures and neither Olwethu nor her supposed husband has confirmed it.
