The two personalities shared the same father, and the passing of a parent is never easy and has seen Khanyi take time off social media. The bubbly personality besides posting the news of her father's passing has shared details about their father's passing. 

Condolences for Khanyi and her family have poured in from their fans and followers and several Mzansi personalities. Khanyi's ex-boyfriend Tebogo Lerole has taken to social media to pay tribute to Khanyi's father, who he became close with during their relationship. 

In his post, Tebogo offered his condolences to Khanyi and the Mcunu family, "I am so sorry Chunky". 

"I cannot comprehend the agony endured by you and the Mcunu family. I wish to send my unfeigned solace to You, Ousi Mmabatho, Tiara, Lungile, Junior, Lasizwe, Imbale, Sifiso, Ayanda, your Mothers as well as HIS friends, family and colleagues. Your FATHER welcomed me into his home as a son, HE embraced me and held my hand as one of HIS own. To this day I look up and cherish all the exceptional moments spent with MaCingwana as you would aptly call HIM," wrote Tebogo. 

In his post, Tebogo also thanked Khanyi for granting him the opportunity to meet her father and called him a "giant" and asked for his soul to rest in eternal peace. 

"I pray for your family’s strength and healing, akwehlanga kungehlanga. Umoya wenu mawuxole during these trying times"

In July, Khanyi announced on social media that she and Tebogo had split once again and this time for good. 

In a statement posted on Instagram, Khanyi shared that their second attempt as a couple grew them "even further apart". 

"Tebogo Edward billion has chosen to take a different path and have chosen to respect it and let him soar into greatness. And by this we are no longer an item," shared the media personality. 

Khanyi and Tebogo split just after a year-and-a-half after getting back together following their previous split, they had been together for almost a decade together. 

“A decade of dating someone comes with great joy and immense difficulty, that fighting to stay together is sometimes not enough. Some paths are meant to cross and certain seasons to pass,” she explained in her post.
 
The couple may no longer be together but it’s clear to see that they will always be there for each other no matter what.
