Candy Mokwena, nicknamed Candy Tsa Mandebele, has a lot to say about Sunday newspaper rumours that she’s broke.

Despite finding the rumours silly, she spilled the beans about what’s really happening in her life with laughter and excitement.

“The reporter said I’m down and out and in a period of three months I had only performed twice: a gig at an unveiling and some birthday party,” she said. “They said I hit hard times and I hadn’t been paid for the unveiling gig.”

Candy revealed that on the day the story was published, she had had her brand new Chevrolet SUV for just three days and had thrown her 86-year-old mother a house warming party, built by her.

“Now I’m even wearing a Michael Kors watch,” she giggled.

So Candy has proven she’s not broke and has a lot to say about her relationship with Kelly Khumalo who was a source of support when she lost her son.

“Kelly Khumalo was a godsend at that period in my life,” she said. “She reached out to me and said ‘Take it easy’. I respect that woman. When she talks, it’s as if an adult is talking to me.”

Candy has a lot going on in her life, and she loves every bit of it.
