In the world of influencers and social media sensations, Lasizwe has made sure his name is among the movers and shakers. He’s been criticised and even trolled for his OTT personality and stunts.

Lasizwe is not a sham
Fake It Till You Make It is not Lasizwe’s first rodeo on MTV. He was one of the presenters on You Got Got, a one-of-a-kind show on MTB Base Africa where celebrities were pranked by comedian Toll Ass Mo and his team of “outlawz”, which included Lasizwe. He’s also an activist for the LGBTQ community, partnering with Anova Health Institute’s Young Heroes, an NGO that seeks to educate and protect the rights of the LGBTQ community.
The showbiz gene is also in the family. Lasizwe is the younger brother of actress and socialite Khanyi Mbau. The two are often seen together and the resemblance is clear – and not just in the bubbly personality either. On Fake it Till You Make It, you’ll see how he copes with criticism and conflict, makes business decisions, prepares for some of the country’s top social soirées and navigates family dynamics.
