The businesswoman took to her Instagram account to launch her T-shirt merchandise with the writing: “Mabusi vibes only”.

It would come as no surprise if she received business advice from her friend and former cast member, Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco, who sells T-shirts with her famous quote “Google me” after the ladies asked her in the first season who she was in a relationship with.

In the third season, although Mbusi did not feature, her name did when viewers found out that Nonku Williams told Slee Ndlovu that she picked up “Mabusi vibes” from Mbali Ngiba.

The phrase had the cast and viewers all wondering what it exactly meant until Mbali threatened to beat up Nonku over it — to which A2B Winery owner said: “That’s the Mabusi vibe. You’ll beat me up? That’s exactly what I meant.”

In a statement in January, Mabusi, through Pears Communication on Instagram she announced that Let It Rain Film — the company behind Real Housewives of Durban — had informed her that there would not be any filming with her in the third season.

“As Real Housewives of Durban embarks on its third successful season, I would love to enlighten you all that unfortunately will not be part of the phenomenal Season 3 of Real Housewives of Durban cast.

“Let It Rain Films’ informed me that ‘It doesn’t look like there will be any filming with you in S3’.”

“I thank ‘Let It Rain Films’ for the great opportunity and understand that as a friend to the show, my position was never guaranteed.

“To ShowMax, thank you for all the support you showed me and look forward to working with you all in the near future!

“It truly was a lovely journey to travel, being given this platform to create good television to inspire and aspire young aspiring females was truly a blessing hold dear to my heart!” Mabusi concluded.
