Shauwn Mkhize and Andile Mpisane have been rather busy on social media.

The mother and son duo, the former being the owner of Royal AM and the latter its CEO, were on the opposite ends of the spectrum sports-wise for a change on their respective Instagram pages.

MaMkhize nailed her colours to the mast as far as who she supports in the NBA, enjoying a single game of basketball decked out in the colours of the Atlanta Hawks.

She wrote in a post:

"Taking a small break from soccer and joining the “six foot” gang on the basketball court. @slabmmg I am ready for our next one on one This really reminds me of my tomboy days. One thing about me, I easily adapt to any situation. Put me on a soccer field and I’ll score a goal, put me on a basketball court and I’ll take a free throw! That’s what keeps me going. "
"Get too comfortable and you lose sight of the ball/prize.Have a great Thursday fam. #MyWorldMyRules #ProudZuluGirlOnTheMove #Kwamamkhize #MaMkhize"

Elsewhere, Mpisane was snapped hard at work in training with Thwihli Thwahla. His fluctuating fortunes as CEO-slash-player have always been a source of interest for observers.

He simply wrote:

"Stay positive, work hard. ⚽️"

MaMkhize shows off football skills

South Africa's most flamboyant football owner was at it again.

The popular and headline-grabbing owner of Royal AM, Shauwn Mkhize showed off her footballing skills during a practice as the team prepared for a match in Cape Town.

Her Instagram story showed her enjoying a kick-about at a practice session in the Mother City, as Thwihli Thwahla prepared to take on Cape Town City. The Citizens would eventually run out 2-1 victors over their KwaZulu-Natal guests.

MaMkhize hurt by fan trolling

Someone once famously said that football will 'kill you a real death', and Mkhize continues to learn that the hard way as the owner of Royal AM.

After the highs of defeating KwaZulu-Natal rivals, AmaZulu 2-0 the weekend before in a derby, another KZN rival Maritzburg United brought Thwihli Thwahla back down to earth with a 3-1 crash the following Sunday. During this loss to United, rival supporters at the Chatsworth Stadium made it a point to sing rude songs aimed at MaMkhize.

She then went on to social media to express her hurt at being abused by these fans.
