The past year and a half has been a busy one for South African musician Kelly Khumalo. Not only has she launched her own brand of gin and two successful seasons of a popular Showmax reality show, but Kelly has also appeared as a judge on SABC1’s Stand Up SA and will soon appear on e.tv’s House of Zwide

According to the channel, Kelly makes an entrance and demands only the best from the team at House of Zwide. This is not her first stint on e.tv as she previously played the character Sunay on Rhythm City.

The channel also crowned the show “e.tv’s number one watched show in South Africa” in the 7pm slot. 

Kelly comes to the show because she needs an exquisite dress from the House of Zwide range for an event she plans to attend the following day, along with her flamboyant right-hand designer – J’adore.

If fans are curious about whether or not the design team can find her something to wear, e.tv urges them to tune in.
