Expect more Kelly Khumalo drama in S2


IT’S not often we get to see sequels to celeb-anchored reality shows. When that happens, best you remember it’s because the subject matter resonates with viewers. And they do wonders for ratings.

It also explains why Living the Dream with Somizi has been renewed for several seasons.

I loved the first season of Life with Kelly Khumalo. Much of the appeal also lies with The Barleader for their first-rate production value. They ensured the narrative was aligned with public curiosity.

After all, the questions around the untimely passing of Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa, who is the baby daddy of her daughter, Thingo, remains a talking point.

The first season was shot in lockdown. There were plenty of restrictio­ns and Khumalo was feeling frustrated about being confined to her luxurious home.

Season two provides a few closures. But there’s plenty of drama.

I also want to know more about her comment: “I’m not in a relationsh­ip; I am playing with someone.”

The first episode will be available on Showmax from Thursday.
