This comes after Katlego made headlines late last year amid allegations of abuse and apparent contravention of a protection order against him. A video of Katlego confessing to his estranged partner, Monique Muller, also went viral at the time.

Katlego admitted to being unfaithful to his partner but denied all allegations of abuse.

Subsequently, OUTsurance pulled all ads featuring Katlego. SABC3’s Expresso Breakfast Show suspended the star pending an investigation into the allegations.

OUTsurance confirmed to TshisaLIVE that Elana had replaced Katlego within the company’s adverts.

Head of client relations Natasha Kawulesar said they need received regeneration about Elana’s appearances within their advertisements in the past few weeks.

Elana said she is delighted to be working closely with the OUTsurance team as this isn’t their first encounter.

“I have worked with OUTsurance for several years as a billboard hoc MC and voice-over artist. I’ve always enjoyed working with their team and admire their vision and approach to marketing and the way they connect with their clients,” she said.

OUTsurance said they stand by their past statements regarding the allegations leveled against Katlego.

“As previously communicated, we might wish to provide Katlego with the space and time needed to affect this matter privately. This remains our position.”
