The second season of Kelly Khumalo’s life is about to begin
The last half of the hit Showmax Original reality series Life With Kelly Khumalo is now available to binge. within the seven new episodes now available, her vocal highness promises fans “more authenticity – and more smiles this point around. It’s not necessarily a cheerful ending but you’ll see a lady who is content with where she is in her life.”
“When the season began, Kelly’s reality was introduced to the planet. Her life and her struggles were laid bare to people that knew her story only from the media,” says Olwethu Mlotshwa, who’s also directed hit reality shows like Somizi & Mohale: The Union, Kwa Mam’Mkhize and Being Bonang. “The last half of the season is where Kelly now tackles her struggles head-on and seeks answers. crammed with turmoil, Kelly seeks the reality also like freedom. How will she find it? The answers are in these new episodes. Viewers also get a glimpse into how Kelly works, with some behind-the-scenes moments together with her vocal highness.”
Here are five key talking points to seem forward to:
Introducing Christian to the Maarohanye family
The work of getting Christian get to understand his father, Molemo (Jub Jub) Maarohanye, has been an uphill battle for Kelly but, after a long-awaited breakthrough, Christian’s possible introduction to the Maarohanye family looks promising.
“We got to see his paternal grandfather regarding a ritual they need to perform as his paternal family,” explains Kelly. She is relieved that the lines of communication with the Maarohanyes are opening up for the sake of her son
A mother-daughter relationship put to the test
In the half of the season, Kelly’s mother, Ntombi Khumalo, abruptly left for KwaZulu-Natal without informing Kelly. within the last half, Ntombi and Kelly attempt to iron out their differences, but their relationship is tested once more when Kelly receives disheartening news that has her questioning her mother’s loyalty towards her.
Kelly is particularly frustrated together with her mother’s lack of communication and unwillingness to deal with and fix issues that affect the family. together with her |along with her”> together with her patience with her mother running thin, Kelly says, “I believe that what’s meant to be are going to be. and that I believe that I’ve done everything in my power to undertake and put the pieces of the puzzle together and if they aren’t getting together, there’s nothing I can do beyond this.”
Friends becoming family
During these trying times, Kelly’s friendship with Wanda Baloyi and Brenda Mtambo brings great solace to her world.
“When I check out Brenda and Wanda, my world is complete. once I mention a family that isn’t blood-related, you guys are the definition of that,” says Kelly.
What makes the singing trio’s bond so authentic is that the ease with which all of them connect on a spiritual level. Like Kelly, Brenda and Wanda also reveal the foremost vulnerable parts of themselves and are grateful for a way Kelly has always been there to catch them once they fall.
“I love that it’s a really authentic relationship,” says Wanda. “There is nothing but pure, honest realness between us.”
Kelly in therapy
In a previous couple of episodes, we see Kelly browsing a self-healing process that involves attending several therapy sessions.
When chatting with her therapist, Kelly is at her most vulnerable. She bares it all here, from her grief and despair to revealing something about Senzo Meyiwa she’s never revealed before.
You cannot help but empathize with the grief and baggage she’s been carrying for therefore long. “Society has taken my loss and used it against me. How is that fair?” asks Kelly.
A mother first
With all that’s happening around her, Kelly doesn’t lose sight of her number-one priorities, her children Thingo and Christian. Kelly decides to carry a baptism ceremony for her kids, attended by the close friends she now considers family.
From the surface looking in, at now, Kelly seems asleep with herself, albeit the peace remains a piece ongoing.
“Where to from here? I don’t know. I can only trust God for what he has future on behalf of me,” says Kelly.
