Musician Kelly Khumalo has revealed that she was shooting her highly anticipated reality show when Covid-19 came along and ruined her plans.

The show, Life With Kelly, was announced late last year and set to premiere at the beginning of this year.

Speaking to Afternoon Express this week, Kelly said the reality show was quite far along before production ground to a halt.

“It's just been crazy. To begin with, we had to cancel a lot of plans ... we had an album that was supposed to come out during this month, we had just released a Kelly Khumalo gin and we were shooting a reality show so we had to put a pause to all of that.”

While her album and reality show are on ice, Kelly has been teasing her Controversy gin range, which she plans to sell en masse when the lockdown is done.

Kelly is not the only one whose planning for a TV reality show has been put on ice during this pandemic. Media personality Bonang Mathe also revealed that she had a TV programme that was supposed to come out this month.

Speaking on Afternoon Express, Bonang said, “Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, I had a new TV show that was supposed to start in May and I also had my Prestige Brut House of BNG that was supposed to have launched in March, so all of that had to be kind of cancelled.”
