Musician Kelly Khumalo views her reality show Life With Kelly Khumalo as an act of self-empowerment and owning her truth.

Season 2 of 'Life With Kelly Khumalo' Is Back

Much to the delight of fans, Kelly Khumalo recently announced that her wildly popular, SAFTA-nominated reality show Life With Kelly Khumalo will air from May 13.

Following the success of Life With Kelly Khumalo Season 1, which recently earned a South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) nomination for "Best Soap Structured Reality TV Show", the second season will soon be upon us.

Season 2 of Like With Kelly Khumalo promises to be more riveting, especially with Kelly's love life being on the spotlight once again. After her widely publicised breakup with Chad Da Don, the mother of two reveals that she's still keen to partake in the love game. Fans can also anticipate a closure conversation between Kelly and her mother Ntombi Khumalo, after she's previously dodged questions about the award-winning singer's paternity. Their mother-daughter relationship was already strained due to Kelly and her younger sister Zandile Khumalo's ongoing feud. Season 2 also traces Kelly's journey to overcoming a trail of unfortunate events surrounding her public life.

Kelly has professed that the reality show is an act of self-empowerment and owning her truth. "What I've learnt is that it gives me power to own my story. No one can ever use my story against me because I have owned it. This is me, who I am, whether good or bad". Since the Season 1 premiere in 2020, Kelly has launched her eighth studio album "The Voice of Africa", featuring the hit single 'Empini', which racked up nearly seven million views on YouTube alone.

Season 2 of Life With Kelly Khumalo will air from Thursday, May 13 with new episodes scheduled for Tuesdays. All 13 second season episodes will be available for binge-streaming, on Showmax, from August 5, 2021.
