Kuli Roberts’ most stand-out fashion moments

Actress, media personality and seasoned journalist Kuli Roberts has passed away. The announcement was made on Thursday 10 February after she died on Wednesday night.

Her family released a statement on social media saying: “It is with profound regret and sadness that we confirm the untimely passing of our dear daughter, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt Nomakula ‘Kuli’ Roberts (49). She sadly passed away late last night (10th February) in Johannesburg. Affectionately known and loved by her friends, family, and the South African entertainment industry at large, Kuli Roberts was an all-round media personality who was always the life of any gathering.

“Her love for family, friends, work and very importantly, her community is well known. Kuli leaves behind her two children, her beloved grandchild, her parents and three siblings.

“We humbly request that you respect our need for privacy as we go through this difficult period of grieving and healing. We ask that you please keep us in your prayers,” read the statement.

Roberts was known for her infectious personality and vibrant interviewing style. Her voice transcended demographics and she stood up for various marginalised groups, including the LGBTQ+ community and people living with albanism. Her vivacious character extended to her fashion sense too, and she was regularly seen in bold, stylish ensembles.
