Here’s all the juicy deets revealed on Season 3 of Life with Kelly Khumalo

The wildly popular Showmax Original series Life with Kelly Khumalo is now in it’s third season. The season premiered Tuesday 5 June and climbed to the top of the Twitter trends list before the first episode even aired.

On the show, the award-winning vocalist opens up about her personal life, including her kids and tumultuous relationships with ex’s Jub Jub and former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa who was murdered in 2014.

By the end of Season 2, Kelly said she is “washing her hands” of baby daddy Jub Jub and is done trying to build a relationship with him. She also revealed that she was three months pregnant when she found out Senzo was married, as well as the fact that she has a strained relationship with her mother.

With a cliffhanger ending after Jub Jub wished Kelly a happy Mother’s Day on Instagram, anticipation was high for what would ensue this season. Now, Twitter is abuzz for all the juicy drama of the Season 3’s first episode.

In just 25 minutes, we see Kelly give her ex, Jub Jub, the middle finger over his Mother’s Day message; bring Somizi to tears at her first gospel concert since lockdown; and complain to her bestie Wanda Baloyi about having “the sh*ttiest in-laws ever,” who she claims doubted the paternity of both her children and “went to the witchdoctor to get rid of me!”. And that’s without even mentioned the part where Kelly is told to “Go f* yourself” by a man while waiting for the lift up to Alto 234 in Sandton, the highest urban bar in Africa.

Of being accused of being involved with Senzo’s death, Kelly says: “This is not the only case that has been a failure when it comes to the South African justice system. But for some reason, because there’s Kelly Khumalo involved, we want to make it something peculiar, something that is different, something that has never happened before.”

Yet, despite mounting claims to cancel her, Kelly’s career has never been better. Her SAMA-nominated album The Voice of Africa went gold, the AFRIMA-nominated “Empini” became the biggest hit of her career and went quadruple platinum, “Esphambanweni” went double platinum and “Ngathwala Ngaye” went platinum.

“It just tells you that if you connect with people spiritually, success is inevitable, because people can relate to what you’re singing about, and they listen to your music on a daily basis,” says Kelly in a YouTube video posted by Showmax. “‘Never forget who you are, never forget how powerful you are, and never forget that you are loved, that you are supported.”

We can’t wait to see what other bombshells unfold in the upcoming episodes. Catch new episodes of Life with Kelly Khumalo every Tuesday on Showmax.
