Coconut Kelz

The media personality made her comedic debut at Melville Comedy Club a few years ago on her show titled, The Coconut Show and has been trending and making waves since.

This is what she said about her alter-ego: "I didn't do the character for any kind of career in the comedy scene; I just did it for my Facebook friends. So, it's awesome to see how it's grown and is my main career now, which I never expected. Kelz is going to be everywhere, so everyone who hates her needs to turn off their TVs because I am going to be everywhere.”

She’s also had to defend herself against trolls on social media who deemed her to be either “mocking black people or a whiteface comedian or a young white woman trapped in a black woman's body.”

The satirist is also a writer, besides acting, and has appeared on numerous channels such as ETV's morning show and Tlhabi's BET specials which used to air weekdays on BET Africa channel 129.
