Former Miss Teen SA, Celeste Khumalo, has joined SABC 1 soapie, Generations: The Legacy. The star will play Bulelwa, a human rights lawyer who is at the centre of a race row between Smanga (Moopi Mothibeli) and Joshua (Sean Brebnor).
In a statement from the show, Celeste shared her excitement at joining the show saying in part: “I’m ecstatic! This is a big move for myself and my career and I’m looking forward to the work.”
Speaking on her role, she said: “I love the fact that she’s a working woman who looks good, does good and stands her ground.”
Celest will make her Generations: The Legacy debut on Wednesday, 10 July.
She will be playing a feisty human rights lawyer by the name of Bulelwa Jafta. “Meet Bulelwa Jafta a Human Rights Lawyer with a whole lot of fire, fashion and fiduciary!” she posted.
“I’m ecstatic! This is a big move for myself and my career and I’m looking forward to the work. I love the fact that she’s a working woman who looks good, does good and stands her ground,” she said.
Generations: The Legacy publicist Nandipha Pantsi says Bulelwa enters into a storyline that once again puts the spotlight on racism in corporate South Africa and the media. Things become very tense between Smanga and Bulelwa when they disagree on how to deal with what Smanga believes is blatant racism.
Celeste will make her debut appearance on the show on Wednesday 10 July 2019.
