Coconut Kelz is the comedic sensation taking South Africa by storm. Kelz is the parody persona created by Lesego Tlhabi. Kelz is sort of a white woman trapped in a black woman’s body and who isn’t afraid to flaunt her privilege and tongue-in-cheek humour regarding politics and social issues.
Tlhabi rose to fame on social media where her fiesty videos as Coconut Kelz took the internet by storm. Tlhabi went on to host her comedic debut, ‘The Coconut Show’ at Melville Comedy Club and now appears in her own shorts on BET Africa, titled ‘Coconut Kelz: The Election Special.’
