The South African Embassy in France also welcomed the actress and presenter Lesego Tlhabi aka Coconut Kelz who moved to Paris this weekend.

The embassy wrote on their Instagram story: “A warm welcome to the award-winning South African satirist, Lesego Tlhabi, who moved to France today.”

The actress and comedienne also took to her Instagram stories to share photos and videos of herself and her mother wining and dining in Paris, France this weekend, though it is unclear at this stage why she left South Africa.

“I just want to put it out there that I’ve watched only 5 minutes of season one, episode one of Emily in Paris and hated it. So, I don’t get any of your references,” joked Tlhabi on her Instagram on Monday, 21 August.

She also bumped into Siya Kolisi’s wife Rachel Kolisi at the airport, who also moved to Paris on Saturday, 19 August with her children.

Rachel wrote on her Instagram story: “Happened to bump into Lesego Tlhabi coming off the plane this morning. (She definitely left something behind. Our girl was running back to the plane like the wind). She’s also moving to Paris, our girl nailed day one.”

The award-winning content producer Lesego Tlhabi, who is popularly known as Coconut Kelz recently secured her dream gig of presenting The Great South African Bake Off.

Tlhabi, who co-hosts the baking show with Glen Biderman-Pam revealed to Bona that she’s been a big Bake Off fan since the first British version and has watched all the South African seasons as well.

“When I saw the tent, I think that was probably the best experience for me. When I got there on the first day, it was very much like being in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. It was very wow!”

She adds that being on a show that she’s watched for several years and wanted to be a part of for a very long time is probably a highlight.
