South African singer Elaine — real name Ndivhuwo Elaine Mukheli — impressed many with her strong voice and amazing song writing capabilities. Her hit songs You’re The One and Risky catapulted her to the top of song charts and South Africans were certain that she was going to make it big.

Unfortunately, things have quieted down considerably for the singer who is now being compared to Tyla who is basically a local born international star.

In fact, some are even saying that Elaine is down and out after she shared that she now does floral arrangements.

This wasn’t the case for the singer who is now apparently selling rose bouquets to make a living. The business venture is called Lainey’s Flowers and has not officially been launched.

Taking to Instagram, she shared one of her flower creations which was then shared on X by a disappointed fan.
