Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa has been hard at work, crafting an all-new persona for herself since her split with DJ Black Coffee which went public towards the end of 2019. 

The petite actress has always been a hard worker, acting in top productions and citing Rockville and The Throne as film projects that she can be proud of. 

Designing Beyonce showstopper

When Beyonce and Jay Z performed as the headline act at the Global Citizen Festival in December 2018, Mlotshwa collaborated with design duo Quiteria and George to create a gown for Queen B which she wore as her showstopper for the concert. 

However, since splitting from Black Coffee, Mlotshwa’s star has begun to shine even more brightly. In the months following their separation, the 31-year old has upped the ante on her career, bagging a magazine cover, fashion line and a new TV character.

We look at the details of all these fascinating projects.  

Bloss magazine cover 

Clad in a yellow suit, Mlotshwa dished the details to Bloss magazine on her personal life and vision for 2020 which includes being the best mother she can be to her two sons that she shares with Black Coffee.

“I think this year was the year to clean up problems with regards to relationships. I’ve managed to clean up relationships that were toxic, relationships that weren’t serving me and relationships that were preserving only themselves and nothing else. I’ve had to relearn to be okay with losing people,” she said. 

The magazine is the first cover for the media personality since her newly single status. 

New TV role 

On Instagram, the videocast host announced that she was working on a new production and TV role. While she was scant on the details she did upload a short video of herself in character.

Actor Thabo Rametsi paid tribute to Mlotshwa’s acting skills recently, backing her skills as a thespian and alluding to her appearing in an international feature. 

“Honestly @enhlembali_ is one of the best actors I have had the privilege to direct performance for. Great with accents, amazing depth, great with dialogue and an action hero level of physicality. Having directed her auditions for international work I feel like she isn’t tested nearly enough artistically. She is also filled with kindness and a strong work ethic. Looking forward to directing her in a feature one day,” he wrote. 

New fashion line 

Essie’s Apparel was launched without much fanfare save for a few posts on social media.

However, Mlotshwa’s fashion range is making major waves internationally with it covered in fashion bible Vogue Italia. The collection secured a magazine spread which has received great feedback so far.
