Wherever you see her older sister Kelly Khumalo, she is also there.

She was even referred to as Kelly’s sidekick. But 25-year-old Zandie insists she is her own woman.

“Kelly and I are more like the Mary Mary (a popular American gospel duo) sisters. There’s no comparison and definitely no competition. We are there to support each other,” Zandie says, adding that people should judge her on what she does - her new music.

Her single Themba is on all radio stations and she is in the midst of completing her much-anticipated album. “I did not see it coming. One minute I was in studio and next minute the song was all over radio. I’m very grateful,” she says.

Zandie, who opened up her new posh marital home in Sandton to DRUM, recently married Hloni Gumede, a communications manager at Mabala Noise Entertainment.

“Married life is great. He’s a loving guy, supportive and appreciative. I’m a happy woman. He’s hilarious and I get his jokes. I wouldn’t have married him if it wasn’t for that,” she beams. However, she says they are in no hurry to have kids. Currently, she adds, “my career is the priority”.
