14 beautiful pictures of Winnie khumalo and her daughter Rethabile Khumalo

Even though Rethabile Khumalo's career took off after she co-founded Umlilo with DJ Zinhle and Mvzzle, she's been hustling for a long time and has opened up about how her mother Winnie Khumalo's rejection has strengthened her.

Winnie Khumalo of Live My Life fame is Rethabile's mother, and in an interview with TshisaLIVE, she described why she considers this her greatest blessing.

“I'm so happy to have Winnie Khumalo as my mother because she understands what it's like to be an artist and the ups and downs that come with it. I've seen her go through ups and downs in her career and come out on top, so I know I can and will as well.”

Long before Rethabile imagined that she'd be on one of the most played songs in Mzansi, she knew that her destiny was in music. The singer tried her luck on Idols SA and even went to The Voice.

Behind the scenes she knocked on many doors and got rejected several times. She explained that she got to a point where she was sending DMs to famous musicians hoping that one of them would give her a chance.

Being Winnie Khumalo's daughter comes with a lot of responsibility,' Rethabile says.

Following in the footsteps of her music powerhouse mother, Winnie Khumalo, comes with a lot of pressure, says Rethabile Khumalo.

When DJ Zinhle replied to her DM, she realized she had a chance.

“I've been rejected so many times by this industry that there was a time when I considered giving up and returning to school... but I didn't give up. I did free gigs and continued to do so because I enjoy music.

I'll be forever thankful to DJ Zinhle for responding to that DM and giving me a shot. “That event altered my life, and I thank God for it,” she said.

Winnie and Rethabile Khumalo, mother and daughter artists, got open about the entertainment industry as they know it, adding that while they came into the profession at various times, one thing stays the same: female entertainers' lack of unity.

Winnie became tearful when speaking with TshisaLIVE about the hopelessness she sometimes feels as an entertainer in South Africa. Winnie stated that her sleepless nights were caused by a lack of government support, a lack of structure or innovation within institutions established to benefit artists, a lack of solidarity among women, and the brokenness of black society in particular.
