Kelly Khumalo has been through a lot in her life - she's been dragged and scrutinised so much that South Africans actually started feeling sorry for her.

The true story is set to be released later this year, Briefly.co.za gathered.

If sources close to the production are to be believed, Somizi Mhlongo's daughter with Palesa Madisakwane, Bahumi, will be playing the role of young Lebo while Kelly will be Lebo as an adult.

As of yet, neither of the women have confirmed their roles, likely because of non-disclosure agreements. Vice President of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa's BET, Youth & Music, Monde Twala, did not want to deny or confirm the involvement of Kelly and Bahumi.

The biopic will be a 6-part BET Africa drama series.
