Without revealing further details, Duma told TshisaLive, she’s not opening a crèche but confirmed that there is something “brewing with Sibahle Siyakhula”, and it has something to do with kids.

“I was shocked when I saw the stories. I mean, a whole me opening a créche. It's definitely something, and it's coming soon, and when it's ready, I will speak about it,” she told the publication.

Taking to her Instagram page this week, “The Queen” actress told her fans she’s venturing into the world of beauty with the launch of her “first kiddies hair salon”.

“I’m so ECSTATIC and PROUD to announce the opening of my first kiddies salon. My dream of so many years finally becomes a reality,” shared the star.

In her post, Duma explained that the new venture was inspired by her daughter, Sbahle Mzizi.

“Named and inspired by its namesake, my precious daughter @sbahlemzizi and on a mission to provide niche and bespoke hairdressing services to tiny tots and young people.

And there’s more, Sbahle Siyakhula is set to create employment opportunities for the local creative community.

“And we are looking for vibrant people to join our team! Keep a look out on our page @sbahlesiyakhula for more information. Yours in beauty, Sbahle siyakhula🤍.”
