Trippin' With Skhumba: In conversation with Celeste Ntuli

20/04/2019

Throughout the season, Skhumba and his friends travelled all over the country, visiting famous comedians' hometowns so we can learn more about our favourite celebs.

Trippin' With Skhumba is coming to an end. Last week, the team went to Bloemfontein to meet Tumi Morake's family. This week, the entire team will take to the stage in a stand-up comedy collaboration.

The finale episode was filmed back in March, and we had a chance to speak to three of the comedians, including Celeste Ntuli. During Celeste's trip, the team travelled to her hometown of eMabuyeni.

We wanted to know more about Celeste Ntuli's experience on Trippin' With Skhumba, as well as her famous Instagram videos, and what the future holds.

Celeste said filming Skumba and going back to eMabuyeni was surreal. She explained:

You know when you are trying to be someone, and trying to achieve things, you don't get the chance to look back and understand what it is that you've achieved and how far you've gone. [Looking back,] I was really happy with myself.

Favourite moment on Trippin' With Skhumba It's always hard to pick one favourite moment, but hers had to be her mother's segment on the show. Celeste said she got a sense of how her parents feel by listening to her mother's praise. She said:

For me, that was very special. Understanding that as much as I've grown, I haven't changed as much. I'm still true to myself. And with this business, it's difficult to keep that. To hear from a parent that she still regards me and still sees that young girl. Not that I don't want to grow, but the criticals of who I am are still intact.

For all the aspiring girl comedians, Celeste has the following words of encouragement:

I feel like it's our time. There's no debate. Women have to give their input in a man's world. I feel like for women who want to do comedy, it's such a freeing space because we have a lot to say. We have stories to tell. No one has had it as bad as us.

However, women are still held back in some instances. But we need to push through. Celeste explains:

It plays on our emotional intelligence and our emotional wellbeing; that we can't bask in and marvel at our own success. And we need to.

On stage stand-up versus cameras rolling We asked Celeste which scenario was more stressful: being on stage in front of an audience, or working on a reality show with the cameras rolling.
