Kim took to Instagram to announce the big news where she said:
The news was widely celebrated by her fans, followers and peers especially those who have followed Kim Jayde's journey from her modelling days to becoming one of Africa's most gifted red carpet and television presenters.
Kim also took a moment to thank her followers for sticking with her on her journey when she said:
"This is an appreciation post to all of YOU that followed my journey from a broke ass model living with 10 other people in a tiny room, clothes in a suitcase, no money for food at times.... to now!! Its only with your constant love, support, comments & messages that I've been able to rise in this world.. so THANK YOU! I truly LOVE You! "
The presenter has been on the up for the last three years and she is well on her way to A-list status. However, most of the work she does takes place behind the scenes. In an interview with All4Women, a South African publication, she once said that what we see on Instagram is only 10% of her hustle. She explained:
“What you see on the gram & on MTV is probably 10% of the work that I do. That’s the pretty, fun, glam side of the industry. [But] anyone that has any kind of long lasting success will tell you it’s mostly stress, hard graft and a tunnel vision sense of focus!”
With this kind of work ethic, it's only a matter of time until Kim Jayde is dominating Hollywood.
