The show was later staged in Johannesburg, Washington DC, the Edinburgh Festival, Birmingham and London.

In 2014, his one-hander stage play The Champion - which tackles domestic violence - was nominated for Best Script at the Baxter's Zabalaza Theatre Festival.

It later won him a Fleur du Cap award for Best Performance in a Revue, Cabaret or One-Person Show.

He also had a guest starring role as Tumi in an episode of the Starz pirate drama series Black Sails, in 2017.

Khayalethu landed his first starring role in television when he was cast as Soda in the M-Net drama series Reyka, a co-production between the UK and South Africa.
