Nandi Khumalo is an up-and-coming fashion designer, who is designing a menswear range with Felicity at the boutique. She rents a studio in the Heights.
Nandi's father is professor Khumalo, a lecturer at a local university, and her mother is the editor of a magazine. Her father has never been very supportive of her work choices, and hopes it is just a phase she is going through until she finds a more stable job.
She has been in a relationship with Sifiso, but broke it off when she realised she didn't love him, but was developing feelings for his best friend Bernard instead. However, as Nandi and Bernard are a biracial couple, their relationship is not accepted by their respective families. Nandi's father, who was very fond of Sifiso, has cut all ties with her, until she "comes to her senses" and breaks it off with Bernard. He accepts their relationship later.
Nandi loves cycling and lives for her work.
She is portrayed by Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa.
