Her father passed away a few years ago, and the model admitted that the loss was very hard on her. When the twins discovered that their peers were having a hard time pronouncing their names, they decided to use the names Blue and Brown instead.
At a young age, Blue discovered her interest in the entertainment industry. In 2004, she featured in a magazine as the brand ambassador. Her father encouraged both she and her twin sister to learn English if they wanted to be successful in the industry.
For a long time, peers laughed at the model because of her accent, but she did not allow the mockery to extinguish her dreams.
Blue started her career in the entertainment industry as a model. She participated in the modelling show, Diamond in The Rough.

After graduating from college, she auditioned for Big Brother Mzansi and became one of the housemates in 2015. It was at Big Brother Mzansi that she gained the attention of the public and the media. She emerged 1st runner up in the show. She is now a household name in the South African entertainment industry.
