Ms Shally’s real name is Shaleen Manhire Nullens.
She was born on 26 October 1987.
She is married to a Belgian named Eric Nullens.
Ms Shally has a daughter named Zoe.
She graduated with an accounting degree from the University of South Africa. In 2014 a publication reported that she was studying towards an MBA.
Ms Shally started by working in her father’s business at the age of 14.
Her first job was as a tea girl for her father’s Zimbabwe-based consulting firm. She moved up to a role as a typist, then to his personal assistant by the time she was just 16.
It was a family setback that caused her to think about entrepreneurship. Her father had a stroke in 2010 and his business began to falter, and while his hospital bills were mounting, his company’s revenue was dropping. The family sold off all of their cars and withdrew money from their savings. She took over her father’s responsibilities at work to keep the company running, but it was hard. His clients knew her because she had been working for him since she was 14, but they only wanted him to oversee the projects. They only felt comfortable with him on board and when he was incapacitated, they cancelled their contracts.
She bankrolled her first business L’eau Choisie, which is a bottled still water brand based in Zimbabwe and South Africa, by working side jobs together with her husband.
Ms Shally led a team that hosted the first-ever African Leaders 4 Change Awards (ALCA).

In December 2020, social media reports circulated that Ms Shally was left homeless after being sent packing by Ginimbi’s ex-lover Zodwa Mkandla. At the time Ms Shally was living in Ginimbi’s Domboshava mansion. In a post on Instagram, she denied the claims and said:
