Kelly Khumalo, the renowned South African media personality, finds herself under a relentless barrage of criticism on social media, a storm that erupted with the resurgence of the Senzo Meyiwa trial. This iconic star, due to the controversy surrounding the case, was swiftly removed from the lineups of two prominent events. Yet, Kelly has managed to remain a prominent figure, busily engaged, and fiercely responding to those who challenge her.
However, amid this uproar, she has not engaged with social media users who are now taking her to task for her attire during her gospel performances.
Kelly Khumalo, a local songbird, has endured a turbulent period since the Senzo Meyiwa trial resurfaced. The trial has rekindled the demands of Senzo Meyiwa’s fans, seeking answers regarding his tragic 2014 demise at their Vosloorus residence. Which had initially been reported as a home invasion. Shockingly, the trial exposed Kelly’s communication with at least one of the suspects implicated in the murder.
In the wake of these revelations, two event organizers publicly declared her removal from their artist lineups. Now, the social media sphere is ablaze with criticism regarding the outfits she adorns during her gospel performances.
This contentious issue emerged when she shared a video of herself clad in a bodysuit and fur coat, with nothing but heels and pantyhose underneath. The attire choice provoked a swift and vigorous backlash from social media users. Who questioned the appropriateness of her attire when singing gospel.
One individual commented, “We will definitely remember you as the woman who gave zero f*cks, sana. You praised God with or without clothes because it is the heart that matters, sana.”
However, amidst this storm, her long-time friend and fellow luminary, Somizi, has stood steadfastly by her side. The former Idols SA judge enthusiastically shared a promotional poster announcing Kelly Khumalo’s performance at his event. “50 Shades of Pink.” Somizi also expressed his excitement in the comment section of Kelly’s Instagram post, where she had shared the event poster.
In the face of the relentless scrutiny and criticism from local social media users. Who believe she possesses crucial knowledge about the events surrounding Senzo’s tragic evening, Kelly has not held back. She has unleashed a series of responses and counterarguments on her social media platform.
In one post, she defiantly asserted that she harbors no fear and that she will invariably emerge victorious. This resolute stance exemplifies Kelly Khumalo’s indomitable spirit and her determination to continue pursuing her path, despite the controversies that continually surround her.
