If there’s one thing no one can deny, is that Kelly Khumalo has an amazing voice that has touched many.
Her live performances are always a sight to see and people are always in awe of her talent.
Although she’s known for her Afro-Soul music, Kelly has decided to turn to God and do things a little different lately. This was after Kelly, who was Senzo Meyiwa’s side chick yesterday confirmed that she will be releasing a gospel single titled Jehova.
The song will feature rapper and Rhythm City actor – Jesse Suntele. Kelly gave her followers a snippet of the song during a recent video she posted on Instagram.
Kelly Khumalo has always courted controversy over the years. Some have accused her of having a death and bad luck spirit following her. Almost a decade ago she dated fellow musician Jub Jub and he got jailed for murder.
Later she dated businessman and showbiz promoter Prosper Mkwaiwa and he unexpectedly died. Then in 2014 she dated Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa and he was shot dead in Kelly’s mother’s house.
Kelly Khumalo said she did everything she possibly could to save the life of her late boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa. She was speaking to fans at her Up Close and Personal with Kelly Khumalo concert in Johannesburg last year.
Kelly said she, Senzo Meyiwa and friends went to her mother’s place for Sunday lunch in Vosloorus on October 26, 2014.
“It was a great day. We were having a great day. Just as we were about to leave, there was a bang at the door and the door open3e and two guys walked in. One pointed a gun at me, demanded money and cellphones and I ran to my sister’s room. He followed me, I pushed the door, trying to close it, he pushed back and I pushed again.
“Until today I do not know why he gave up on pushing but he did for some reason,” she said.
Kelly Khumalo said while she was trying to run for her life she forgot about her children.
“Later on I realised that my children were in the house. When I opened the door my mom, Senzo and his friends were fighting the intruders. My son watched it all happen,” she said.
She said during the scuffle she heard two gunshots and immediately went to the other room to check her son.
“Then Senzo ran into my hands. I thought he was trying to protect me from the intruders but he had blood on his chest and back; that’s when I knew he had been shot.
“We couldn’t even wait for the ambulance to arrive. We rushed him to hospital. I did everything I could. I didn’t want him to think I gave up on him,” she said, sobbing.
Senzo Meyiwa was a Bafana Bafana goalkeeper and captain and one of the most beloved soccer players in the country.
His killers are still at large.
