South African singer Kelly Khumalo faced a storm of sorts following what many consider to be her homophobic comments. The songstress was seemingly snubbed at the South African Music Awards and was miffed that Ntokozo Mbambo received the award instead of her.
She had gone on a rant soon after, leaving some of her fans shocked and some supporting her. Of course. Some called her out for her action, including one particular X user. She would later direct some fire in the user’s direction, leading to accusations of homophobia.
In response to the said user, the “Dance Comigo” singer has noted: “Sit down, Aunty, the day you decide whether you’re a man or a woman then we can talk.” Many X users considered her words homophobic and they called her out for it, forcing her to not only delete the tweet but to apologise as well.

Ngonile with my homophobic remarks ngiyaxolisa that was uncalled for.
Despite the apology, she made it clear that she has no regrets and certainly isn’t taking her word back about the South African Music Awards. By the way, this isn’t the first time the awards has provoked criticisms from those who did not win, though. it has happened multiple times in the past.
