Kelly Khumalo Slammed For Homophobic Statement Apology

Netizens slam Mzansi singer Kelly Khumalo for her homophobic statement apology and tell her they know she isn’t sorry.

Singer and reality star Kelly Khumalo has been trending heavily across social media since the 29th South African Music Awards aired. The award show saw Gospel star Ntokozo Mbambo score three wins at the event, including Best Female Artist of the Year.

Controversial figure Kelly Khumalo, known for her award loss reactions, took to social media to call out the awards organisers for rigging it. Khumalo lost the Best Afropop Album to Sjava and Best Female Artist of the Year to gospel sensation Ntokozo Mbambo.

But the singer was not going down without a fight. Her comments were slammed by fans criticizing her for being a sore loser. An LGBTQ fan tried to advise her, but Kelly referred to the fan as an “aunty.”

She wrote,

“Sit down, Aunty, the day you decide whether you’re a man or a woman then we can talk.”

The “Empini” singer has since deleted the tweet and apologised,

“Ngonile (I have sinned) with my homophobic remarks ngiyaxolisa (I am sorry) that was uncalled for.”

However, fans did not believe her apology was sincere. Amza_5 wrote, “Folding is not your thing & awusabi fokol. What happened? Did Dominic threaten you?” @lelo_kgoale also reacted, “This is not even a genuine apology.”
