South African singer, Kelly Khumalo has finally opened up about her life and how she’s been coping over the last few weeks.
In a no-holds barred media briefing held at her record label, Universal Records studios in Rosebank yesterday, the singer, who often appeared emotional spoke about her latest album, Asine, triumphs and tragedy.
‘I think music has always saved me, in any situation. I’m from a Christian background and I started singing at Sunday School. Singing has become my everything. I sing when I am sad,’ she said.
Kelly recently made news headlines when her soccer star boyfriend and Bafana Bafana captain, Senzo Meyiwa was gunned down while visting her house. The news shook the entire country and even led some to blame her for the death of the skipper.
She had this to say about the Senzo incident, ‘I am not going to talk about Senzo, I am not going to talk about any issue that surrounds Senzo. I think I was Kelly Khumalo before Senzo, before anyone else and I was a musician before that,’
Clearly determined to move on with her life, the singer defiantly faced the media to attend the Feather Awards recently, saying that she had to face the world at some point, because people will talk about her regardless.
She’s also reprising her role on the Etv soapie, Rhythm City as the baddie, Sunay.
