Ever since Kelly Khumalo and rapper Chad da Don went public with their relationship, the two have been receiving criticism from every angle.

Briefly.co.za saw that a Mzansi based magazine, Move!, wrote a story about their relationship, it even took the front cover.

When the issue was released, Kelly was told about the story and when she saw what the headline was, she exploded.

The magazine titled the story, ‘Kelly Khumalo madly in love with Umlungu’. In a country where race is a very sensitive topic, Move! really took a big gamble here.

‘Umlungu’ is an isiZulu term for a white person, but in most cases, it is used in a rather demeaning and derogatory manner.

The enraged singer took to social media and warned the magazine that she was ‘coming’ for them. They really overstepped a very sensitive and fine line.

Fans have been very supportive and reassured Kelly that the magazine was out of line. Most people feel that it was not right for the magazine to use that label and that race should not have even been a thought.

It is because of people and corporations like Move!, that the issue of racism, is still so rife in South Africa. The longer people label one another by race, the longer the segregation will last.

You are not defined by the colour of your skin. Love knows no bounds. Mzansi needs to practise the act of ubuntu!
