- Kelly Khumalo has lashed out at the Crown Gospel Awards after she lost out of a win in her category
- The singer was nominated for Best Gospel Song for her track Esphambanweni with Hlengiwe Mhlaba
- Social media users had mixed reactions to Kelly Khumalo's outburst
Kelly Khumalo has slammed the Crown Gospel Awards after she lost out in the category that she was nominated in. In a now-deleted Instagram post, Khumalo slammed the event for giving the Best Gospel Song Award to Canaan Nyathi instead of her.
The aggrieved singer also demanded to know if her fans voted for her, asking:
“Bomakhelwane nivotile noma? (Neighbours, did you vote for me or?)"
Canaan Nyathi walked away with the prestigious award for his song 'Baba Ziveze' and Khumalo felt that he was not deserving. She acknowledged that she looked like a "sore loser" but did not care. Taking to Twitter she posted:
“Esphambanweni Vs Baba Ziveze? Someone please balance me? I would have been okay with Jehova uzoyigcina impilo yami or Bawo Yiba nathi bazalwane musani ukuganga ngathi."
Social media users weighed in on her tantrum with mixed reactions.
Twitter user Mathobelasbonga said:
"I don’t even know loyo Baba Ziveze wakhona ai."
"Baba Ziveze is a beautiful song. But truth be told it can't be compared to Esiphambanweni. Those awards must just be cancelled. We've been complaining for years now."
"Canaan Nyathi - Baba Ziveze is a jam sesi. Ask your fans ukuthi why didn't they vote."
"Brown envelopes Kelly, I saw that too. Mncimm.kanjani nje!"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Kelly Khumalo has been exposed for allegedly lying about her age. The songstress is reportedly 38 years old this year. The musician had claimed that she was 35 years old when she celebrated her birthday last year.
Briefly.co.za noticed that even the stunner's internet biography states that she was born in November, 1984. Kelly was born on 11 November, 1982. This is according to court papers filed by Nedbank at the Johannesburg High Court.
The bank wants the court to give it an order to repossess her Porsche after her alleged failure to pay her vehicle instalment. The Empini hitmaker celebrated her birthday last week but she did not mention the year she was born in as she kept using the hashtag #11/11 on Instagram.
