Kelly Khumalo recently took to social media to share a new milestone. Her song Empini has been the best Afro-pop/soul song on the charts for seven weeks straight now. The star shared the graphic from The Othority on Instagram.
The Othority keeps track of what jams are trending and being streamed the most in Mzansi. Life keeps getting better and better for Kelly.
It would come as a relief for her since the case of her former lover Senzo Meyiwa has been brought back to life. Kelly has been getting a lot of media attention since the case was taken back to court. However, her fans were delighted for her for reaching this milestone.
Here are some of the comments under Kelly's post where she shared her track had been number one for seven weeks:
@ultimatelybeing.tan said: "I love this song. But why are you not performing it to promote it more? It should become an anthem."
@nkalala said: "This is a hit."
@lulukeeya said: "Halalala mama."
@NtehSibiya simply said: "Well done."
