In other celebrity-related news, Briefly.co.za recently reported on Kelly Khumalo urging her fans not to vote for her for in an upcoming awards ceremony.
Kelly Khumalo is one of the nominees in the upcoming KwaZulu-Natal Entertainment Awards. The songstress is nominated in the Best Female Artist category. Kelly is nominated in the same category with musicians such as her sister Zandie Khumalo, Nomcebo Zikode, Zanda Zakuza, Babes Wodumo and Holly Rey, among others. The winner of the category will bag a trophy and R100 000.
While other artists are urging their fans to vote in their numbers, Kelly has decided to do the exact opposite. She told a fan on Twitter on Tuesday, 8 December not to waste her money by voting for her. The tweep had asked the singer if they should vote for the star or not. Kelly replied:
"Don't waste your money there."
Other tweeps took to Kelly Khumalo's comments section to share that they've already voted for her. Kelly has one of the hottest songs in Mzansi currently titled Empini. The song is doing well on music streaming platforms and on radio stations but she doesn't want people to vote for her to win in the KZN Entertainment Awards. The star did not give any reason why her fans should not vote for her.
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that the aim of the KwaZulu-Natal Entertainment Awards is to honour entertainers who've made a name for themselves in KZN and continue to shine everywhere. The prestigious event is expected to take place on 15 December at the Durban ICC. World-renowned DJ Black Coffee, DJ Tira, Sjava and Somizi, among others, are just some of Mzansi's celebs who attended the launch of the event on Thursday, 15 October.
