- Mzansi musician Kelly Khumalo is the queen of good music and she knows it
- The media personality recently took to social media to celebrate her new song Ngathwala Ngaye reaching one million views
- The song kicked off on a controversial note after people questioned the odd title she chose
Kelly Khumalo’s personal life may have a few hits and misses but her professional life is on a winning streak.
The singer’s new song Ngathwala Ngaye has hit one million views on YouTube and Kelly could not be happier. The singer took to Instagram to share the accomplishment.
Instagram users congratulated her on the achievement and complimented the saucy video.
Insta user winniezandile said:
"I love you sis Kelly."
"This song is fire, love you Kelly."
"Congratulations Ma Khumalo."
"My ring tone."
"Kelly's music evolves."
The song created a bit of scandal when it was first released due to its suggestive name. Kelly Khumalo just can't stay away from controversy. The title of her new song is Ngathwala Ngaye, which has rubbed many social media users up the wrong way.
Although the song is an innocent love ballad, the title has a double meaning which many believe alludes to Senzo Meyiwa's murder.
In the isiZulu language, 'ukuthwala' refers to the killing of a person for the purpose of using their sacrifice to attain wealth using dark magic. However, in the context of the song, the term refers to being head-over-heels in love.
The ambiguity has left many social media users fuming. Twitter user NtokoGift said:
"Ooh ngoSenzo nkos yami."
"This title is too disturbing."
"This title is unsettling kodwa ke."
"Actually this chick is admitting something here."
"Your songs don't sound the same ever since the Senzo incident."
Meanwhile, Briefly News 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 claimed that she was 35 years old when she celebrated her birthday last year.
