Kelly's award is a sliver of good news after what many may call a terrible run in the public. She and her sister, Zandie Khumalo, came face to face with cancel culture as their shows were cancelled due to pressure from the public for the sisters' shows to be cancelled due to the ongoing trial of Senzo Meyiwa's murder. However, some shows did show support for the Qinisela singer. The All4Women Music Concert confirmed that she will still perform at the event after being dropped from the Tribute to Women and Maseru Jazz Festival line-ups.

Zandile, on the other hand, spewed fire and slammed cancel culture for making her and her siblings' lives miserable.
