For the past few weeks, Afro-pop singer Kelly Khumalo divided South Africa’s opinion when her deceased boyfriend, Senzo Meyiwa, was murdered at her home in Vosloorus, Ekurhuleni – with some blaming her for the tragic death of Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana captain while others comforted her.
21 days after the father of her daughter, Thingo, was laid to rest, the 30-year-old mother-of-two, who is currently promoting her album Back To My Roots, thanked her 48.3K Instagram followers and those who supported her through the death of Senzo.
“Growing up as little girl I never thought I’d be loved by so many, so deeply, yet it still amazes and humbles me,I can’t help but feel highly blessed, with all my scars, fears and imperfection I stand tall, proud and undefeated not because I’m invincible but because ALL of YOU are behind me beside me, everywhere I go I’m surrounded by love and support, those positive msgs, all of you fighting tooth and nail to protect me, my vicious brothers and sisters, omama nobaba who randomly stop at the side of the road just to give me a huge hug, I can see all of you waiting at the finishing line shouting come on Kelly you CAN DO IT! Yes I CAN cause all of YOU believe I can. Love and light. Thank you Kelly Khumalo”
