Kelly Khumalo’s team has spoken out about the backlash the singer received after her guest judging gig on Idols SA this past Sunday.
While a lot of people focused on her skills both as a singer and a judge, others were not so kind.
Kelly was dragged all of Sunday and Monday, not only for her “unbleached” armpits, but also by people saying the country is still waiting for answers as to who killed Senzo Meyiwa.
Speaking to TshisaLive, her team said that Kelly is trying to move forward.
“The social media response that we witnessed was definitely positive. We witnessed a lot of messages on social media about how well Kelly was doing as a guest judge on the Idols panel‚ there were mostly compliments towards Kelly where people were praising her voice‚ her music knowledge and her beauty of course.
“There are a handful of people who are obviously trying to get attention or trying to get retweets using the negativity that we are all moving forward from. Kelly is not worried about it and is choosing not to focus on the negativity,” said Kelly’s manager, Linda Moeketsi.
