Kelly Khumalo surprised and delighted her fans with another victory, not the last
Kelly Khumalo may need been marred with controversy after controversy this year alone, but she gets up and dusts herself off.
She has decided to use her controversy label to form a bank but she has achieved even quite that. The Emini hitmaker has embraced the label given to her by making a wise business move which is starting her own brand of gin, called Controversy Gin by Kelly Khumalo.
The Gin brand was launched in March 2020 but has already collected it’s an extremely first accolade. The musician has announced on her Instagram that her gin won a gift at the distinguished 2020 SA Women’s Wine & Spirit Awards, walking away with a Gold award.
Thanking her team for his or her phenomenal work, Kelly took to social media to applaud them for the achievement.
The gin was only available at Makro but Kelly has announced that it’s now available on Takealot.
That’s not all…Kelly’s Empini is sitting comfortably within the favorite spot in South African music charts within the afro-pop/soul category. “This thing I’m bathing with seems to be working. no 1 song in SA for the song sixth time,” she announced.
Still, on the subject of controversy, Kelly has been accused of lying about her age, following her drama with Nedbank over unpaid car installments. consistent with Sunday World, the Esiphambwaneni hitmaker has reportedly defaulted her payments and is currently faced with R62 000 arrear fees. That’s not all, the publication also acknowledged that she is really 38 years old rather than the 36 that’s widely known.
The documents submitted so as for her car to be repossessed contain her card which states Martinmas 1982 as her birth date.
Kelly did not live up to her promise of paying for her 2011 Porsche Cayenne Tiptronic vehicle, which she purchased in March 2017 through a loan of R500 000 from Nedbank. Kelly was obligated to pay slightly below R10 000 monthly up until April 2023. This excludes insurance for the car.
After failing to stay up with such payments, Motor Finance Corporation (MFC) has managed to file papers at the Joburg supreme court, for a default judgment against Khumalo.
In July this year, Nedbank’s attorneys, DRSM Attorneys wrote a letter of demand to Kelly, instructing her to ante up and keep her account up so far. In August, the agreement was canceled after Kelly did not answer the letter.
