Kelly Khumalo Cancelled from Tribute To Women Festival
The singer is expected to perform alongside the likes of Mafikizolo, Amanda Black, and Pabi Cooper on the 12th of August, but she’s been pulled out of the lineup due to updates from the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial.
Over the past few days, a state Analyst who did an investigation on the case reported that the singer contacted one of the suspects months before the Bafana Bafana goalkeeper was killed in her house by intruders.

“However, in the interest of safeguarding our festival this year, management has taken the decision to relieve Ms Khumalo of her obligations to perform at our festival this year to afford her and her team the time they require to deal with the issues emanating from the current court proceedings.”
