Offended Kelly Khumalo begs SAMA to remove her from list of nominees

Singer Kelly Khumalo has called out the SA Music Awards (Samas) to remove her from the nominations list, which was released on Wednesday.

With the release of the 27th annual Samas’ nominees list, Mzansi has flooded social media with their thoughts and analyses on who did or didn’t make it.

In any case, not every person is content with their gestures. After the declarations, Empini hitmaker Kelly took to Twitter to ask the awards show to eliminate her name. The star has been selected in the ‘Best Afro Pop Album’ class close by Vusi Nova, Simmy, Azania and Manu Worldstar.

“Dear Samas, I submissively ask that you eliminate my work out of what ever classification you may have designated me for. However much I regard what you do, I likewise ask that you regard my diligent effort and exertion,” composed Kelly.

Despite the fact that Kelly didn’t give an unmistakable motivation behind why she needed to revoke the nomination, the star reacted to a fan saying the Samas offended her persistent effort.

“How dare they insult my hard work like that!” said Kelly.

When contacted by TshisaLIVE, Kelly’s management said she has declined to comment.
