Kelly Khumalo is an “age cheat”

The legal showdown between afro-pop singer Kelly Khumalo and Nedbank over her failure to pay her vehicle instalments has resolved a decade long enigma surrounding her real age.

Sunday World can exclusively reveal that Khumalo, according to the papers filed by the bank in the Joburg High Court for an order to repossess her Porsche, was born on November 11 1982.

This was according her identity document number appearing on the vehicle sale agreement contract entered into by the musician and the bank in 2017.

This means the talented songbird turned 38 last week. The startling discovery of her real age embarrassingly flies in the face of claims that she was born in 1984 and turned 35 last year.

Khumalo argued after realizing her hit song Qinisela in 2005 that she was born in 1984. Even her internet biography states that.

In November last year, Khumalo, who has just released hit single Empini, celebrated her ‘35th birthday’ shindig in Joburg. Pictures of the chanteuse, immaculately dressed in a stunning gold number by La Principessa Bridal Wear, with the caption “#HerRoyalHighnessTurns35” flooded social media platforms with her legion of her fans and supporters showering her with birthday wishes.

Khumalo couldn’t be reached for comment at the time of going to print as she ignored our phone calls and text messages sent to her.
