Kelly Khumalo has shown her support to her close friend Somizi Mhlongo as she declines the offer to be present at the Zimbabwe-based gig.
This is coming after Somizi was blocked from visiting Zimbabwe after church protest due to his sexuality.
The church and political party Zanu-PF allegedly sent a letter to the president’s office blocking him from attending an event he was booked to appear at as a guest chef for the reopening of a leading restaurant on November 4.

The restaurant proprietor, Mandy Mvukwe-Chimhini, confirmed the news saying that the Empini singer was booked for the event.
Kelly’s manager Khothatso Tsotetsi said that the singer received the same booking after his cancellation.
However, she had no idea what had led to Somizi being blocked when they were initially approached.
He added that after they caught wind of the Somizi debacle they distanced themselves from the event and declined the offer
