Singer Kelly Khumalo has hit back at gospel fans who have criticised the star and her relationship with Christianity.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the star took aim at the “Judge Judys” or gatekeepers of the gospel genre. 

“Those of you who call yourselves Christians, stop! Because you don’t even know what you go to church for. ‘Our God, Our God’, Gha! Sies! The very same God you’re talking about is the one that blesses me on a daily basis because he knows exactly who I am. I don’t try and put up a front,” said Kelly. 

She went on to remind fans that she wasn’t a gospel artist and asked haters to do her a favour by hitting that unfollow button.  

“I’m no gospel artist and I don’t wish to be. I’m perfect as I am. If you have a problem as a fan it is very simple, f****** unfollow. It is that simple!” she said.

The star often doesn’t mince her words in her rants. She recently had choice words for “Black Twitter”, accusing users of having a mob mentality and encouraging a culture of bullying others.

Kelly said to inspire kindness in children, it starts with parents’ online interactions.

“I have seen how the majority of this country endorses bullying, even giving it a name: ‘Black Twitter’. And you are surprised when your children follow in your footsteps. You are teaching them. If you want them to be kind humans, you start with being kind, even on the internet,” Kelly said. 

“Ask yourself if you are a good parent, if you are raising a bully or a kind child,” she said.
