Over the past few months, there have been rumours that Kelly Khumalo is a traditional healer, and the musician recently poured gasoline when she posted a picture of herself wearing the gear.

Taking to Instagram, Kelly posted a snap of herself with the caption: "Makhosi."


During an interview on The Drive on Metro FM with Masechaba Ndlovu and Mo Flava last year, Kelly spoke about this spiritual part of her life. Mo Flava explained that the singer saw into his life. He shared: "... Believe it or not, Kelly has had a moment with me too in her 'gogoness', and when I told her about it a few days later she was like 'what are you talking about?'."

When asked how she manages this, she replied: "You don't manage, you just be." 

Kelly continued: "I don't choose to look into people's lives, and I don't see what I want to see, I see what I'm supposed to see, what I'm meant to see. So, the seeing part has got absolutely nothing to do with me, I'm just a messenger." 

The musician is not the only celebrity who might be a traditional healer. A couple of months ago, Mshoza shared a snap that alluded that she is also on a traditional journey. "Yes i didn't believe in such but it got to me... yes ngiya thwasa... yes i strongly believe in God by all means i pray... Thokoza gogo  bhala mabhalane keh .... it doesn't take away the fact that i am God's creation."

TV personality, Zola Hashatsi also recently confirmed that he's a sangoma.
