The steamy picture of the two power musicians left many wondering what kind of relationship Kelly Khumalo and Vusi Nova share. Vusi revealed in an exclusive interview with TshisaLIVE he and Kelly are bonded by their love… for music.
Vusi squashed the rumours that he and fellow singer Kelly Khumalo are romantically linked. The singer said that they have been good friends for a while.
“No man, there is nothing going on, we [are] just really cool friends,” he said.
The Ndikuthandile singer explained the pair have even recorded a song together on Vusi Nova’s previous album.
“I have known Kelly for ages and we recorded a song together (Baby) that made it to my previous album. Many don’t know the song because the album didn’t do so well. But people that know the song love it to bits. I love the song. Kelly loves the song. So we share the love for music,” he said.
When TshisaLIVE enquired about the steamy picture Vusi laughed it off as “just fun times with friends”.
He also added that the recent flirty posts about Kelly were just because they’re working on even more music together.
“We plan on doing another song together. It’s going to be ridiculous and we just thought we are going to do this for our fans,” he said.
His recently shot the music video for Ndikuthandile, which features a star studded cast including Kelly Khumalo, Khanyi Mbau, Somizi, Kwela Tebza members and Dr. Malinga. He added that he was grateful that they were willing to support him, as it is rare in the industry.
“I have known Somizi for 12 years and Khanyi since our varsity days, so even though it was difficult [with all our different schedules] we pulled it off and it was so much fun,” he said.
