Pub­lic­ity stunt or real love?

CityPress - - News - Ler­ato Moro­tolo

If this is just a pub­lic­ity stunt, then Kelly Khu­malo and rap­per Chad Da Don – whose real name is Dono­van Chad Man­soor – are too good at it!

The jury is still out on whether the two are a real cou­ple or just want to push the sales of Khu­malo’s new song Dance Comigo and its steamy video, in which she fea­tures her new squeeze, Man­soor,

In the video, Man­soor (25) is seen bliss­fully star­ing into her eyes.

The lyrics tell of an in­ter­est­ing love story about how Man­soor has stolen Khu­malo’s heart.

“I don’t mean to be for­ward, no, no / But you make me go loco [crazy] / You looked into my eyes like you know me / You made me re­alise I am lonely,” croons Khu­malo.

The cou­ple ra­di­ate joy and are very af­fec­tion­ate in pub­lic, and have made no se­cret of their ro­mance on so­cial me­dia.

This week, they caused a stir on In­sta­gram af­ter post­ing im­ages of each other’s ini­tials, tat­tooed on their ring fingers, as a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of their en­gage­ment. Khu­malo then wrote on In­sta­gram: “I said yes.” Chad re­sponded on the same post: “I asked ... she said yes. Love you my queen.”

How­ever, the pub­lic is still con­vinced that the re­la­tion­ship is noth­ing but a pub­lic­ity stunt.

Two well-placed sources, who spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity, told City Press this week that Khu­malo might be us­ing this as a ploy to pro­mote the sales of her lat­est al­bum. “I re­ally don’t think the two are dat­ing. Know­ing Kelly, she is do­ing this as a pub­lic­ity stunt,” said one.

When con­tacted for com­ment, Khu­malo made it clear that she was not go­ing to dis­cuss her pri­vate life with the me­dia. How­ever, she added, she was open to talk­ing about her new mu­sic video.

The bub­bly song­bird con­cluded: “The mu­sic video was in­spired by the Por­tuguese cul­ture. The Por­tuguese peo­ple em­brace re­la­tion­ships, they em­brace love – and that, in essence, is what the song is about: love and just cel­e­brat­ing it.” -
