Kelly Khumalo and Mzii from Rhythm City are connected in a way that you could never imagine. Songtress Kelly Khumalo and Jesse Suntele have a gospel song together that is likeable and has all the parts to be a top chat topper. Jesse Suntele is well known for his role in Rhythm City where he acts as a lawyer and also a son to Suffocate Ndlovu.
What many people might not be aware of is that Jesse Suntele is a musician of note and has a number of songs on YouTube which are really good. On the Kelly Khumalo and Jesse Suntele song, Kelly revealed that the song has been years in the making and Jesse Suntele was the perfect natural fit to do a collaboration with.
In a sit-down interview with ZAlebs, Khumalo explained that ever since she first saw Jesse competing in a talent competition that she was judging back in 2013, she knew she wanted to work with him. The competition she was referring to was the SABC 1 reality competition “When I first heard Jesse… I was like ‘yoh!’, I’m not a hip-hop person but I have this thing about talent, I can spot talent anywhere and I have always wanted him to break into the music industry,” explained Khumalo.
She said that even when she theorized the song, she had always had him in mind. Although the song has been months in the making, Khumalo believes whole-heartedly in timing and feels as though this is the perfect time to release the song as she is done with her album so it will not be a long wait in between songs for her fans.
Jesse recalls that at the time he got the call, he was listening to a lot of Chance The Rapper so he also feels as though that helped put him in the right mindset. “This is music that I love listening to but I don’t know if this music that I could write to”
Both artists feel as though the fact that this project poured out of them in a matter of hours is testament to the fact that the collaboration was meant to happen.
