Kelly Khumalo Does NOT have a Doccie Deal with Netflix

Netflix has firmly denied rumours that a major deal had been struck with Kelly Khumalo and Zandile Gumede to create a documentary about the details behind footballer Senzo Meyiwa’s death.

A popular Twitter user named Joy Zelda took to the social media platform on Sunday, 8 October, with an explosive fake news, saying: “Kelly Khumalo and Zandile Khumalo Gumede have signed a R22-million deal with Netflix to produce a docu-series about the events that took place in the house the day Senzo Meyiwa was killed.”

Gumede immediately took to Instagram to set the matter straight, as she shared a screenshot of the tweet, saying: “It’s always funny AF [sic] when I find out things about myself that I didn’t even know about myself.”

However, the unstoppable rumour mill was already rolling, with many tweeps furious at the mere thought of the documentary. Some Twitter users went so far as to immediately cancel their account with the streaming service.

“There is no truth to these ‘reports’, there is no deal between the Khumalos and Netflix,” a spokesperson for the company firmly told a local publication the next day.

Just last year, Ten Ten Films – a production company that is associated with the streaming conglomerate – created a docu-series on the murder of the South African soccer legend at the Khumalo family home in Vosloorus, Gauteng in October 2014.
