Concertgoers at a recent Kelly Khumalo show got to witness a sweet proposal in action. The 'Empini' singer briefly paused her show to help Judy Leshabane propose to her girlfriend. 

"Guys, 100s of you, I love this woman and  I want to ask her one question. Baby, will you please do me the honours and [make me] the happiest woman? Will you please marry me?" Judy asked.

The crowd cheered as her tearful and speechless partner shook her head to indicate yes. 

Kelly, who was jumping up and down in excitement, then sang 'Ngathwala Ngaye'. The 37-year-old recorded the love song with Mondli Ngcobo.

"@ijudylesh I’m still in awe of what you did and congratulations to both you and your fiancé," she captioned a clip from the proposal.

Despite her own engagement to rapper Chad Da Don coming to an end in 2019, Kelly clearly still believes in love. 

The song she sang during her show was inspired by Romeo And Juliet's sweet but tragic love story. She revealed in an interview that she wanted the song to take people back to authentic love. 

"[Ngathwala Ngaye] was inspired by William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, but with an African interpretation since I'm a proud African woman. My intention was to represent our own love stories as Africans. I am actually saying, 'I'm so enamoured by you that it seems you cast a spell on me - I love you so much that I cannot see beyond you," H-Metro quoted her as saying in February 2021. 

The music video for the song reached a big milestone earlier this month. It clocked five million views on YouTube!
