JOHANNESBURG - Afro-pop singer Kelly Khumalo says she's a working woman who has a responsibility to take care of her two children.

Khumalo was slain Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates captain Senzo Meyiwa's girlfriend.

Video: 'Senzo my number 1 fan'.

Meyiwa was shot and killed while he was visiting her mother's house in Vosloorus on 26 October.

The singer called a press conference at Universal Records in Rosebank to promote her single Asine.

The song is about a woman who is accused of killing her husband and during the court case, she kept saying "it's not me, it's not me" (asine, asine).

Asine is a Venda word for it's not me.

Khumalo told reporters she wasn't ready to talk about Meyiwa's murder.

A suspect was arrested in connection with the footballer's murder but charges were later withdrawn due to a lack of evidence.

Meanwhile, people shared their mixed views on her press conference on Twitter:

Lest we forget, Kelly Khumalo is an exceptional singer and performer. I'd also ask ya'll to focus on the album if I were her.

I've always supported #KellyKhumalo since this whole thing but this presser was not tactical from a PR point of view. Its a futile exercise.

Kelly Khumalo loves attention. I wouldn't be surprised if she came on Twitter after her press conference and prayed in tongues.

Kelly Khumalo lacks direction as an entertainer. That brand needs serious intervention!!!!!!!'

Kelly Khumalo wears her pain proudly. She is a strong woman!

I admire @kellykhumalo's resolve. It can be easy losing a loved one & finding the strength to carry on. #GirlPower
