During the interview, Slikour asked Kehlani if people always ask if she knows how her name is pronounced in South Africa. She acknowledged this and laughed.

She said:

“Long before I was even booked to come here, there’s always South Africans in my comments like, “Sis, do you know how to pronounce your name actually?”

She then tries to pronounce the ‘hl’ sound like South Africans do and fails. Slikour jumps in to help her, to no avail. Kehlani laughs it off and admits she is too American. She then tells viewers they should call her the South African when they meet in the club.

On Instagram, South Africans laughed at Kehlani attempting to pronounce her name in Zulu. Check out their comments below.


” 😂😂😂 I love her, and that’s how I pronounce her name ❤️🙌”


“Is that even a real name like that? It doesn’t sound maan.”


“Like the sound of static….or the sound of a fizzy drink bubbles when poured into a glass….or the sound of an old analogue TV or radio set when the signal is lost.”

The Homies:

“Damn, I’m so American” is the most accurate thing an American struggling to pronounce something has ever said🤣🤣why can’t their tongues operate fully??”
