Kamahl was interviewed on Studio 10 this morning around claims of racism during former Hey Hey it’s Saturday appearances.
Whilst conceding “of course it hurt” he has acknowledged appearances were a choice he made to promote his music, and that he didn’t bear any grudges personally against Daryl Somers.
He attributed the behaviour to tall poppy syndrome and says he has received an outpouring of emotion recently.
“Please be kind,” he said. “Kindness is kingliness.”
