Australian singer Kamahl has ruffled feathers after once again changing his stance on the forthcoming Voice to Parliament referendum, declaring his intention to vote 'No' after recently endorsing the 'Yes' campaign.
The 88-year-old Malaysian-born initially opposed the constitutional amendment on 10 September, citing a lack of understanding of the proposal.
However, Kamahl seemingly reversed his view last week after discussions with Indigenous comedian Dane Simpson and constitutional law expert Eddie Synot.
"Changing my mind wasn't too difficult, because the No was a flippant 'no'. It was not an educated No," Kamahl explained during an ABC News Breakfast interview.
Labor leader Anthony Albanese expressed optimism about the Yes campaign's prospects, coining the term "Kamahl-mentum" to describe the singer's initial endorsement.
But in a major blow to the 'Yes' campaign about-face, Kamahl announced just two days later that he would, in fact, vote No.
Speaking on The Project, he argued that an Indigenous Voice could risk dividing Australia along racial lines, citing key arguments of the No campaign.
"If you do the Voice this way, it becomes a racist issue. You're putting a whole race of people separate from the rest of the country," he stated.
