    Taking to Instagram to announce the return of the singing competition in a promo video, Idols South Africa host, ProVerb, said the show is back with a new look and welcomed the new judges, musicians Thembi Seete and JR Bogopa to the show.

    TWO NEW JUDGES WELCOMED ON ‘IDOLS SA’

    After Idols SA season 17, singer-songwriter Unathi Nkayi and Randall Abrahams made the decision to leave while fan-favourite Somizi Mhlongo took time away from the show following abuse allegations from his estranged husband, Mohale Motaung. 

    Somizi was asked to return to the show and the singing competition welcomed veteran musicians Thembi Seete and JR Bogopa. 

    Speaking to True Love about her role as a judge, Seete said she has always wanted the opportunity to share her industry experience and knowledge with young people. 

    “I’m definitely looking forward to seeing authentic singers who will connect to whatever songs they’ll be singing and are present of their surroundings,” said Seete.
