How did Mmatema become famous?

The budding star auditioned for the 9th season of South African Idols and surprisingly was cut on the first try. She did not give up on her dream to be on the show, and she tried again for the tenth season but only reached the group stage and did not proceed further.

SA Idols competition

She gave it one more shot in 2015, and after one fantastic audition, she became South Africa's sweetheart. Her first performance was a cover of Demi Lovato's Skyscraper. The judges were floored, and from that moment, her career trajectory changed forever.

Sadly in the SA Idols finals, she lost to Karabo Mogane, which disappointed several of her fans who believe that she was robbed of a deserving first-place win. The Daily Sun even ran a front-page story titled Our Idols was robbed!
