- Yanga Sobetwa has revealed that she will be making gospel music after winning ‘Idols SA’
- She has always wanted to make music that brought people closer to God and now she has the chance to do that
- She knows that it is an unusual path to follow, but she is staying true to herself
After winning ‘Idols SA’, Yanga has decided that she would like to make a name for herself in gospel music instead of following in previous winners’ footsteps by going into pop music.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that the 17-year-old songstress won the 2018 ‘Idols SA’ crown over the weekend and she already has plans about what she is going to do with her success in the future.
She beat out Thato Makape, who had developed quite a loyal fan base throughout the competition, however, Yanga had been a fan favourite from the start.
The young singer still hasn’t come to terms with the fact that she is the latest person to walk away with the ‘Idols SA’ crown, but it will dawn on her soon enough.
TimesLIVE reports that Yanga is set on helping the youth connect to God through music, which is why she is choosing to go the gospel route from the start.
Many of the previous winners have released one or two pop albums before they find their feet and start making music in their preferred genre.
A good example of this would be Khaya Mthethwa. Khaya won the show made released some music before he threw himself into gospel music and Yanga admits that he has been a role model for her.
The singer feels that this whole experience on ‘Idols SA’ has been a dream come true for her and she is eager to start making things happen.
While she is excited to start her career, Yanga is also pretty happy with the fact that she is now a millionaire.
She plans on investing the money for now and letting it gather some interest before she gets to use it.
