Idols SA twins, Viggy and Virginia Qwebe, have been making headlines since they both made it into the top 17 of the competition, which is a first.
Briefly.co.za learnt that the twins appeared on the cover of Drum magazine and opened up about how they were dragged on social media after they were called ugly. But since they secured a place in the top 10, the criticism seemed to be slowing down.
“I’ve never seen a talented person not make it to Idols because they were called ugly. Talent counts – beauty can be bought,” said Virginia with Viggy agreeing as reported by Daily Sun.
However, the twins said despite the negative experience on social media, they also received a lot of support from their community and family.
“At home, our parents, family and community give us the love we need and we have enough to share it with people who are unhappy. We were raised to love and respect people,” said Virginia.
But just in case they don’t win the competition, award-winning singer, Zahara, has offered to help “tell their story”.
The Loliwe hit-maker poster a picture with the twins on Instagram and captioned it: “They opened for me in 2017 - wow wow look at God now, if you guys don’t win at Idols, I’m here I will help you tell your story.”
Meanwhile, yesterday Briefly.co.za reported that Micayla Oelofse's latest performance was one that left her fans and many Idols SA viewers shaken. The aspiring singer's rendition of Andra Day's Rise Up was dedicated to her late mother and she did an amazing job of it.
