1. Fans upset at Idols SA judge, Somizi, for criticising the Qwabe twins

Idols SA fans were not happy with the judges after the latest episode of the singing competition. Somizi and Unathi weren't really impressed with the Qwabe sisters' performance but viewers loved them, as usual. Somizi got the most attention from upset social media users, Briefly.co.za noticed.

Must be because he said he wasn't 'feeling' Viggy's performance. The twins have been solid favourites with fans of the show right from the start. They even made history when they were the reason Idols had its first-ever top 17.

Viggy and Virginia are used to negative vibes and they'll probably learn what they can from the criticism and not worry about it too much. They made it clear that they won't let anything negative bring them down when they reacted calmly to people calling them ugly. The ladies are indeed an inspiring pair.
