Things are heating up on Idols SA as the title is in sight, and as fans hope their faves will win, they also remember previous winners.

With that said, the 2016 Idols winner, Noma Khumalo recently had people talking when it came to light that she walked away from her record label, Gallo.

On top of that, her album, Joy, also saw a massive price drop. The selling price went from R109,90 to just R5. A photo of the album's price was shared on social media, and people were quite saddened by the fact that things seem to have gone downward for the singer.
