- Ynaga won season 14 of Idols SA, and with it a number of prizes, including cash
- Idols SA failed to pay Yanga her cash prize on time and it caused quite a stir
- Talking to Daily Sun, Yanga explained that she has now been paid and everyone can chill
Yanga Sobetwa made many proud when she scooped the Idols SA season 14 title. However, failure to pay her prize money put a major dampener on the glory.
Taking the title of Idols SA comes with a lot more than just the recognition. Winners are gifted cars, music equipment, trips and money.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Yanga had a bit of an issue when it came to receiving her cash prize – where the green at?!
Phil Mphela took to social media in Yanga’s defence, letting the world know how shocking it was that the poor girl had not been given what was due to her, almost a whole entire year later.
The post caused quite a stir until Yanga got in contact with Daily Sun and ironed it all out by telling the publication that Idols SA sorted everything out and she had received her money.
"The money issue has been resolved and there’s no need for people to share that tweet," Yanga told Daily Sun.
Mzansi Magic shed some light on the issue as well, highlighting that the only reason Yanga was not paid her money immediately was due to the fact that she was only 17 at the time.
So, all is good in the hood. Yanga got the green and peeps can settle down now.
