There is a lot of undiscovered talent in South Africa. Idols SA gives young people the stage to showcase their musical skills and abilities. The singing reality show happens every year, and one winner is selected. The winner for Idols season 15 was Luyolo Yiba. You could be the winner in 2020, so do not fail to take part if you have a singing talent that South Africa has not heard yet.
You have the chance to participate in this great music reality show by going for auditions. They will be done in four locations, including Cape Town, Pretoria, Durban, and Johannesburg.
