- Singer Tellaman has warned Idols SA contestants to get out before it's too late
- The musician may be referring to the fact that most of the competition's winners disappear into obscurity after the show wraps up
- Mzansi social media users have been raving about one contestant named Vhudi, who managed to impress everyone
Mzansi musician Tellaman has weighed in on the singing competition, Idols SA. The Whipped crooner is clearly not a fan if his recent comment is anything to go by.
Many are aware that while the Idols SA show has much hype and receives many viewers, the winners often fade into the background after a few months. Tellaman has warned talented Idols SA contestants to get the exposure they need from auditions and then get out.
The singer may be referring to Vhudi, a Venda artist who has been trending on social media after singing his own song.
Briefly.co.za reported that Idols SA viewers fell in love with a Limpopo musician who auditioned for the popular singing competition. The man, who goes by the name Vhudi, was seen at the Johannesburg auditions of the show. Vhudi sang his piece titled My Yoki Yoki. The show's judges and Mzansi loved the performance.
Social media users had mixed reactions to his views. Twitter user ClementineOsyra said:
"I don't think things will change. Just as there will always be people ready to sign their souls to record labels, there will be many hopeful aspiring talents flocking to these talent shows."
"No disrespect bro, but it's easier for you to say."
"I feel there is more to this post that you're not telling us, please elaborate"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Idols SA judge, Unathi Nkayi, has shut down rumours of beefing with recent guest judge DJ Zinhle. Unathi took to Instagram to share a video from last week’s episode of Idols SA.
She posted a caption about the events behind the scenes. The promo post said nothing about Zinhle as she was not longer a guest judge on the show. However, a social media user decided to make it about her anyway.
The follower noticed that Unathi’s mood was drastically different to when Zinhle appeared on the show, and said:
"You were not happy like this when you was working with DJ Zinhle, you were so moody. Why...?”
