- Limpopo artist Vhudie has release his first single titled My Yoki Yoki and it's a hit
- The former Idols SA contestant won Mzansi over when he shared his song with the country while in the competition
- His new single has been met with positivity and support from South African listeners
Vhudie has come a long way from impressing the masses at his first Idols SA audition. The singer and composer has now released his first official single, My Yoki Yoki, and Mzansi is loving it.
The Venda singer stole Mzansi's hearts when he performed the song at his audition for the singing competition. Although he was booted off the show in the second round, he managed to make a name for himself and build his career profile.
Releasing his single on the same day as Cassper Nyovest's album drop was a risky move but it seems to have paid off. The artist is currently trending on Twitter alongside Nyovest as South Africans enjoy the beautiful song.
Here are some reactions from social media users:
"#MyYokiYoki This song slaps hard when you're in a relationship..."
"I bought mine... and yey, it is lit.Congratulations @VhudieOfficial... great WORK!!!"
"Ok alright, I just downloaded, this song is beautiful."
"Uhm... I'm getting married this weekend because I can't let this song go to waste."
"Congratulations! #MyYokiYoki on repeat."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Vhudie confirmed that there's an album on the way. In an exclusive interview with Briefly.co.za, the musician also dismissed claims that he has signed a contract with any record label.
The star was recently booted out of Idols SA and many viewers speculated that the judges had to let him go because he has already found a stable support base.
Mzansi fell in love with Vhudie when he auditioned for the singing competition in Johannesburg. He sang his own original song My Yoki Yoki and it became an instant hit.
Even the judges of the show bopped their heads and sang along with him. Vhudie told Briefly.co.za that he wanted to be original as possible on the popular music competition and he did exactly just that.
"I did exactly what I went to Idols for. I only wanted to be myself and that's what I did."
He said he learnt on Idols that "without pressure there's no growth". The star also advised peeps who wish to enter the music competition to be themselves.
"Go there and do you."
