- Idols SA Season 16 contestant Jerodine Madlala has a bun in the oven
- In a candid interview, the former Africa Umoja dancer said she was excited to announce that her and her bun will be continuing in the competition
- Jerodine was worried that fans would also assume that she was only picked for the top 16 because she is expecting
Idols SA Season 16 contestant Jerodine Madlala is pregnant! People have been suspicious of this as Jerodine’s bump has been making more of an appearance these days.
Jerodine has made it to the top 16 and fans are rooting for her. The former Africa Umoja dancer recently revealed in an interview that she is expecting.
While this was not exactly her plan, Jerodine is ready for the challenge and does not want this to affect her time on Idols SA. Sis is in it to win it.
Sunday World reported that Jerodine and her bun are ready to take on Idols SA and belt their way to the final. This was an unplanned pregnancy but Jerodine still feels extremely blessed.
Jerodine already has a child, who was also unexpected, and says that this feels exactly like the last time.
“This feels like déjà vu. I carried both my children while entertaining crowds and competing on stage. I’m yet to see what this meant for both of them.
“Psychologically, I had my reservations about this issue because I was eager to know if the Idols crew will accept me and my pregnancy or turn their backs on me, but to show that this is God’s will, I was warmly accepted back and everyone is celebrating this moment with me,."
The 28-year-old is now 28 weeks pregnant and wants Mzansi to know that she is giving it her all and that this pregnancy should not affect their voting.
“Regardless of what people are yet to say when they realize that I am pregnant on stage, I am still excited to be bearing this child and going through this moment knowing that I am fighting for two things at once, my baby’s life and a brighter future for all of us."
“I have been granted a chance to continue performing and I will use it to my advantage. I am ready, to conquer. I want God to take control.”
Idols SA PR representative Irvin Pooe confirmed that Madlala had reported that she was pregnant.
“There is no rule that a pregnant woman should not be part of Idols SA, she will still continue performing and fighting for the number one spot without being held back by the crew. We are happy for her and wish that she and her unborn baby stay healthy.”
Briefly.co.za previously reported that DJ Zinhle has been summoned by Idols SA viewers after hopeful Matevhu was booted off the show.
At the audition leg of the singing competition, guest judge DJ Zinhle was impressed by Matevhu and even promised her a collab in future. Fans are now reminding Zinhle of her promise to make music with the singer. The official Idols SA Twitter page posted:
"Oh no, Matevhu. She's the first to fall in the final #IdolsSA judgement... Ahem, @DJZinhle..."
