Kalawa Jazmee Records has bagged a new deal with Idols SA. The winner of Season 16 of the singing competition will be signed to Kalawa.
Veteran musician and one of the owners of the independent record label, DJ Oskido, shared the good news on social media on Monday, 27 October. The star wrote on Instagram:
"We @kalawaJazmeeRecords are happy to partner with @idolsa to sign the winner of Idols SA Season 16."
The stable is owned by Oskido, Spikiri, Mahoota, Bruce Dope, Bra Don Laka and Mjokes. It is home to artists such as Professor, DJ Zinhle and Busiswa, among others. The stable, founded in the 1990's, is also famous for producing musicians such as Boom Shaka, Bongo Maffin, Thebe and Trompies, among others.

Tlhogi MaDebby wrote on Facebook:
"We are so happy that they have changed the record label. I don't remember a winner of Idols progressing after being nominated. Only Musa who was saved by Robbie."
mabee.michael commented on Instagram:
"Finally those kids can have a proper music career."
"Nice one Oskido you will definitely make a huge impact on those kids."
"Hopefully you guys will do better, it was a concern that most if not all of these Idols winners just somehow disappear and are never successful in their music careers. Idols is to discover talent but if that talent is not natured well then what's the point of having a show like Idols."
"Finally we are going to see Idols winners post competition."
Mzansi celebs such as Black Coffee, DJ Zinhle, DJ Clock, Unathi and Busiswa also flooded Oskido's timeline to congratulate Kalawa on the new deal.

"And I’m really gearing up for a good season. If you see me turning up there’s a good reason!"
Madjozi's admirers from all over Mzansi flooded her comment section as soon as she posted the pics. Most of the men asked the star to marry them.
