IDOLS SA: Brandon and Zama are in it to win it

Two of Mpumalanga’s Idols SA hopefuls, Zama Khumalo and Brandon Dlhudlhu have made it to the Top 5.

Zama, who had been shaky in the past couple of weeks, had the judges pleading with her to believe she had everything to win the competition. Somizi was impressed with her rendition of Alicia Keys’s ‘A Woman’s Worth’ and her performance of Cici’s ‘Hamba Naye’. “It was beautiful, I loved it,” he said, while Randall echoed his sentiments, but adding she could be more emotive. Unathi, too, was impressed that she was back in the competition.
