Video: Clash hopefuls serenade Master Zakes
Hailing his mentorship and gift for making music, Clash of the Choirs South Africa hopefuls sang music mogul Zakes Bantwini's praises as they hit the Gauteng auditions at the weekend.

And compliments weren’t the only things being lined up, as singers from all over Gauteng flocked to Newtown in Johannesburg and made their bid for Zakes’s attention. As one of seven Choirmasters in the competition, Zakes is looking to create a Super Choir which takes listeners on a journey that offers an emotional connection, as well as the melodies and harmonies, and which we’ll all fall in love with.

Did he find what he was seeking? Check out the entrants, dying to snap up the chance to work with the “extraordinary” Zakes…

The spotlight turns to Mpumalanga next and on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November, Choirmaster Zwai Bala will be looking for his Super Choir at The Nelspruit Hotel.
