In Sunday’s (5 February) show, Luke Lovemore revealed that he’s best buds with Richard. They met at Stardust in Cape Town and briefly formed a band. “I don’t want to be known as Richard’s friend,” he told Lungile. “I want to be Luke Lovemore.”
Now Luke has told TshisaLIVE that if it wasn't for Richard he wouldn't be in the competition. “Richard has been the absolute best!” he told them. “If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have done The Voice South Africa. He called me on the morning of the auditions and basically said that I don't have a choice," Luke said.
He continued: "The Voice South Africa has been something magical. It's taught me so much about the music industry and it's helped me back myself in knowing that I have what it takes to make a successful music career for myself."
There’s also a YouTube around on which Luke and Richard cover Justin Bieber's “Love Yourself” – but it may be the sight of Richard’s abs and guns that’ll have #TheVoiceSA fans talking!
