In a heartwarming episode of Republiek van Zoid Afrika on kykNET last night, Karen Zoid hosted her final two talent from The Voice SA, Thembeka Mnguni and Almur Marais. 

South Africa learnt during The Voice SA that Thembeka had been fired from her job when she opted to enter the show, leaving her uncertain of how she'd care for her Autistic son and subsequently keeping him out of school. "I had to look at the bigger picture - with me fulfilling my dreams then his future will get better because I couldn't cope financially", she told Karen.

Having struggled with her lil boy's school fees, Karen revealed during the show that her good friends at kykNET had been generous enough to cover the child's school fees for a year.


For the cherry on top, Karen invited Thembeka and Almur to perform their hit single “Vloek van die Kitaar/Thunderstruck”, featuring Angelou Roman. The song is available on iTunes here.
