South Africa loved the first episode of The Voice SA, which made its debut on M-Net this past Sunday. Now, there’s exciting news for viewers who don’t have access to M-Net Channel 101. From Saturday, 6 February, there will be a repeat of the unique, feel-good singing contest on M-Net’s sister channel M-Net City, channel 115 on DStv, at 18:00. This means that DStv Compact viewers will also have access to The Voice SA – six days after its Sunday night premiere on M-Net on DStv Premium.
“The response to The Voice SA has been absolutely phenomenal,” says M-Net’s Head of Publicity, Lani Lombard. “Social media has been abuzz with positive comments about the incredible talent, the chemistry between the formidable coaches and the passionate way they were battling it out to get the best singers into their teams. There have been several requests from DStv’s Compact viewers to make the show available to a wider audience and we’re thrilled to have found a repeat spot for the show on M-Net City.”
For DStv Premium viewers there’s another great The Voice South Africa treat waiting on Sunday at 17:30. “You can look forward to seeing how the coaches respond to a variety of singers – from ones who are music teachers themselves to talent who are braving the stage with unusual music genres and loads of gutzpah. Also stay tuned for a dramatic moment where one contestant is so overcome by her Voice experience that she collapses on stage!"
The big question of course remains: Which of the coaches will be able to nab the best talent, as the final decision is in the hands of the performers themselves.
At the end of last week’s episode each of the coaches had two singers in their teams, with the exception of Kahn, who walked away with the phenomenal Prime Zulu who impressed with his deep voice and emotionally-laden rendition of Tracy Chapman’s Give Me One Reason. This means that all eyes will be on Kahn to see if he can catch up this week. There are also still six episodes of Blind Auditions remaining, so the coaches will have to pace themselves during this strategic round of the series.
