Radio and television personality Dineo Ranaka’s appearance as a guest judge on last Sunday’s episode of Idols SA left many tongues wagging – and for all the best reasons. There were those who took to Twitter to recognise her clear authority on all things entertainment:
Much of this would be due to the fact that people immediately recognise her as being more than smart enough to provide useful feedback:
Some of this might have a lot to do with viewers being in awe of Dineo’s eloquence – although they shouldn’t be surprised. She is a radio host, after all:
Viewers also thought that she brought something more to the judging process than mere critique – a sense of positive reinforcement and upliftment:
Not surprisingly, considering all of that praise, a lot of people let it be known that they would be more than happy to see Dineo Ranaka grace their Idols SA screens every week:
Not a bad reception for a guest stint, right? It seems that after “radio personality” and “reality TV star”, Dineo Ranaka can add “fan favourite singing judge” to her already-impressive resumé.
