Tomorrow night, Randall and Unathi will be joined by Msaki, who will be lending her skills to the judging panel. The East London-born composer, songwriter and singer will also be delivering a performance, which is a special treat for Idols SA fans.
Msaki’s musical career started when she was about 20 as a member of an alternative rock band during her college days, but it really took off in 2013 with the release of her debut EP, Nal'ithemba. She followed that up with her debut studio-length album, Zaneliza: How The Water Moves, which earned itself some award nominations.
Msaki has worked with a number of other acts, including, Sun-El Musician, Kid X, TRESOR, Kabza De Small and Focalistic, and she is set to release her latest project on the Friday following her Idols SA appearance, which is definitely something to which to look forward. On Sunday, she will be judging the performances of the contestants during the Top 2 reveal – the show that unveils the two contestants who will be embroiled in the final singing showdown of the competition.
Season 17 of Idols SA broadcasts on Sundays at 17:00 on Mzansi Magic, channel 161. Get exclusive updates and a behind the scenes look at all the action right here on our site.
