Finishes 5th in season 10
He was still Kyle Deutschman when he finished fifth in 2014 – since then he has become a go-to collaborator and features artist of note. Of course, there was ‘Back To The Beach’ with fellow Idol Shekhinah, but his soulful vocals have also appeared on tunes with Cassper Nyovest, Kwesta , Kelly Khumalo, and Tellaman. He opened gigs for Justin Bieber. He’s a three-time SAMA nominee and, alongside Shekhinah, the winner of an MTV MAMA. The video for ‘Now That We’re Talking’ featuring Mnqobi Yazo featured both Maps Maponyane and Mishqah Parthiephal. His latest track with Sketchy Bongo, ‘Melody’, landed mid-August 2020, and it slays. Oh, and when he was saying ‘Back To The Beach’, he wasn’t referring to his medical degree and specialty – he’s an accomplished chiropractor. He’s been super-busy in 2020, releasing the hit cuts ‘Cool’ alongside Kaein Cruz and Spain featuring Sir Tcee.
