With Zambia’s biggest reality singing competition drawing near, we take a closer look at the people responsible for picking the “Next Music Star”, the judges.

With vast experience spanning across various entertainment and business sectors, the three judges; Thandiwe Vundamina, Mukuni Mulundika and Kenny Tonga were carefully selected as the best to help unearth Zambia’s next best star.

Their chemistry on set is unmatched and their glaring differences and love-hate relationship make for the best trio for this task.

She's currently Programmes and Production Manager at Phoenix FM. Don't let Thandi's petite frame fool you, she's as fierce as they come and you'll really love to see her in action on Dreams.
