Idols SA Season 18: JR Bogopa & Thembi Seete Join Somizi On Judging Panel
Idols Sa has got two new judges after the exit of Randall Abrahams and Unathi Nkayi. Meet JR Bogopa and Thembi Seete.
The two will join Somizi Mhlongo on the judging panel after the exit of the two previous judges. Somizi had exited the judging panel under controversial circumstances and then returned because the audience couldn’t have enough of him.
Randall Abrahams and Unathi, who had held court after Somizi’s exit, have now left, leaving room for JR Bogopa and Thembi Seete to take over.
Thembi Seete, who’s mostly known for her acting skills, is not new to the reality show. Last season, she had appeared on the show as one of the guest judges. Now she’ll be judging with a semblance of stability to her position.
JR is a celebrated rapper who many would rather all one of the OGs in South African rap. Last year, the songster had gifted a fan a car for Christmas.
Well, in a statement the reality show organizers had noted that they were excited to welcome the two new judges to the judging panel for season 18 of the show.
It remains to be seen how well they would perform on the beat, and if fans will start comparing them to previous judges.
