Mzansi Gay Choir steals the show alongside ‘Idols SA’ top five [watch]

South Africa is a little bit closer to finding out who the winner of season 17 will be, as the competition heats up. The top five performed two songs each on Sunday 24 October and to celebrate Pride Month, they teamed up with Mzansi Gay Choir who have become regulars on the Idols SA stage.

The Idols SA top five contestants — Daylin Sass, Berry, S’22kile, Karabo Mathe and Kevin Maduna –were tasked with performing two songs each.

One song was a South African hit they had to strip down and the second was a song with the Mzansi Gay Choir. With only three weeks left to go until the finale, the contestants did not hold back.

Multi-talented entertainer Khaya Dlala sat in the guest judge’s chair and looked dazzling as ever.

Karabo was the first top five contestant to take the stage and started the show strong with an emotional performance of Amanda Black’s Thandwa Ndim. Unathi was left emotional after the performance and complimented her for taking the judge’s advice week after week. “Thank you for being you,” said Unathi. 

Unfortunately, her performance of Tina Turner’s hit River Deep Mountain High by Tina Turner didn’t quite hit the mark for the judges.


Cape Town-based singer Daylin Sass performed Liquideep’s Fairytale which Randall thoroughly enjoyed while Unathi complimented him saying he respects every song that he performs. His performance of Adam Lambert’s Whataya Want from me left Randall wanting more.

The judges loved S’22kile’s performance of Bucie’s house hit Easy To Love noting that it was her best performance to date. S’22kile’s second performance left Randall unsatisfied while Unathi and Khaya loved every second of it. 

31-year-old Berry performed Craig Lucas’ Happy and Lady Gaga’s Edge of Glory and she received compliments from all three judges for both performances. Randall praised her song choices.

Kevin performed Afrotracktion’s Mnike and Unathi said she could not fault his performance but it was his performance with the Mzansi Gay Choir that proved he was a powerful competitor. His rendition of George Michael’s As blew the judges away and Khaya was ready to give him the title of South African Idols. 

On all the performances, Unathi complimented the top five on their growth. 

“I don’t know who is going to be 2021’s Idols SA winner – but all I can say is that they are all already winners.” 

Next Sunday one of the top five contestants will go home, but who will it be?

Tembisa 10: Decuplets saga continues as Independent Media report finds ‘explosive evidence of wrongdoing’

Independent Media will reveal the findings of its internal investigation into the Tembisa 10 saga on Wednesday. Pretoria News editor Piet Rampedi maintains that Gosiame Sithole gave birth to 10 babies despite the evidence to the contrary.

Tembisa 10: Decuplets saga continues as Independent Media report finds ‘explosive evidence of wrongdoing’

In June 2021, Pretoria News editor Piet Rampedi published a story that made headlines across the globe. He claimed that a South African woman, Gosiame Sithole, gave birth to a world record-breaking 10 babies. A government investigation eventually found that the ‘Tembisa 10’ were never born and that Sithole was not pregnant recently.

Rampedi issued an apology to Independent Media and his colleagues but he maintained that his remarkable story was true. Independent instituted an internal investigation into the matter and it will be made public on Wednesday, 27 October.


At 19:00 on Monday, 25 October, Independent Media announced that it would hold a press conference – titled In Search of the Truth – Explosive Evidence of Wrongdoing to be Revealed in Decuplets Report – at its headquarters in Newspaper House, Cape Town on Wednesday.

Independent Media said the Tembisa 10 story was welcomed before being decried as fake news and admitted that its reputation has taken a knock for its “failure to conduct the necessary checks and balances.”

“Independent Media committed to several in-depth investigations regarding this story and to discovering the truth,” said the media house, adding that it has poured resources into the report for months and its findings are explosive.

Earlier this year, the Gauteng provincial government said it instructed the State Attorney general to take legal action against Piet Rampedi and Independent Media. This came after Independent Media alleged that the state was involved in a cover-up, which is why no trace of the decuplets could be found.

“We want them to retract the unfortunate allegations made against the government,” said provincial spokesperson Thabo Masebe.

The original Tembisa 10 story claimed that Sithole gave birth on 7 June 2021. She was later admitted to Tembisa Hospital on 18 June and after several medical tests, it was found that she did not give birth recently and had not been pregnant recently either.

Independent Media says the truth about the Tembisa 10 will be revealed at Newspaper House on Wednesday morning at 11:00.
