Age-defying Thembi Seete occupies Idols SA guest judge seat

Thembi Seete was the guest judge during the latest episode of Idols SA, with the veteran being lauded for her age-defying looks.

Idols South Africa (SA) took to Twitter on Sunday, 10 October 2021, to confirm the surprise guest judge. Since the show’s resident judge, Somizi Mhlongo, is on a season hiatus following revelations on the details of his marriage to estranged husband, Mohale Motaung, it has been inviting guest judges. For the showstopper episode, Idols SA invited entertainment veteran, Thembi Seete. However, that was not the only surprise the show had.

Firstly, it opened up with a performance of the hit amapiano single, Bopha, by Mellow and Sleazy, featuring DJ Maphorisa and Young Stunna. Thereafter, the competing top seven were relieved to find out that the latest episode would see all of them safe from elimination. However, the votes from the previous performances would be tallied along with the votes from this week’s showstopper performances.

While Dineo Ranaka is still touted as the best possible candidate to replace Mhlongo in the new season, viewers and audiences could not get over Seete’s age-defying looks. At 44 years old, the Gomora actress is still lauded for looking the same way she did when she entered the entertainment industry. As a musician, actress and television and radio host, Seete has a career that spans decades.
