Idols SA featured popular musician, Zahara, as the musical guest and guest judge for the latest episode, which saw Bulelani go home.
ProVerb took to Twitter on Sunday, 3 October 2021, to confirm that musician, Zahara, would be the fourth guest judge for the Idols South Africa (SA) live performances. Moreover, the celebrated musician was also the musical performer of the night. Zahara follows Dineo Ranaka’s guest judging stint that took place the previous Sunday, 26 September 2021. Ranaka’s feature arguably received more engagement on social media than that of Zahara.
Fans who watched the show believed that as prolific of an artist as Zahara is, she did not have the same gravitas and articulation as Ranaka. Zahara seemed to have received the critique gracefully as she took to Twitter to write, “Thank you guys for all the positive comments, it was my first time judging and I’ll keep learning. Until we do it again.”
Ranaka, so far, is touted as the best replacement should the show decide to permanently move on from Somizi Mhlongo as the resident judge. This is as no formal word has been shared yet on Mhlongo’s return to his judging seat on the show. Moreover, the show marked its top seven stage, following the elimination of Bulelani.
