Idols SA has gone ahead with plans to introduce guest judges on the show in Somizi’s absence. The first guest judge this week was Lady Du. The Amapiano star shared photos of her commanding and endearing look in a black outfit. South Africans also got her on social media trend list, as her judging skill was said to be top-notch. Some persons even urged Idols SA to make her a permanent judge, since Somizi Mhlongo isn’t a judge on the show anymore, due to personal issues.
Early last week social media users were calling for Kelly Khumalo to be one of the judges on the show, with the Sunday World reporting that the producers have been considering her inclusion. Despite the rumours swelling around Kelly Khumalo the channel did not reveal any names, saying it will be running a social media campaign for its viewers to guess the week’s judge.
