Idols SA has announced its judges for the 18th season of the singing reality TV show. Joining the judging panel this year is pop culture icon Thembi Seete and rapper-producer extraordinaire JR Bogopa.

ProVerb is returning as the host when the new season starts this year. Somizi was recently suspended after his estranged husband Mohale Motaung accused him of physical abuse.

Following the allegations, there were numerous calls from the public to take him out on air but the channel has decided to bring him back.

“We’re excited to have Idols SA return for an incredible 18th season. To have such longevity in such a fast-changing industry is no small feat, and we’re proud to keep giving our viewers what they love. One of the key components in having staying power is evolution, and our new-look panel is part of that,” says Nomsa Philiso, Executive Head of Programming: General Entertainment.
 
She continues: “Idols SA is an important part of our creative industry. Not only do we unearth hidden talent, but we also nurture our contestants and equip them with the necessary tools to start or grow their careers. It’s a privilege to be able to do that for another season.”
