The Idols SA contestant performed the song flawlessly and received a shout-out from Thandiswa, who went on Twitter and applauded Nozi for perfoming her hit song.
Haven’t seen the performance but big love to Nozi for singing my song
Nozi is slowly becoming Idols SA’s favourite contestant, and she produces some fireworks each time she is on stage. Her vocals are strong, and she knows how to control her voice, becoming Mzansi’s darling.
The 27-year-old Nozi first joined Idols in 2016 but did not make it beyond the first cut. However, she decided to come back to Idols SA this year to flaunt her talent to Mzansi and walk in the footsteps of her musical hero Jennifer Hudson.
