“It’s About Time”: ‘Idols SA’ Finally Getting Canned, Mzansi Celebrate News
Idols SA will not be returning to our screens after Season 19 and fans are over the moon. Peeps headed to the timeline to dish their thoughts following the news.
The views for the popular singing competition dropped this last season as fans complained about the changes that had taken place.
Judges Unathi Nkayi and Randall were fired from the show and replaced with music producer JR Bogopa and Thembo Seete who many felt were not great judges.
According to entertainment blogger Phil Mphela, the show was recently renewed for Season 19 but that will be the last one. He wrote:

The news of the popular show being cancelled had Mzansi viewers celebrating. Many said it was about time the show gets canned and give way to fresh shows.
