‘Idols SA’ contestant’s song ‘Yoki Yoki’ goes international

Singing an original track on Idols has always been recorded as one of the worst decision for the show, but, 20-year-old Vhudi Mamphwe from Pretoria superseded the judge’s expectations with his own TshiVenda composition “My Yoki Yoki” song, that is still on top of the trend list even on today.

The song received a positive reaction, prompting all the judges (except Randall) to sing along with Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung admitting that although he didn’t understand a single word, he enjoyed the song. Randall however gave Vhudi the crown of being the first songwriter whose song he actually enjoyed. Buhle commended his songwriting skills for creating such a catchy song.

Venda tweeps could not stop celebrating after another Limpopo descendant Khavharendwe Netshithuthuni (28) from Thohoyandou, also came through with a TshiVenda song, with Randall commenting she is the first contestant who is “cool” and gave Unathi Nkayi goosebumps.
