After last Sunday’s top 6 elimination round on the Spotlight, two contestants definitely had to take a bow, on six to compete.

Mnqobi Nkambule remains the only rapper left in the competition after Ntsetselelo Mkhonta bite the dust on Sunday.

Mnqobi took a shot at “New Season”, a song from the collaborative efforts of Mozaik and Ziyawa. The judges loved everything about his performance, with Khulekani saying that he’s sure Mozaik and Ziyawa will consider doing a remake of the song.
