A contestant from Manzini who auditioned as simple, Siphiwe sang what seemed like a fully produced studio song and got the judges moving to the addictive tune.
Come to think of it, the manner of approach to the auditions (& the song itself) kind’a reminds me of My Yoki Yoki from the SA idols auditions. That guy became big so who knows maybe we have our very own star ready to be unleashed. Asengikutsi fahla ngema sample lyrics below.
“Akana no, uyabatsandza bantfu.
Akana no, sebatsi ugana lo, agane lo.
akana no, sengcela ningyekeleni.
Isiyebhu yebhu sami.
Isiyebhu yebhu sami lesi.”
The judges couldn’t help dance to the tune as well. Sadly, he didn’t make it to the next round – but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the tune & then listen to the rest of it yourself below.
