Meet Idols SA 2018 ‘Season 14’ top 16 contestant Thando.
So who is Thando?
Full Name: Thando Mngomezulu
Hometown: Alberton, Gauteng
Incredibly shy yet just as phenomenally talented, Thando had to dig deep to come out of her shell and reveal what lay within to the judges. What was nestled inside the timid media practices scholar was a voice that gave the judges little doubt that she was worthy of a Top 16 spot and singing for South Africa’s votes.
This Media Studies student says she’s always wanted to crack it in showbiz! Thanks to her powerhouse vocals, Thando also epitomises the saying, “dynamite comes in small packages”.
Despite being extremely shy initially, Thando has gradually peeled away the layers giving strong performances right through Theatre Week and securing a Top 16 spot.
