Meet Idols SA 2018 ‘Season 14’ top 16 contestant Thato.
So who is Thato?
Full Name: Thato Makape
Hometown: Postmasburg, Northern Cape
Hailing for little known small town Postmasburg, Thatho travelled a remarkable 14hours to his Cape Town auditions. The arduous trek paid off though as the former barber found himself sailing through the duets and solos to firmly cement his place in the Top 16. Follow him as he sets out on his next big journey; making the people of Postsmasburg proud.
Thato must surely hold the record for the longest traveller to an Idols SA audition! He journeyed for a staggering 1 250km from his hometown of Postmasburg (in the Northern Cape) to Cape Town. The young barber’s tenacity was not in vain as he received his Golden Ticket after scoring three yeses from our Judges. He is now determined to go all the way for his mother, who is a cancer survivor.
