Idols SA 2018 Top 16 Contestant: Xae’s Profile and Biography
So who is Xae?
Full Name: Zamagambu Memela
Hometown: Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal
Even though Randall was ready to grant her a straight pass to Theatre Week, 19 year old Xae proved she needed no favours and had the unquestionable talent. Thanks to flawless performances at auditions, duets and solos, the hospitality student easily claimed her spot in the Top 16.
Hailing from Pinetown in Durban, Xae is the first contestant in the history of Idols SA to get her Golden Ticket autographed by a Judge. That’s a pretty impressive feat when one considers how tough simply scoring four yeses tends to be. Xae says winning Idols SA would make all her dreams come true.
