He is 26 years old.
Faith is currently based in Pretoria, Gauteng.
The third time’s the charm for Faith when it comes to Idols South Africa: he first auditioned while in high school, before trying again in Season 18, where he made it to the first round of Theatre Week.
This time he had to choose between an overseas job opportunity and the last chance to try for Idols SA – and now he’s in the Top 12. “Making it this far is the best feeling ever. I don’t take it lightly,” he says.
Coming from a musical, pastoral family, he was around 10 years old when Nakana discovered his voice, and he hasn’t stopped stop singing since.
From Sunday choir and playing community functions and weddings, to being in international competitions, he has spent years “growing in music”.
When it comes to live performances, audiences can expect Faith to put his heart on the stage. “I’m bringing my A-game. Music, for me, is spiritual,” he says.
