Lungile Mthethwa is a South African singer and medical student from Benoni, Gauteng.
She is 24 years old.
Lungile is currently living in Johannesburg, Gauteng.
This time around, she says she’s choosing to thrive in the pressure rather than wilt beneath it.
Coming from a singing family, she first performed aged seven at church.
She spent years in the choir and performed at events such as beauty pageants and weddings, before starting a YouTube channel where she sang covers. But music was always a side focus for her – until now.
Self-described as bubbly and confident, Lungile says audiences can expect her best self. “Music brings out who I am completely, more than anything else. When I’m on stage I feel the most alive. I hope to inspire.”
Season 11’s Lloyiso is the former contestant she looks up to, and musically she is inspired by Adele.
What does Lungile hope to achieve on Idols SA? “That the destined opportunities see me. That whatever is meant for me finds me.”
If she were to win Idols SA Season 19, Lungile would splurge on a very expensive designer bag for her mother.
