Idols SA 2017 runner-up Mthokozisi Ndaba is receiving “assistance” after losing out to Paxton Fielies on the grand finale.
Mthokozisi walked off the Idols SA stage just a few minutes after Paxton was announced as the winner of Idols SA 2017 and has since refused all requests for interviews.
The truth is that Mthokozisi is “not in a good space” and Mzansi Magic have confirmed that he has been given time away from the spotlight to deal with the loss.
“Mthokozisi has requested to be given time to come to terms with the result of the Idols show.He will indicate when he is ready to speak to the media,” said head of PR at M-Net Nondumiso Mabece.
He comes from KZN and was orphaned at just 14 years, Mthokozisi also made headlines earlier this year as he was shot in a robbery before the live shows began.
Normally both the winner and runner-up attend a press conference right after the end of the grand finale show however photos on social media saw an empty chair with Mthokozisi’s name on it.
“He is currently receiving assistance to deal with emotions involved in this situation,” added Mabece.
