It has been a very difficult time for our country. We have been introduced to a Lockdown, which was set to be a measure to flatten the curve. With that, many TV shows were forced to pause production until recently.
Idols SA happen to be one of thos shows, and now that the country had entered Level 3 lockdown, they have picked oup where they left off pre lockdown.
Idols judge Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung posted videos and pictures of himself on the Idols SA stage. Saying: “Let the work begin”.
He also went on to ask young and upcoming fashion designers to submit their ideas for designs they would like to design and see him in on the debut of the live shows.
Idols SA Season 16 is currently in production. The shooting of mass and on-line auditions was completed before the government implemented lockdown in March 2020.
The production company (SIC Entertainment) has been adhering to all the government lockdown guidelines and regulations whilst recording post the mass auditions.
The show’s start date will be communicated closer to the time”, says Nomsa Philiso: Director, Local Entertainment Channels.
Unathi Nkayi also took to social media to let people know the show was in production.
“With the @idolssa styling team we’ve had to reinvent looks because of the restrictions of lockdown and also the fact fashion houses have suffered deeply because of it.” she said.
