IdolsSA Sets The Record Straight Regarding Bullying Claims

In an interview with former entertainment journalist and television producer, Nicky Greenwall, Hlomla Dandala mentioned that in most cases the off-screen drama is a lot more meatier than the actual show.

One is reminded of this statement after rumours of heavy drama that is said to have been brewing at the Idols headquarters. Twitter was set ablaze when season 15 Idols contestant Snenhlanhla Sneziey Msomi was the trending topic.

The 25-year-old hopeful was alleged to have been the real reason behind Viggy's sudden exit after her twin sister got eliminated on Sunday.

According to these rumours, Sneziey has not been kind to Viggy and Virginia Qwabe during the course of the competition. Snark remarks such as being likened to a man were allegedly thrown at the twins on certain occasions.

Seemingly, the rumours have no real weight as Sneziey and Mzansi Magic have since denied any allegations of bullying and mistreatment towards the Qwabe twins.
Rumours were fueled by many on social media, including a Twitter user who was quick to post a video of another eliminated Idols hopeful,  Melanin Zwane. In the video, the 20-year-old rising star can be seen crying and relaying her story of being mistreated. Many Tweeps believe that she was referencing Sneziey and her close friend, Mmangaliso Gumbi, who has since been eliminated not too long ago.


Viggy and Virginia Qwabe have faced a series of slurs regarding their looks. Many have called them ugly, but proving just how strong and determined they truly were, the trolling didn't stop them from doing the most on Idols.
