Twitter was raging after a media influencer tweeted on Friday expressing that 2018 #IdolsSA Winner, Yanga Sobetwa, hasn’t got her million yet. He also said he reached the channel to hear more details regarding this.
However, as indicated by them, she was 17 when she won. They spoke with her and she didn’t want the cash to go into her mother’s account.
So Mzansi Magic needed to hold up till she is 18 so they can pay her directly,” he tweeted. This morning journalist addressed Yanga, who said she’s mindful of the flowing tweet.
The cash issue has been settled and there’s no requirement for people to share that tweet,” she said.
