It all started with several thousands of dreams. And nine months later, it has all boiled down to one dream that has come true for one contestant – Luyolo Yiba, SA Idols winner for 2019.

In a tightly-contested competition, Yiba was named the winner of the 15TH season of SA Idols at the Idols finale at the Big Top Arena at Carnival City in Ekurhuleni, with KwaZulu-Natal’s Sneziey Msomi the runner-up.

The 24-year-old software developer from King William’s Town auditioned in Cape Town, and week after week captured the imagination of Idols fans as the dark horse who progressed to be a true contender for the Idols title, ultimately emerging victorious.
