Msengana worst Idols judge ever

By Reader Comment | 2011-08-11 07:02:24.0 | COMMENTS [ 80 ]

I REFER to the article "Dave van Vuuren steals the show" in Sowetan of August 8.

Taking musical diva Mara Louw's seat on South African Idols was already a tough task.

The fact is, amateurish Unathi Msengana, pictured, was the worst Idols judge ever. Her awful judging didn't feel right for discovering or nurturing new talent.

She replaced Louw though there are wonderful judges such as jazz lady Shado Twala and Metro FM' s Azania Mosaka.

I would like to know how the judges are chosen. I know they have to be a bit controversial, but Msengana hasn't got it.

She's boring as a singer. She certainly does not have any musical talent. She irritates viewers when she laughs stupidly at contestants and she hasn't any brilliant music knowledge. How she got a job on Metro FM is beyond me.

South Africa needs black pop idols but I don't see how this judge will help black talent win the title because the show sells black musicians outside the cut-throat music industry.

Mara Louw was right about bringing it to the people. Just like Miyeni, if you criticise anything white you get fired.

Tsabeng Metsiameneng, S..hole Ya this is sowetan spotting some nice talent, Yee!!...Why should everthin be given to us black people? ye I do agree that we have a lot of "BLACK" talent out there but its yet to be found on Idols...Whats this about SA needs a Black pop Idols..Why dont you go and try your luck on Idols smtime and see how far you go seeming that you know so much about judging and singing...Unathi is a beautiful and talented "BLACK" woman you insulting her like that, is totally unacceptable..This is how black artist are rising and falling because of jeolous childish "WHAT WHATS" like you..Writing smting in a newspaper takes talent and obviously you aint got any...Thats only my jugdment on you...OHH why should everthin always be about black and white..Racism and changed faces...

Surely the writer has a problem with Unathi...yes Shado Twala could have done a better job maybe because we saw her on SA got talent but as for Azania, I dont know were she fits in here cause she is not really doing much justice to total bliss (her radio show). Stop complaining about a black idol not winning and start voting...this show is not about the judges but your vote at the end of the day. How many black talent have we seen in the top 10 and watch them go out of the show because we didnt vote - now stop wrting complaint letters and vote

It's like complaining about the small number of black players in the Springbok squad, but keeping quiet about the complete lack of white players in the Bafana squad.

You are just being racist.

now you a wrong look in sringbok racism is showing in balck and white you dont need Binoculars ti indentify it for e.g they just beaten our brothers from Soweto becouse soweta boys castrated them in the beach now soccer is open for everyone is just you white have no interest in it becouse is dominated by blacks but few whites show up these days in suppoters in coaches in management

Did you, the writer of this article, complain when, year after year, blacks won the (Coca Cola) Pop Stars competition?

I don't think so.

It's like complaining about the small number of black players in the Springbok squad, but keeping quiet about the complete lack of white players in the Bafana squad.

You are just being racist.
