Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Idol Sasha-Lee Davids spoke to Sowetan yesterday after romping home with M-Net's talent show's big prize.
"The feeling right now is quite amazing.
"I never thought I stood any chance against Jason (Hartman). I just stood there frozen, waiting for the results and all I knew at that moment was that it was not going to be me," she said.
The attractive Cape Town singer added that for now family and friends would just have to take a back seat as she has set her eyes on "conquering show business".
She was clearly thrilled that she had been given a massive vote of approval from music fans from all over South Africa.
"Right now I am busy with interviews and am fully booked this week.
"In fact, I will not be relaxing any time soon because my schedule is totally full.
"What comes first for me is to make sure I grab the opportunities that are available to me in music."
Sasha-Lee, who went toe-to-toe with Hartman until that very moment on Sunday when she staged her coup by convincing the voting public that she deserved to be the outright winner, thanked her " thousands of fans" for their confidence in her.
"Some of the fans are the ones who have supported me from the beginning right to the very end of this competition.
"Right now the reality of winning has not yet really sunk in," said the young lady from Atlantis.
