 The ex-Idols SA contestant is always looking for new challenges The 2015 Idols SA runner-up has been fighting to cement her name and presence in the entertainment industry and trying to avoid the trap of the “fleeting fame” that usually follows former Idols singers.

She announced that she’ll be hosting a new gospel show called Gospel Unplugged and told TshisaLIVE all about it.

“I feel really blessed to be part of this show‚ considering it's a brand new show and nothing will be compared to it and I’ll not be compared to any other presenter. I've been doing my show on One Gospel every New Year's Eve but this one is big because it will be playing every Sunday.”

Mmatema explained that her short stint on One Gospel’s New Year’s Eve show was all she needed as she just received the call that she’s been chosen as the host.  

“One of the things I wanted to do outside music was act and present. I got a role to act on SABC 2 alongside Aubrey Pooe‚ Warren Masemola and many great actors. That role really did open my mind and made me believe I can now do anything. I've always wanted to present‚” she told TshisaLIVE.

Taking a similar route to that of Khaya Mthethwa‚ who went from church‚ to Idols‚ to TV then back to church again‚ Mmatema explained that it was all about embracing the gift of versatility.

“I've been blessed with the gift of versatility and I do not limit myself to one genre. My album is titled Love Praise Worship it has songs for everyone and that is what I believe in."
