Mucisian and actress Thembi Seete says she had never imagined she would one day join the Idols SA judging panel.

She described her new gig as a dream.

Thembi Seete is a new addition to the Idols SA Season 18 judges together with rapper JR Bogopa.


Somizi Mhlongo also returned following his suspension last season after his estranged husband leveled abuse allegations against him.

Thembi Seete once appeared as guest judge on Season 17.

In an Instagram post, the pop culture icon wrote:

“It feels like a dream. It’s as if someone woke me up and said, don’t worry, you had a wild imagination”.

She added that although she was nervous she was excited by the new venture.
