Pop singer Toya Delazy will join Arno Carstens and Oskido as judges on this week’s episode of The X Factor South Africa, to be broadcast on SABC 1 on Saturday, December 6, at 6pm.
Toya will also be the guest act on the results show this week, which follows at 7.30pm, where the Top 3 will be revealed.
Delazy will be stepping in for Zonke following this week’s tragic passing of the X-Factor judge’s sister Lulu Dinkana.
Says Delazy: “Our thoughts and prayers are with Zonke and her family during this difficult time. She has been a wonderful mentor to her acts and I will do my best to fill her shoes and provide support for Wandaboy and Eliezer. We hope to do her proud.”
Zonke issued a message through her management thanking people for all the messages of condolence that she and her family have received as well as sending her support and encouragement to Wandaboy and Eliezer ahead of this weekend’s show.
