"One thing I promised myself and my supporters on my return to @idolssa is that I'm bring my heart soul and everything.... attention to every freaken detail....taking my place and space...rightfully so....coz your prayers can not go to waste....shaming the my all....your in for a ride......because SOMIZI is back with a glittering BANG," he promised.

Somizi returns on Idols season 13 with new fresh faces and contributors to the music industry, JR Bogopa and Thembi Seete.

“We’re excited to have Idols SA return for an incredible 18th season. To have such longevity in such a fast-changing industry is no small feat, and we’re proud to keep giving our viewers what they love. One of the key components in having staying power is evolution, and our new-look panel is part of that,” says Nomsa Philiso, Executive Head of Programming: General Entertainment.
Idols SA is an important part of our creative industry. Not only do we unearth hidden talent, but we also nurture our contestants and equip them with the necessary tools to start or grow their careers. It’s a privilege to be able to do that for another season,” she continued. 

JR's bae Tshepi Vundla threw him a surprise party and it was everything you imagined. The couple who just welcomed their second baby together, are elated at this major win.

Tshepi said she is super proud of him, "We are so proud of you Baby, we know you going to kill it because you are a musical genius."

Thembi is also super elated at her major win.

But fans are more excited at this especially since Somizi is back, they promised to stop watching the show and the numbers proved that they have indeed stopped indulging.

His exit was a result of abuse allegations made by ex husband Mohale via a leaked tape. Mohale was disappointed that it got leaked, "I trusted the person with whom I was engaging and did not divulge such details for any material gain. In these conversations, I was laying case to reason (sic) why I would not want the details of our divorce to be used in the upcoming season of the reality show as this would not reflect the complete truth and furthermore, did not want the details thereof to be used for financial gain."
