It's been over a decade since the last group from the TV reality show, Coca-Cola Pop Stars, was formed and we miss them.
Coca-Cola pop stars was an absolute success in the early 2000's. We were spoiled with talent from the likes of 101, Adilah, Ghetto Lingo, Jamali and Afro-Z; we all loved them.
The first group to be formed from the TV show was 101. The members of the group included Kurt Herman, who is currently working as background vocalist and voice coach for Idols SA if there is anybody who knows where she is, please holla at us. Then there was Erin Samson, if there is anybody who knows where she is, please holla at us wherever you are, we hope you are doing well.
Preston Sihlangu, we remember him joining Arthur Mafokate's stable 999 and we can't forget his relationship with talented group member Ntumiseng Mokhasipe who also disappeared on us.
And of course, there was Pam Andrews who used the platform she was given very well. She aced her acting on shows like Backstage and Rhythm City, last year she relocated to Europe with her son and partner.
Fast forward to 2003, the year of our favorite group to come out of the TV show, Adilah. Super talented Thembisile Ntaka is the only member of this group who is pushing this music thing and we must say, she is doing well and looking great.
We are not sure about the whereabouts of the rest of the group members, Karabo Motlhabi, Letang Tlome, Refiloe Motha and Itumeleng Kgosana.
2004 is the year that brought us two groups from the Pop Stars, Jamali and Ghetto Lingo. The girl group, Jamali had to compete with the guy group Ghetto Lingo and even though they didn't win the competition, they surpassed the success of their male counterparts and were actually the most successful group to come out of the reality show.
Ghetto Lingo included Martin Phike, who flushed his Sisqo moves down the drain and branched to Gospel.
The members of the girl group Jamali may have branched to pursue their own solo careers but we're glad to see that they still perform as a group.
S'busiso, Philemon and Bjorn please make a come back.
And then there was Afro-Z. Zzzzhhh!
Coca-Cola Pop Stars kept us glued to our TV screens and we honestly miss those days. The story of all these groups is a clear example of how you're only as good as your last hit song, this industry is difficult!
