SA Idols Viewers Are Not Happy With Unathi Aftet She Did This

Unathi has successfully made Idols SA fans really upset after the harsh comment she made to S22kile. Lately people have been questioning Unathi and her double standards. It all started when she publicly denied her friendship with Somizi Mhlongo after he left the Idols judge panel, because of the allegations against him by his estranged husband Mogale. The two would post pictures and videos of each other when they were still working together. " Chom chom" that's how they'd call each other but according to the singer and radio presenter, they are not friends.

Tonight's episode on Idols, S22kile performed 'Ntyilo ntyilo' a song by Rethabile. She sang the lyrics exactly like Rethabile does on the original song, but that got her in trouble with Unathi. She was harshly judged by Unathi for singing the song like the original artist does and not according to the lyrics. So basically the fuss is about the pronunciation of Ntyilo that got her in hot water.

In the same episode, she spoke broken Sotho. Is that okay because she's a judge? Why is it a problem when non Xhosa speaking individuals make pronunciation mistakes when trying to speak Xhosa and it's okay when its Xhosa people breaking other languages? That to me seems like double standards. If Unathi was really bothered by the way 'Ntyilo Ntyilo' is being pronounced, she should have taken it up with Rethabile. The whole of South Africa is singing what they hear form the artist. Read comments as people continue to express their dissapointments about Unathi's behavior on tonight's show.
