DURBAN - Idols SA finalist Mthokozisi Ndaba has joined Durban’s Vibe FM as a radio presenter.

Ndaba, who was runner-up in the Idols SA competition last year, will steer the four-hour Zonke Bonke Youth Drive on the KwaMashu-based radio station, which runs from 2-to-6 pm on Fridays.

The show is about youth empowerment and entertainment.

Ndaba was a much-loved participant in the singing competition but narrowly lost out to Cape Town’s singing teen sensation Paxton Fielies.

However, Ndaba was heavily criticised for storming off the stage after losing the competition and also did not attend a post-event press conference.

Ndaba, 25, appeared in court briefly where he faced charges of assaulting a young woman two weeks ago.

Shortly after, a Johannesburg woman then accused him of assault, but charges were later withdrawn.

Speaking to the Sunday Tribune’s sister paper, Isolezwe, Ndaba said he was happy to land the gig.

“I am happy that I have got a good slot where I will be able to spend a lot of time with the people and not just be heard for a few minutes,” he said.

“I am happy for the opportunity that I have received and I hope the listeners enjoyed our first show last Friday,” he said, admitting he was nervous ahead of his first show.
