Flanked by two ballerinas, a dark screen behind him and otherworldly blue lights, Zakes Bantwini made an outstanding impression when he appeared on the Idols stage. It certainly gave us a case of goose bumps...
Hailing from Durban, this musician once told City Press: “I am about dance music. My name, Zakes, is a nickname from my real name Zakhele Madida and Bantwini is from my friends because I am a people’s person.”
You gotta watch his performance again:
Folks took to social media to gush about his show:
