“That place was heaven. I had the best experience in a working environment in that place. From the crew, I have never seen a place where everyone is happy to be there. From the guys who do my mic, the ladies who do the makeup, and everyone else. From the drivers to the security to the producers, to everybody guys, that environment was amazing,” Som added.

“For me personally, When i joined Idols, I was famous, but I became a superstar because of Idols. I wouldn’t be as influential as I am if not for South African Idols. and for that I will forever be grateful.”

“The band and singers are beautiful and super talented. Thanks to the audience. I know God has so many things in store. Unto the next one,” he concluded.
