South Africa’s very first Masked Singer has been crowned, and the honor goes to none other than the sensational SAMA-award winning singer herself, Holly Rey!
Holly Rey as the Lollipop
The enchanting Lollipop, as she was cunningly disguised, proved that she had the sweetest tunes and the slickest moves reports The Citizen. She claimed victory over fierce competition. Competitors included Lion (played by the remarkable Abdul Khoza) and Tree (unmasked as the charismatic Maps Maponyane).
As the confetti rained down on the stage, Holly Rey graciously accepted her golden mask trophy, beaming with pride.
“I had the time of my life doing this, it was like being a kid the whole time,” said Holly Rey.
