Thapelo Molomo, who was the winner of season 18 of the South African singing competition show “Idols SA,” has recently joined the Spirit of Praise gospel group as a lead vocalist. On Saturday, the group introduced its new members, including Thapelo and fellow Idols star Mmatema Moremi, during a live recording at the SunBet Arena in Menlyn, Pretoria. Thapelo shared the news with his followers on social media and has been posting clips from the live recording on his Instagram stories.
“I did a collaboration with Spirit of Praise this past weekend, May 27. I’m a new family member of SOP, and the fans can expect so many things from me with the family. I was there as a backing vocalist before. It’s just that now I come as a lead vocalist.
“We are hoping for great outcomes; we are hoping for the longevity of relationships with them. Fans can expect my music with them because we did a recording with them,” he explained to news reporters
“The experience this time is honestly beautiful because I come in as a lead singer, not a backing vocalist. That alone, for me, was a highlight to say; indeed, dreams do come true. You started at the back; today, you are at the front line.
“It brings about motivation to many that they need to hold on and wait their turn because things can change at any time. I don’t think anyone thought I would be where I am today, and here I am doing it.”
