Vhudi gave the judges a stellar performance during his audition, singing his very own song My Yoki Yoki, which ultimately won the hearts of many. Somizi Mhlongo, Unathi Nkayi, Randall Abrahams, and Buhle Mda could not stop singing along him.
Vhudi gave the judges and avid watchers of the show goosebumps and his appearance on the show trended on Twitter, with many hyping high praises on his performance.
Speaking to Sowetan recently, the 20-year-old explained the meaning of the track.“I was trying to impress someone when I wrote the song,” he told the publication.“I didn’t get the girl, but she was very excited about the song. Yes, My Yoki Yoki is shortened from ‘My Yonkinto’. It just came up as I was writing the song.
Vhudi finally released the song at midnight, and his fans are on cloud nine. The singer was recently eliminated from the singing competition and his fans were left disappointed but this did not discourage him at all.
