Sing it!

We have a new singing con­test on the cards. Yes, yet another one – this time called I Can Sing.

The prelaunch kicked off with a prayer, which makes one think that the fo­cus will be on gospel mu­sic.

The show’s hosts were in at­ten­dance, in­clud­ing the tal­ented Bon­tle Modis­elle, who is also quite the dancer. Her boyfriend, Priddy Ugly, newly signed to Am­bi­tious Records, was with her.

For­mer Miss SA Liesl Lau­rie will also be host­ing the show, and she looked lovely in a classy white frock.

The judges (Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Don Laka and Jesse Clegg) will not be judg­ing, we were told – they will be de­vel­op­ing.

The show’s cre­ator, In­no­cent Mabuza, said money wasn’t an is­sue for I Can Sing be­cause he has it cov­ered, and Chaka Chaka reaf­firmed this.

“In­no­cent is rich, guys. If he can af­ford me, then he is rich,” she quipped af­ter bless­ing the room with an im­promptu a cap­pella per­for­mance. She also told me that she was get­ting ready to re­lease a new al­bum this year.
