“Radio presenting contestant­s were under the mentorship of TruFM programme manager Masi Mdingane, musicians were mentored by popular Xhosa rapper iFani while dancers spent the weekend with seasoned choreograp­her Simphiwe Mba.

The two finalists in the radio presenting category are Port Elizabeth’s Makosandil­e Mpunzi and Mdantsane FM’s Silulami Bunu.

Ngcobo said music recorded their version song.

“These recordings have been receiving airplay on the station since September 26 as the contestant­s appeal to listeners to vote for them, while the dancers had video recordings taken of their dance pieces.”
