ICYMI: Luyolo Yiba wins SA Idols 2019


After a gruelling 9 months, it has all boiled down to one dream that has come true for Luyolo Yiba, SA Idols winner for 2019.

In a tightly-contested competition, Yiba was named the winner of the 15TH season of SA Idols at the Idols finale at the Big Top Arena at Carnival City in Ekurhuleni, with KwaZulu-Natal’s Sneziey Msomi the runner-up.

The 24-year-old software developer from King William’s Town auditioned in Cape Town, and week after week captured the imagination of Idols fans as the dark horse who progressed to be a true contender for the Idols title, ultimately emerging victorious.


Yiba has won a recording deal from Gallo, and also becomes an instant millionaire, with R1m in cash and a Ford Fiesta, among other prizes.

Congratulations to Luyola Yiba
