Mzansi Magic has slammed claims that Idols SA judges have the power to manipulate contestants’ results and that the voting is rigged.

This comes after Somizi Mhlongo predicted one of the Qwabe twins would be going home on Sunday night’s show.

The channel has responded to a social media uproar in which users and fans said that Somizi had a hand in Virginia Qwabe being eliminated from the singing competition.

Somizi was called out for “knowing something”, after he was asked by host Proverb who he thought faced elimination.

Somgaga responded that “one of the twins” was “going home tonight”.

But Philly Kubheka, head of PR & Publicity at Local Entertainment Channels slammed claims of vote-rigging and said all votes were verified by auditors.

She said: “Mzansi Magic is satisfied as to the credibility of the Idols SA Season 15 voting process.

“The vote count and ranking on contestants were independently computed by Deloitte and Touche, and confirmed against the vote results determined by M-Net.”

Philly said judges give predictions and commentary, but “can in no way alter the computation and outcomes of the public vote”, adding that “no bullying is tolerated”.

This comes after allegations of drama behind the scenes following Virginia’s elimination. The twins’ dad reportedly demanded to see the results and told Viggy to exit the show.

Officials released a statement on Thursday after the father of former contestants Viggy and Virginia Qwabe, labelled the show a scam.

Laurence Qwabe claimed in an interview with the Daily Sun that an insider revealed ahead of Sunday night’s elimination that Virginia would be going home.

Rumours doing the rounds also claimed that the judges got to pick who would be eliminated. There were also whispers of bullying taking place behind the scenes. Idols SA spokesperson Philly Kubheka denied the claims.

Meanwhile, Idols SA judge Unathi clapped back at an Instagram user who blamed the drama on her
The user claimed that Unathi pushed for both the twins to make it to the top 16 (which ended up being a top 17), while overlooking other talent. “People like her are the reason why we think this show is rigged,” the woman wrote.

Unathi replied with a spicy comment.

“You sound STUPID. You’re going to say ME… Like I have THAT much POWER. Randal, Somizi and Multichoice could have said NO but we all wanted. BUT you’re going to BLAME the only woman. You’re STUPIIIIIIIID,” she wrote.
