Connect TV, the production company behind the show, launched a nationwide search for the replacement of Thembisa Mdoda, who announced her resignation from the show in August.
Congratulations continue to pour in for Ngqula, who takes over the reigns in January.

But not everyone is happy.
When the top six were announced, people questioned why only contestants from the Eastern Cape had been selected and not representatives from other parts of the country.
