She took to Twitter to thank those who supported and voted for her.

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.
