Miss SA organisers have said they aim to bring the best local talent to their stage for the 2021 pageant. First on their incredible lineup is the Ndlovu Youth Choir. 

The Ndlovu Youth Choir is described as one of the world’s most treasured groups. The choir hails all the way from the beautiful Limpopo province and has performed several hits including Toto’s Africa, U2’s Beautiful Day and Ed Sheeran’s chart-topping hit Shape Of You

The powerhouse choir made history on America’s Got Talent (AGT) and became the first choir on both AGT and Britain’s Got Talent to reach the final stage of the competition. 

The Ndlovu Youth Choir’s manager Josh Georgiou says the choir will be performing three songs at the pageant, two originals and a song that featured in the movie, The Greatest Showman.


Zakes Bantwini has already proven that 2021 is his year! Bantwini took South African by storm after the release of his latest single Osama at the beginning of September. The single had every music lover in the country jamming along to the hit and it quickly hit the global music scene. American DJ Diplo included the song in one of his sets.

The 41-year-old musician has an incredible catalogue of music and has delivered hit after hit. Some of his most popular songs include Clap Your Hands, Bum Bum, and Bang Bang Bang
