The real reason why Viggy & Virginia Qwabe left Idols SA even though they were supposed to win finally revealed

The exit of the Qwabe twins from the 15th season of Idols SA has been shrouded in controversy, with new revelations shedding light on the behind-the-scenes drama that unfolded.

Despite earlier assertions by Mzansi Magic denying any instances of bullying or physical altercations among contestants, recent reports indicate a different narrative. Behind-the-scenes chaos erupted during a showdown between the Qwabe family and Mzansi Magic production, allegedly leading to threats against one of the show’s publicists.

The situation escalated to the point where the South African police service was called in to intervene. While the Qwabe family has refrained from commenting on the allegations, their father, Laurence Qwabe, expressed concerns about the integrity of the Idols SA voting process, alleging that it was rigged.

Laurence stated that he advised his daughters to avoid speaking to the media and has kept them away from public scrutiny in KwaZulu-Natal. He claimed that the family felt they were “wasting money” by supporting the twins in the competition and decided to remove them due to concerns about their well-being.

In response to inquiries about the alleged backstage incident and police intervention, Philly Kubheka, head of publicity for M-Net’s local entertainment channels, confirmed that the Qwabe family and some fans were aggressive and demanded the twins’ removal during a live broadcast. The police were called to ensure everyone’s safety.

Regarding allegations of vote rigging, Mzansi Magic maintains the credibility of the voting process, stating that it was independently computed and confirmed by Deloitte and Touche.

The network emphasized that the judges’ predictions and commentary do not influence the computation or outcomes of the public vote and reiterated its commitment to respecting talent and crew members while condemning any form of bullying.
