The winner of THE NXT LVL is..
Five undiscovered but talented musical acts, five passionate mentors, 10 weeks, R1 million in prizes, an eccentric host, thousands of fans, loads of talent and valuable career and life advice. That’s what the first-ever NXT LVL Show, sponsored by Vodacom and broadcast on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161), delivered.
Despite being at the bottom of the leaderboard for the majority of the show, afro-soul jazz musician Zethembiso Mdletshe won over the fans to be crowned the first-ever NXT LVL winner.
After her powerful performance of her debut hit single “Zazi” at the live finale I think we can all agree that dynamite mos def comes in small packages. Zethe may be small in stature but her voice, presence and now career are huge and will be taken to the NXT LVL .
All the contestants thrilled their mentors and the audience with bold, confident and polished performances, and there’s no doubt that each of them have a long and promising career in the music industry. Shout Out to all the contestants.
