Performing for the first time on home turf, Idols contender Khaya Mthethwa said he was surprised and overwhelmed by the crowd’s response at the Durban Day concert yesterday.
Mthethwa got the crowd of thousands going crazy by performing Earth Wind and Fire’s September, Keri Hilson’s Knock You Down and R Kelly’s The World’s Greatest, the songs that won him the hearts of millions of Idols viewers.
“I am just so overwhelmed by the love the Durban people have shown me,” he said.
Mthethwa, of Durban North, has been away from home for three months while taking part in the Idols competition. He described the first month as tough, but said he had eased into the change.
“There is something about Durban that makes me smile; we have a very beautiful city and I’ve missed it,” he said.
“I wouldn’t have got this far in the competition had it not been for the support of my family and the whole of Durban
“I just have to keep on reinventing and pushing myself,” said Mthethwa.
