According to reports, 'Idols SA' runner-up Mthokozisi Ndaba is not fairing well after losing the title to Cape Town's Paxton Fielies in the competition's Sunday night finale.
After 17-year-old Paxton was announced as the winner, KwaZulu-Natal's Mthokozisi Ndaba walked off staged and has reportedly denied any interview requests.
M-Net's head of PR, Nondumiso Mabece, reportedly said the 25-year-old runner-up has requested space to come to terms with losing the competition.
"Mthokozisi has requested to be given time to come to terms with the result of the Idols show. He will indicate when he is ready to speak to the media," Mabece told TshisaLive.
"He is currently receiving assistance to deal with emotions involved in this situation."
