Johannesburg - Seven hoirmasters, 140 singers and a cash prize of R750 000.
It all started nine weeks ago when seven choirs – representing Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Free State, Western Cape, Mpumalanga, North West and Limpopo – had the nation glued to their screens on Sunday evenings, displaying their vocal abilities in a battle to win the cash prize of R500 000 for the winning choir, and R250 000 for its charity of choice.
And, last night, Clash of the Choirs ended with last year’s Pop Idols winner Khaya Mthethwa’s KZN choir beating renowned kwaito star Zwai Bala’s Mpumalanga choir.
The show, which was aired on Dstv’s Mzansi Magic channel from 5.30pm, had the twitterati and facebookers sharing their views on everything from the hairstyle of the show’s host, Bonang Matheba, to the judges’ dress sense.
Each choir consisted of 20 members.
