It also seems like its going to be a busy summer for Dineo Ranaka as she seems to be the only guest judge to get a thumbs-up from viewers since Mzansi’s favourite singing competition said goodbye to Somizi. The producers of Idols SA came up with the idea of introducing a different guest judge each week to make up for the massive personality being absent. SABC news reports that Somizi will not be leaving Idols permanently but is rather taking a bit of time off from work. The publication reports that the media personality was granted time off to deal with personal matters. So, to keep viewers engaged in the show, Idols SA producers decided to invite a different celeb to join the judging panel each week.
