2013-01-23 12:26
Cape Town - Idols winner Khaya Mthethwa will be US music star Miguel's opening act during his tour in South Africa, according to the Sowetan Live.

The 25-year-old singer, who was crowned as South Africa's first black Idol in 2012, has since made a name for himself in the music industry and recently signed on as a regional judge for Mzansi Magic's reality show Clash of the Choir's SA.

Metro FM listeners had the chance to vote for the artist who they want to see opening for Miguel during his South African tour, and Khaya stepped out on top.

Dates confirmed?

Speaking to Sowetan Live, Khaya said he is pretty excited and feels ready to step up to the challenge.

"I have done opening acts for international gospel artists such as Israel Houghton and Kirk Franklin, but never in the R&B genre."

He also confirmed that he will have 20 minutes to perform, before the Grammy-winning artist takes to the stage.

According to Sowetan Live, Miguel is expected to perform at the Standard Bank Arena in Johannesburg on 1 and 2 March, and at the Grand West Casino in Cape Town on 3 March.

South African blog Orgella Entertainment also reported that the above dates have been confirmed, according to TKO Productions, who will be bringing Miguel to South Africa.
