The kick master will be on the show this weekend, giving his feedback on some of the auditions. The Twitter streets are already filled with anticipation and a video has been shared across the platform giving fans a glimpse of what to expect.

I have been waiting for this for so long. It is like a dream come true. I wish I could be onIdols more because I love Idols and the judging panel,” he told TshisaLIVE.
He said that this week’s show would determine whether he has a chance of getting a spot on the judging panel permanently.
“The people will decide. Maybe now they can make me the fourth judge on the show. But as a visitor it was a great experience, they were professional and it was a lot of fun.”
After Gareth Cliff left the show Malinga publicly declared that he should work for the production.
Malinga has previously been a judge on the e.tv music talent search Turn Up and Dance,and will also be making a cameo appearance as a judge on the upcoming SABC 1 music show The Remix SA.
