From farmworker... to farm Idol
Ayabonga Mhobo left his job as a farmworker after he won 2014 Agri’s Got Talent competition.
CAPE TOWN - From farmworker to farm idol... one man's voice is now inspiring an entire Boland community thanks to a singing contest.
The Agri's Got Talent competition aims to uplift diamonds in the rough on South African farms.
Since winning the 2014 Agri's Got Talent contest, Ayabonga Mhobo has left his job on a farm and now works full-time to plough his passion for music back into the Mbekweni community.
Through his full-time role at NGO Norsa, he's inspiring youngsters in the area to reach and sing for their dreams.
The next batch of talented fruit and wine farmworkers will take the stage soon when the top 10 finalists for 2015 are announced, giving another gifted individual a chance to be recognised for their singing talents.
