[LISTEN] Yanga Sobetwa on investing 'Idols' winnings & inspiring through gospel

The teenager from Delft is already proving her star status - her first single 'Scars' hit the top of the charts in the same week it was released.

CAPE TOWN - It's a little over a week since Yanga Sobetwa (17) from Delft followed in the footsteps of Paxton Fielies - making Cape Town proud by scooping the title of _Idols SA _winner for 2018.

The teenager, the youngest in the season 14 competition, faced off against Thato Makape in the live season finale which saw her take the _Idols _crown - winning not only a coveted record deal but also R1 million in prize money.

She sat down with Cape Talk's Sara-Jayne King to talk about her win, her love for her fans and how it feels to be a millionaire at just 17.

"I was planning on freezing the money, if not most of it, half of it and investing into a property as well," she says.

Sobetwa says she'll be putting out music that is reflective of her background in gospel: "From the get-go, I mentioned that I wanted to be a gospel artist. I want to draw teenagers closer to God through music."
