There's a party atmosphere when we arrive at the home of the Idols SA season 11 winner in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga. There’s ululating from the windows of a convoy of cars as they play the singer’s debut album, Love is a Verb, from speakers at full volume.

The newly-crowned Idols star, Karabo Mogane (24), has just returned home from collecting his silver-grey Ford Fiesta at a local car dealership. It’s one of the many prizes he scooped when he won the popular reality singing competition.
