PIETERMARITZBURG Idols SA 2014 winner, Vincent Bones, praised Noma Khumalo, a Pietermaritzburg resident and finalist in the latest Idols series.

Bones was at the Oasis Life Ministries Church over the weekend where he gave an evocative stage performance.

Bones was crowned the Idols SA season 10 winner two years ago.

His rise to fame has not led to the 31-year-old forgetting his humble beginnings.

Bones said he is grateful for the support he has received from the people of Pietermaritzburg.

He said that although a demanding career requires him to travel regularly, he nevertheless felt happy to spend time in fellowship with the church.

Bones is working on a collaboration with artists from across Africa.

Post-Idols, Bones released a debut album - Shaded Soul - in 2015.

He said the local songbird deserves to be where she is and should be supported.

“She has been consistent throughout the season. She must just keep doing her best and leave the rest to the voters. Whether she wins or not, she will definitely be a successful musician,” he said.

Bones, who lived on the street growing up, urged young stars to keep their dream alive, no matter how hard it might be.

“Dreams can only become reality if you keep them alive,” he said.
