JOHANNESBURG — Zimbabwean Tendai Dikinya was among the winners in last night’s finale of the SABC 1 talent show U Can Do It!
Along with Phaksy, Marvin, Musa and Khayalakhe, Tendai will share a prize of R150 000 plus a recording deal with Universal Records.
Their group in which Tendai, known in these parts as Crimson Blu was the only girl, will now work their way into a commercial super-group which we hear is called The Maples.
The 23-year-old caught the eye of many after she featured on Tatea Da MC’s award-winning track H Town.
According to the show’s website, Tendai currently works as a sports coach and administration officer.
She entered the show to realise her lifelong dream of becoming a world renowned musician, artist, writer and poet.
Her biggest hope is to make a mark and breakthrough on the South African music scene.
She first realised that performing is her passion when she used to sing at all school events in pre-school.
The talent show is based on the search, discovery, moulding and the success of the new superstars.
The show is hosted by entrepreneur and pioneering artiste, kwaito king Arthur Mafokate, as a mentor and main judge.
