Viggy and Virginia it’s either they are so arrogant, hiding some truth, dishonest or lacking some ability to think when they take decisions. But their father’s new revelations are point back to Idols SA as a competition that lacks some honesty.dols SA’s Qwabe twins,
- I didn’t quit because my sister was eliminated – Viggy,
- Viggy is not continuing because of my elimination – Virginia,
- I have never and will never bully anyone – Sneziey,
- There was information leaked on Wednesday – Laurence Qwabe,
- Qwabe twins confirmed that they were not bullied in any way – Mzansi Magic’s Philly Kubheka,
- Police were called in to stop the violence – Eyewitness account.
On Sunday, Virginia didn’t get enough votes to keep her in the Idols SA season 15 but after the live show, Viggy decided to follow her sister and dump the competition.
Laurence Qwabe, the twin’s father, spoke to Daily Sun on Tuesday in Stanger, KwaZulu Natal, that he advised Viggy to drop out of the competition.
He said to the paper that it became clear to them that if they continued voting, they’re just wasting their money. He alleges that it’s clear that Idols SA is no longer fair.
“That’s why I took a decision to take my children out of the competition because they were going to lose their minds.”
Meanwhile, Viggy Qwabe said that she is not a quitter and she’s not quitting because of her twin sister’s elimination.
“Bafethu siyabonga for your support. Unfortunately, I have decided not to continue with the competition. I am not a quitter, I am not quitting because o Wele was eliminated. we are both strong and able to stand on our own. We were both aware that we both won’t win and one of us would leave but not in the way it was done yesterday. I cannot stay when that has happened to my sister. Thank you for your love and support. We appreciate all your hard work. God bless you,” she took to her Facebook page at 10:55 am (CAT) on Monday.
However, her twin sister, Virginia Qwabe took to her Facebook page to say that Viggy is not continuing because of her elimination.
“Bafethu Ngiyabonga for everything. You have loved me and o Wele so much. We are blessed to have had your support throughout. Viggy is not continuing because of my elimination, we are strong knowing that one would leave. But God knows all. Siyabonga kakhulu for your support,” Virginia Qwabe posted on her Facebook page on the same Monday at 10:58 am (CAT).
If the Qwabe twins can contradict each other so bad one doesn’t see the reason why wouldn’t they live their separate lives, including careers.
There are rumours doing rounds that the Qwabe’s were actually bullied by a fellow contestant, Snenhlanhla Msomi also known as Sneziey and she has since dismissed those allegations as false.
“I have never and will never bully anyone but kuyosizani to talk when everyone has made up their minds about me. I wish all that you have believed was firmly stated by the twins and sadly it wasn’t,” says Sneziey Msomi.
Mzansi Magic’s Philly Kubheka also confirmed that there was no bullying that took place, including stating that they have confirmed with the Qwabe’s that they were not bullied.
The big question, are the Qwabe’s the actual bullies? Or simply Idols SA is hiding something from the public?
There’s a screenshot that is also doing the rounds on social media that alleges that when Viggy was performing her family was backstage fighting with Idols SA production team, this after they apparently asked Viggy to leave the competition because they were robbed.
“Yesterday (Sunday) I was there (Idols SA live recording) live on Idols, excited and happy to support my girl Sneziey and what really broke my spirit is what the twins’ family did. So Virginia was eliminated as you saw on TV but what we experienced as the audience was painful.
“They (family) all stood up and left Viggy to perform on her own because they were sad, angry and asked the production to show the votes. When Viggy was performing the family was no longer there (in the audience) to support her but they were fighting the production backstage. After they asked that Viggy leaves the competition too cause barojiwe (they were robbed during vote-counting).
“Not to mention the violence and SAPS coming in whilst the show was rolling and to show how professional Idols are you saw nothing. Thanks to amaPiano as we danced to the music trying hard not to be part of the commotion…” says Nikiwe Nontshiza Thanda who claims to have witnessed the alleged drama that took place at the Idols SA house on Sunday.
Looking at all versions of the story one would actually trust the version by the twins’ father, Laurence Qwabe. Demanding to see votes when you feel like you’ve been cheated on is the right thing to do. There are rumours that at a certain stage, Idols SA already knows their winner before the actual competition ends. So, if the father says there was information leaked, that sounds fair enough for him to ask his daughter to pull out from the competition.
