And the winner is…..Paxton Fielies


CAPE TOWN – Idols South Africa winner Paxton Fielies says that she’s now setting her sights on building her singing career.

The Capetonian was crowned the winner of 13 season on Sunday in Johannesburg.

Cape Town teenager Paxton Fielies bagged the most votes to become one of the youngest winners of Idols SA 2017.

The petite 17-year-old won the title at a spectacular finale at Carnival City in Johannesburg on Sunday evening.

Fielies received the majority of the viewers’ votes when she and Mthokozisi Ndaba‚ 25‚ from KwaMashu in Durban‚ made the final two after months of battle against thousands of contestants.

On Sunday‚ accompanied by the multi award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir‚ Fielies performed Stand Up for Love by Destiny’s Child and Ndaba sang R. Kelly’s The Storm Is Over. They also collaborated on a remix of Back To The Beach by Kyle Deutsch and Shekinah.

An excited Fielies‚ who sacrificed her Grade 11 year‚ said she had decided with the support of her mother that 2017 would be a risk-taker year.

“It was a risk worth taking. But I intend completing my studies while doing gigs and shows. My goal is to make it internationally.

“The highlight apart from winning Idols was performing on my birthday during the season‚” said Fielies.

Fielies said she knows people appreciate her talent and will continue to support her.

She said every week was a difficult week as you didn’t know who was going home‚ on top of learning a new song.

“But here I am because I worked very hard to be where I am. I celebrated every performance knowing how hard I worked. I did receive criticism sometimes but I didn’t let it get me down.”

Fielies will begin recording her album in January.

The teen thanked her family and fans for supporting her journey.

“In my community there’s a lot of gangsterism and there’s a lot going on. For them to just gather, for just one day, is amazing. It shows the support is still there. It shows they support youngsters. I would like to thank everyone who gathered to watch the show.”

Flakka Dangers


Flakka

PANIC has risen in South Africa with the synthetic drug Flakka, also known as the ‘zombie drug’, having hit the shores of Durban.

Various videos of people allegedly under the influence of the drug have surfaced on social media with people doing bizarre and completely absurd things.

People who take the drug are often left unable to talk and have no idea what is going on around them until the drug wears off. When people take the drug, they become a clear danger to themselves and others.

The drug is said to cause hallucinations, spikes in body temperature, an increased sex-drive, panic and hysteria to its users.

The drug can make users have feelings of super strength coupled with a pure feeling of rage.

So why would anyone want to use a drug of this calibre?

Research has shown that flakka affords users the same high as cocaine at an extremely low prize.

One of the earliest stories of Flakka in Durban was that of a man who bit off a chunk of someone’s arm while high.

Despite it being a cheap alternative, flakka has a worse effect on the neurological system as it stays in the brain longer than cocaine.
