By Lindelwa Masuku

The highly anticipated South African version of the popular singing competition guessing game, The Masked Singer, is set to hit screens in June. The show, which will premiere on S3 (formerly SABC3), promises to be a unique and exciting experience for fans of music and mystery.

The Masked Singer South Africa features 16 local celebrities who will perform well-known songs while wearing elaborate, bejeweled full-body costumes and masks that completely hide their identities. As the celebrities showcase their singing talents, a star-studded panel of detectives, including J Something, Somizi Mhlongo, Sithelo Shozi, and Skhumba Hlophe, will try to guess their true identities.
