Anecnote, the winners of SA’s Got Talent 2017, returned home to a hero’s welcome yesterday at the Cape Town International Airport.
Banners, whistles and frilly trimmings awaited them as excited family and friends welcomed the singers home.
Unfortunately one of the members of the a cappella group, final-year medical student Morne Kahts, couldn’t be part of the celebration.
Morne was forced to return home early yesterday morning for his exams.
The quintet thanked SA for voting for them, and helping scoop the grand prize of R500 000.
Leah Adams, 25, is a music teacher from Heathfield and said they appreciate the support.
“It was an amazing experience, all the hard work and hours put into this was worth it. We will use this money to record a CD and we’re also looking to host an a cappella festival, so this money will fund that,” she says.
Leah’s mom, Margaret Clarence, praised the group for their dedication and hard work and bringing the coveted trophy home.
“They really worked hard and deserve this title. They’ve earned it,” she said.
The group, who met at the University of Cape Town, have been together for four years and say they have never entered a competition of such magnitude.
They won SA’s Got Talent at the Soweto Theatre on Sunday after performing a medley of SA hits.
