June 1, 2022, Johannesburg, South Africa (Press Release) -- This month Springbok Casino salutes talented South Africans that have become known through viral videos in social media and from performances on talent shows like South Africa's Got Talent, X Factor, Idols South Africa and The Voice South Africa.
Derek Plaaitjies, from the small town of Saron in the Western Cape, made it to the finals of South Africa's Got Talent and even got a Golden Buzzer for one of his performances.
The first South African performer to get the Golden buzzer was 12-year-old Henno William.
"South Africa's Got Talent ran from 2009 to 2017. The winners were mostly singers, although dancers from the Krytonite Dance Academy won in 2016 and a capella group AnecNote were the 2017 winners.
South Africa’s pride and joy simply sailed to the AGT finals on their stunning performances of youthful exuberance, fantastic harmonising, wonderful costumes and dance moves, proudly showing off their African culture in multiple indigenous languages as well as English.
In 2014, The X Factor South Africa was won by a three-member band called Four.
The Voice South Africa started in January 2016 and proved to be a hit on M-Net. Winners so far have been Richard Stirton (2016), Craig Lucas (2017) and Tasché Burger (2019).
If there was a prize for ‘Song Causing the Most Viral Videos on Social Media’, the winner would, hands down, be Jerusalema, by South African DJ and record producer Master KG featuring South African vocalist Nomcebo. The Jerusalema Dance Challenge exploded all over the world and the song's video has been viewed nearly 500 million times so far.
