Aka’s cousin auditions for Idols season 18

Season 18 of South African Idols kicked of yesterday and one of the contestants on the show was Aka’s cousin, Kaylene Hendricks. She was accompanied by Aka’s mother Lynn Forbes to her audition.




Kaylene said in her interview that she wants to make it on her own and not use her cousin AKA to get into the music industry. Kaylene ended up getting a golden ticket and she will be going to theathre week.

However the fans were not so sure about her performance. They felt that she just got her golden ticket because she is Aka’s cousin. Just like the judges did with Zozibini’s sister who was there last season. But others loved her audition and said it was the best so far.
