After being on an emotional rollercoaster for the past few days, the Idols SA runner-up has come out to let fans know that he’s alive and well.

Mthokozisi Ndaba has hogged headlines since Sunday night, after he refused to do any media interviews and had to “receive assistance” to help deal with the emotions of losing out on the Idols title.

Taking to his Instagram account, Mthokozisi shared a video of himself watching the music video for his song, Masithandane.

Within minutes after the video was shared, it received more than 72 000 views. Mthokozisi asked fans to watch the video, and also told them that he was in a better space.

“Hello there. How are you? I’m well. Breathing, alive and grateful,” he said.

Earlier this week, a press statement reportedly from Mthokozisi started doing the rounds on social media. In the statement, Mthokozisi issued an apology and explained that he felt like he had disappointed those close to him.

“I had planned to dedicate the win to my late parents and my late son, and at that moment I felt like I had let them down. I guess I let being human get the better of me,” read part of the statement.

Mthokozisi’s management have reportedly said that the entire situation was blown out of proportion, and that it was only human for him to take time away to regroup.

I’m not a sore loser, says Idols SA runner-up Mthokozisi
