Speaking to TMG Entertainment‚ Storm revealed that he’s still in shock after receiving the news last week. However‚ he is very much excited and looking forward to representing South Africa at the worldwide talent search.

“I got the news last week and since then everything has been happening so fast‚ but it’s very exciting. I can’t wait to show the rest of the world what SA has to offer.”
