IN MEMES: Fans weep as Ofentse gets booted off Idols
Many of them probably knew it was coming but it did not stop Idols SA fans from going into a state of mourning on Sunday, when it was announced that favourite Ofentse Motale had been cut from the show.
The young muso, who shot to social media fame with his breathtaking audition last month, once again gave an underwhelming performance where he fluffed his lines on Sunday night's episode.
Although many were not surprised to see the star's luck run out, his legion of fans took to social media to weep over his exit.
Others were angry at the show's judges for not giving him another chance.
His die-hard fans begged for him to return to the show next year, this time with "storage space for lyrics".
