IT has been a great few months for Idols SA season 18 winner Thapelo Molomo.
Since winning the singing competition in November, he’s been getting gigs and being celebrated in many places, including his workplace – the South African Police Service (SAPS).
A big celebration was held for him on Tuesday, 14 February, at the Potchefstroom SAPS. The North West province was officially recognising and celebrating the singer for winning, and he was also handed an award and certificate by the force. Thapelo works as a counsellor for the SAPS.

Speaking to Daily Sun, he said he felt appreciated and loved by the SAPS.
“It feels great to be celebrated by the North West office. These celebrations encourage me to say the level of impact within the SAPS was seen and recognised, and they appreciate it,” he said.

Although Thapelo won last year, he said the celebration was only held this month because he had been busy.
“They wanted to organise it within the cluster earlier but realised that there was a lot going on in terms of gigs during the festive season. They didn’t want to distract me but wanted me to proceed with my plans,” he said.
