The pair exited the show in February after it was announced at the show it was taking a fresh approach to the judging panel later revealed to be Thembi Seete, JR Bogopa and Somizi.
Taking to Instagram when she was announced as a judge, Thembi said she couldn't believe she would be in one of Mzansi's most envied chairs.
“It feels like a dream. It's as if someone woke me up and said, 'don't worry, you had a wild imagination'.”
Unathi and Randall have moved on to other projects. Unathi joined Star 91.9 FM.
In a statement shared with TshisaLIVE, Unathi expressed how she was anticipating venturing into a new radio format as she joins the community radio station.
“I am looking forward to a fresh new format of radio that I have never before attempted. To be able to speak to my community, from my community, and for my community — priceless. Being able to speak to a multicultural community is also something I’m truly excited about because that’s the heart of radio — the heart of Joburg,” she said.
Randall was appointed as new CEO of Primedia Broadcasting.
Abrahams said: “I am pleased to return to a swiftly evolving broadcast landscape and I'm very excited to join the Primedia Group."
