Randall Abrahams

Idols SA pulled the plug on its starstudded judging panel in a bid to pave the way to a new panel. We can all agree that Idols SA won’t be the same without Randall Abrahams. No doubt he is that celebrated judge we all love to hate.

On Idols SA, passion, dedication, and strong-willed discipline was his signature. However, in the mix of things, Mzansi has been wondering what’s next for Randall after being axed from Idols SA. From the star-studded cast, it seems as if his fellow cast members, the likes of Unathi Nkayi and Somizi Mhlongo, has been winning big since their exit, but little has been heard about Abrahams.

It seems as if Randall Abrahams is a jack of all trades and master of all. Apart from being part of the Idols SA judge, Randall is a CEO in real-life. He owns one of the biggest PR consulting companies in South Africa. The Total Exposure PR Firm manages several cooperate images for prominent South African companies like South Africa Got Talent.

He’s thrust into the limelight came in the backdrop of the YFM gig. Despite joining on apprenticeship, he went on to become the station’s manager. However, he was later appointed National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) chairperson. The bubbly media personality was in charge of content creation during his term.

He joined the judging panellist of Idols SA from 2003 up to 2021. In the backdrop of his gig on Idols SA, he was offered an opportunity to be part of the World Idols judging panellist.

However, he has been winning big since then. SABC offered him the position of General Manager of its stations. Randall Abrahams tenure saw the dominance of Metro FM, 5FM and Good Hope FM 2003-2006. Since then, he has been living the dream.

The celebrated persona was born on 26 July 1969 in Cape Town. Well, his ages come as a shocker, given his youthful looks. Who knew he was 52? He looks younger than his actual age. As if that’s not enough. Wonders never cease to amaze. In South Africa, he is one of the wealthiest entertainers in Mzansi. As of 2021, he has an estimated net worth of R170 million.
