UFC Middleweight Champion Dricus du Plessis was unmasked as Wildebeest on the last episode of Masked Singer South Africa, which aired on S3 (formerly known as SABC 3) on Saturday 4 May.


Case cracked! World UFC Middleweight champion Dricus du Plessis, was the latest celebrity to be unmasked on Masked Singer South Africa, on the latest episode of the series, which aired on Saturday 4 May.


Since Wildebeest opened season two of the fun-filled singing contest five weeks ago with a spectacular performance of Let Me Entertain You by Robbie Williams, the show’s supersleuths had no clue who the celebrity behind the mask could be. The detectives on the series are J’Something, Somizi Mhlongo, Sithelo Shozi and Skhumba Hlophe –

So, the jaws dropped when it was revealed that Wildebeest’s beautiful husky voice belonged to national hero Dricus.

After surviving the grueling first round of unmaskings, six costumed characters returned to The Masked Singer South Africa this week for the second round of trying to keep their anonymity intact.


The detectives found Wildebeest’s video clue package leading into his Round two performance of Counting Stars by One Republic just as confusing as the hints he dropped previously. This time, Wildebeest confessed that he had something in common with the CEO of SpaceX and that his family roots are in the land of the croissants.

The detectives remembered that Wildebeest had mentioned a “nose job” before. So, J’Something and Somizi locked in Kwagga Smith. Sithelo stuck to Faf de Klerk, and Skhumba settled on Pierre Spies. So, it was a huge surprise when Dricus came out of the mask.

Dricus, who hails from Welkom, Free-State, described his The Masked Singer South Africa experience as “so much fun.”

“I love music. I sing a lot in the shower, and I sing a lot in the car, so I thought, ‘let me get out of my comfort zone and take this car singing to the world’. And I loved being Wildebeest. It was a spot-on outfit for me,” he said.

This comes after former Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco was unmasked as Star.
