What happened to SA Got Talent contestant James Bhemgee?

The SA Got Talent contestant James Bhemgee has gone away. Some social media users claimed he passed away after having a sudden heart attack.

People will always remember the music of the late singer Bhemgee. When the former street sweeper was singing one day while sweeping the streets, Angelique Fuhr just happened to see him on the streets.

When he was 45 years old, he first attracted the public’s notice and began his singing training. The mother invited Bhemgee to perform at her house by calling her concert pianist daughter.

Fuhr paid for his initial singing lessons because she believed in his talent, but his teacher gave up after three months because she believed he needed a coach better suited to his skills. Finally, Fuhr convinced Young and Rubicam, a marketing company, to sponsor his ongoing research.

He studied voice with American baritone Wayne Long at the Nico Malan theater (now the Cape Town Artscape Theatre Centre), which she pointed him toward. After 2.5 years of training, Bhemgee left the theater to pursue a performance diploma at the University of Cape Town. He fled the nation, nonetheless, before completing his academic coursework.

He made an appearance on Breakfast News (now known as BBC Breakfast) in the UK in 1994. Many people recognized his talent, which gave him the chance to study in Germany for four years.

He took part in SA Got Talent in 2010 and even won the competition, which increased his notoriety. Even R250 000 in prize money was given to him.
