Early life

Davids comes from Atlantis in the Western Cape. She is one of 10 children, and her father is a pastor.


Sasha-Lee Davids was originally declared the sole winner after singing the winner’s song “True Believer”. But apparently, there had been a mix-up with late votes arriving after the cutoff time on the night of the finale. The SMS messages had been sent before the cutoff time but were only received after the deadline. M-Net made the public aware of the matter within a day and assured everyone that a recount of the votes would be done as soon as possible.

The recount showed that Jason Hartman, the then runner-up was actually the winner, with 1.3 million votes, or 54% of the total. Sasha-Lee had come second, with 1.1 million votes, or 46%. M-Net decided however that “200,000 votes are not significant enough, and the results so close, the only fair thing to do under the circumstances is to declare a tie”.
