Remember Selwyn; the RnB cutie who won all of our hearts back in 2001… well, this is what he is up to these days!
Selwyn Pretorius was born in Durban, South Africa and his family moved to Perth when he was just 16 years old in 1999…
Fast forward just two years later and Selwyn auditioned for the second season of Popstars.
Sadly he didn’t make it through to the final group line-up, but he was later re-discovered while working at a shopping centre as a trolley boy by Producer Audius Mtawarira.
He overheard him singing and offered to produce him.
Selwyn had a few hits back in 2002, like these two-
Sadly after a few years, Selwyn disappeared and it turns out he has actually been pretty busy and is planning on making a return to music!
Selwyn, now 33, got married to a salsa dancer and they had a son together, who is believed to be 9-years-old.
Unfortunately, things didn’t work out for the couple and they decided to go their separate ways... but Selwyn sees his son every 2 weeks.
In between his music, Selwyn also works as a forklift driver in a warehouse and he also does a bit of phone work for a charity.
We can’t wait for his big return back into music! We will be ready!
