X Factor’s Gamu Nhengu: Fans React on Twitter and Facebook

Last night’s “X Factor” episode appears to have created a bit of a stir among fans of Zimbabwean singer Gamu Nhengu, after Cheryl Cole very surprisingly sent her home rather than taking her through to the live shows. Now her fans have been taking to Twitter and Facebook, to post their angry reactions.

As recently reported by, 18-year old Nhengu was in fact an early favorite to win the show, but Cheryl shocked viewers of last night’s episode when she told Gamu that she couldn’t take her through. Shortly after, fans started taking to social networking to vent their anger at Cole.

Facebook pages that criticized Cheryl’s decision attracted over 17,000 followers, while the phrase “Hate Cheryl Cole” was trending within hours of the show airing. One viewer John Roads wrote: “talentless Cheryl, what a scandal!!!” Another wrote: “Why on earth is Cheryl a judge anyways.”

Some fans even went as far as dismissing the decision Cheryl made as racist. Others simply comforted Gamu by saying that she would go on to have a successful career anyway. “Gamu has surely got to come back, she is brilliant,” one person said, adding that they would definitely buy her album.

    if Cheryl Cole can't spot that Gamu could win this year's X Factor then she needs to give up her day job and work for Border Control full time
