'So Macho' singer Sinitta - who assists her ex-boyfriend and pal Simon Cowell on 'The X Factor' - has promised to help the show reject launch a music career
Sinitta has vowed to help Gamu Nhengu's singing career.
The 'So Macho' star - who assists her ex-boyfriend Simon Cowell on 'The X Factor' - has promised to help the Zimbabwe-born singer get a recording contract, following her boot from the reality show.
She said: "I think music labels would love her. She is so popular. I would absolutely like to help her and be there for her, just to let her know about the opportunities."
Gamu missed out on a place in the live finals after her mentor Cheryl Cole controversially chose Katie Waissel and Cher Lloyd to go through - despite fluffing their auditions. She then put Treyc Cohen through as her wild card to join Rebecca Ferguson in her group.
However, Sinitta admits she was disappointed by the judge's choice, but is looking forward to seeing what Cheryl does with the girls.
She explained to The Sun newspaper: "I was very disappointed because Gamu was my favourite. She is a great singer and will have a great career.
"It will be interesting to see how Cheryl can prove everyone wrong by turning her girls into superstars. If that starts happening, we will be thinking, 'Well done you'. She might have a master plan because she put through two girls who are very risky.
"Cher is young and I wonder how limited she might be as a performer. Katie has a great image but is so emotional. Cheryl is taking a massive risk. But you only m take a risk when you think you have spotted something amazing."
Gamu's future is uncertain, as the 18 year old and her family are currently fighting against being deported back to their home country, after her mother's visa application was rejected.
