Publicist and artist manager Martin Myers says that while Paxton Fielies has a bright career ahead of her, she and her family have a lot to consider.
Cape Town-born Fielies was crowned the season 13 winner of Idols South Africa on Sunday.
Myers says the 17-year-old will have to make difficult decisions about her schooling career, management, and musical future.
