It was the worst kept secret in history — or at least, “The Masked Singer” history. On Wednesday night’s finale of the FOX show, Kandi Burruss was revealed as the Night Angel and crowned the season three winner.

I finally can stop keeping secrets!!!!! I’m so thankful for this opportunity to be on @maskedsingerfox & I’m extremely excited to represent women & win the trophy! I dropped a new single #UsedToLoveMe today so I would love for you all to download it now & add to your playlist! Tag me on your post if you post the song so that I can see your post! ❤️😘 Thanks for the love!!!!
Now, from the second she opened her mouth, anyone with ears and a love for R&B knew that the Xscape singer was hiding under the elaborate angel mask. However, there’s someone who knew even before that moment.
We’re pretty sure that the contestants on “The Masked Singer” are supposed to keep their identities confidential, but that didn’t stop Burruss from telling her BFF, Tameka “Tiny” Harris. And, of course, if you tell Tiny, she’s most likely going to tell her daughter, Zonnique — they’re super close.
HH got the chance to chat with Zonnique about Kandi’s appearance on the hit show, and she was absolutely thrilled for the singer she calls “family”, and of course, a mentor, since Zonnqiue has been dropping her own hits, as well.
And her famous friends were thrilled, too, leaving tons of comments on her IG post.
