SAMA 23 hosts named
The star-studded SAMA 23 awards show promises to be a memorable spectacle steered by the larger than life Somizi Mhlongo and award-winning comedian Tumi Morake as hosts.
The coming together of these two local powerhouses will sure yield star wattage that will set the Sun City Superbowl alight with fun, laughter and wisecracks as the music industry honours its finest talent.
Mhlongo is a much loved theatre and television veteran as well as a singer. He returns to the hosting duties that he so ably delivered on last year when he co-hosted with Thando Thabethe. Morake is the reigning queen of South African comedy. She is a respected television host and a pioneer in her field.
Comments RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi: ‘Our team is hard at work putting together a ceremony befitting the stature of the SAMA awards. We have every faith in Somizi and Tumi that they will add that extra zing to the proceedings and leave us entertained.’
