The hosts for annual South African Music Award show were announced on Wednesday to much expected excitement. The SAMA 23 award ceremony will be co-hosted by the ever-so-bubbly award-winning comedian Tumi Morake and her co-pilot, the larger than life Somizi Mhlongo.
Somizi makes his returns to the hosting duties after his stellar work last year when he co-hosted with radio jock and actress Thando Thabethe. Morake is no stranger in the presenting realm and will be expected to her wit and sass to dilute Som G’s abrasive candor. She is a respected television host and a pioneer in her field.
RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi hyped up the event: ‘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.’
The main SAMA 23 event on 27 May 2017 will be broadcast live on SABC1 at 8pm.
