Do you think you have what it takes to present live on television? Are you between 18 and 26 year-old and a resident of South Africa’s province of Kwazulu Natal? Do you have a perfect knowledge of South African music and its industry? Then, the SABC1 Black Carpet presenter competition is meant for you!
The winner is expected to co-host the Black Carpet with Lunga Shabalala and Zizo Beda.
The South African Broadcasting Corporation said SABC1 will embark, alongside Selimathunzi, on an innovative regional talent search campaign to unearth this presenter, the third since the draw-card was launched to accompany the Metro FM Music Awards (MMAs) event ceremony.
The Metro FM Awards, now in its 13th edition, is held to annually to celebrate and honour the best of South Africa music talents, and SABC1 is the event’s broadcast sponsor.
“SABC1 is constantly looking for innovative ways to engage its viewers, and with the Kwazulu Natal province hosting us for the 13th MMAs we thought it would be great to showcase the wealth of talent in this province,” Dichaba Phalatse, SABC1 portfolio marketing manager for entertainment, said in a statement.
“This search is the first of its kind and will translate into compelling reality entertainment within the Metro FM Music Award offering.”
Online entries will close on Monday 10 February 2014 and successful candidates qualifying for the next round of the Presenter Search will be notified via sms on Thursday 13 February.
