Remember how Sizwe Dhlomo and Fixx got to be famous?
Are the words ”VJ Search” starting to ring-a-bell?
Well…you’ll be glad to know that MTV Base is at again. They want YOU to be the next VJ.
That’s if YOU are between the ages of 18-25 and don’t mind being the key face of the music network, host TV shows on MTV Base as well as interview big shots in the music industry. Over and above MC-ing entertainment events, walking the red carpet and travelling all over the world.
Do I have your full attention now? Ya betcha!!!
Now YOU need to start working on impressing judges Bonang Matheba, Azania, HHP, Tim Horwood because they will be in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg…searching for YOU.
You have until the 14th of July to prepare because that’s when the auditions will kickstart in both Cape Town and Durban…and for you Jo’burg folk…be ready on the 21st of July.
Now you are probably wondering how I know all of this. Well, the 26th of June was the launch of the MTV Base VJ search.
Couldn’t have been more pleased with the venue: Envy in Sandton. Very intimate, classy and beautiful. Just what MTV Base is all about…I think.
We were treated to good food, drinks and music. That reminds me, my legs are still recovering from all the dancing. Boy did I have fun, partying it up with industry folks, Jozi socialites & of course Mzansi celebs.
Peep the pics to get some sort of idea of the event.
And this is the venue: Envy in Sandton. Beautiful place…I mentioned it that right?
YFM DJ….Warras. It was House Music all the way with this guy. We enjoyed it though.
Banky W: Nigeria’s Banky was there…with his swag, shades and all, indoors…
She won the VJ Search ages ago and she’s also a 5FM DJ. Her name is Fixx.
Edna Rose, looking plain and simple. I’ll leave it at that!
Black does wonders hey? Look how slim Lerato Sengadi looks. So pretty too.
JR, I thought JR borrowed Speedy’s towel for the evening…till I noticed that it was actually a snood, or is it really?
Social Media Diva, Mika Stefano was also there. And no, he wasn’t promoting his “Twitter Dance” song silly
Now what’s party without THE Queen of Gossip herself, Kuli Roberts? She’s here with the gorgeous Azania Mosaka.
Teargas with Azania in the middle. Look at K.O…was it the camera or is it just me…nevermind
L-Tido, Eda Rose and BankyW. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen L-Tido without a snapback.
Meet the judges of the MTV Base VJ Search…well, with Bonang missing of course.
Sizwe Dhlomo, Tim Horwood, Azania Mosaka, Alexi Okosi, HHP
