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 wise cracks  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.

According to 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.' 

The  main SAMA 23 event on 27 May 2017 will be broadcast live on SABC1 at 8pm.
