Somizi & Thando Thabethe to host SAMA’s 22

The word is finally out on who will be hosting the 2016 South African Music Awards (SAMAs) and it is none other than the flamboyant TV star Somizi Mhlongo and radio personality Thando Thabethe. The two took to their Insta pages early this morning, just two days before the biggest music award ceremony in SA to share the good news.
Somizi posted this video:
