The elegant Nomzamo Mbatha and bubbly Jessica Nkosi are set to join the stylish Nandi Madida in the new and improved BET A-List on BET from Thursday 25 May at 19:00 CAT.
The hot trio will combine their star power with Jesse Suntele who moves into a studio role from an insert presenter. The elite foursome will alternate in the anchor seat when the weekly lifestyle and entertainment magazine show moves to its new 19:00 CAT time slot on BET (DStv channel 129).
Ayanda Nhlapo and Leroy Marc will continue their roles of fashion and style correspondents, creating an unmissable television experience, while model and TV host K. Naomi continues to bring her fresh approach as insert presenter.
And BET A-List has further grown its pan-African reach by adding two correspondents - Nigerian TV host & producer Illrymz and Zimbabwean TV personality Miss Vimbai, who will be reporting on all the action and entertainment from on-the-ground in Nigeria.
Monde Twala, Vice President, BET, Youth & Music for Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, says: “We are delighted that such big name talent as Nomzamo and Jessica will be bringing their star power to BET A-List. This home-grown show has been hugely successful since its debut last year. We will continue to keep audiences up-to-date on the latest trends on the African continent and abroad. Nomzamo and Jessica are trend-setters. So who better to join the A-List team?”
Nomzamo's rise to fame started after she made it to the finals in the MTV Base VJ Search in 2012. In 2015, she starred in a romantic comedy film, Tell Me Sweet Something, and received an Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading role nomination at the 12th Africa Movie Academy Awards. She was named as one of the sexiest South Africans in a media poll and won the Drum Rising Star Award. No stranger to the Viacom family, she co-hosted the 2016 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) alongside Bonang Matheba and Yemi Alade showcasing Africa’s finest talent.
Jessica is well known for portraying the character of “Qondi” on the telenovela turned soap opera, Isibaya. She also portrayed the character of “Eve” on aYeYe and was the host of Our Perfect Wedding.
