Sbusiso Kumalo, the Head of Marketing at Capitec adds that “To be a presenter is more than just how you carry yourself on TV. It’s everything else – how you manage your finances, how you grow your social media following, how you carry your brand on and off the screen. Being a presenter asks a lot more of the people who are coming to enter this competition.”


Meanwhile, Top Billing executive producer and one of the most respected women in television, Patience Stevens reveals that “As a judge, what I am looking for in a top TV presenter is someone with charm, charisma and the ability to command someone’s attention so that when they walk into the room, they have an immediate presence and everybody knows that this is a powerful personality.

Lastly, the Big Dawg himself DJ Fresh says “If TV is what you love then this is the perfect place to start. It might be a little bit of a deep end for some but that’s the best time to learn how to swim. Join us at this year’s auditions. The stage is yours.”
