The 23rd annual South African Music Awards are just 10 days away and as the final preparations are being put into place, the Recording Industry of South Africa can finally confirm that popular media personality Somizi and comedienne Tumi Morake will serve as the hosts for this year’s musical extravaganza.

Somizi returns to the SAMA stage this year after doing an incredible job last year when he co-hosted the awards alongside Thando Thabethe. He is expected to bring a lot of laughs, hilarity and fabulousness to the show which is why adding Tumi Morake to the mix is the perfect decision. Tumi is a pioneer in the local comedy scene and is taking her career to the next level. Tumi is also incredibly comfortable in front of the camera having presented some of Mzansi’s best TV shows such as Our Perfect Wedding and Red Cake.

Comments 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 live show will be broadcast on SABC1 at 8pm on the 27th of May 2017.
