E! Entertainment Television (DStv channel 124), NBCUniversal International Network’s pop culture channel, announced Katleho Sinivasan as the winner of the reality competition series The Search: E! Host South Africa and the new E! South Africa host. The winner was revealed in the last episode of the six-part series and live at an exclusive event in Johannesburg on March 8, whose attendees included South Africa’s biggest names in the entertainment industry.
When E! Entertainment Television first launched a few years ago on DSTV, I was over the moon with excitement! Being an avid pop culture curator, this is my go to channel for all things celebrity, so when E! announced that they will be launching their first ever locally produced series, called E! News Special, this was music to my ears!
The 12-part original series will profile some of Africa’s most inspiring and influential pop culture personalities including singers, actors, models, socialites and sport stars. The series will premiere on E! (DStv Channel 124) in South Africa on Thursday, 10th September at 8 pm.
It was recently announced that media personality and businesswoman, Bonang Matheba, was the only South African female to make the prestigious Forbes Magazine‘s 13 most influential artists in Africa list. The other two South Africans to make the list were Trevor Noah and DJ Sbu (Sibusiso Leope).
This took me back to a few months ago, when Bonang appeared as our celebrity guest on Spirit Sundae (SABC1).
