Last year’s top three finalists Nomzamo Mbatha, Naledi Radebe & Nomuzi Mabena
This is the last chance to enter this year’s competition which has already seen thousands of young hopefuls entering in Durban and Cape Town over the past weeks. Many more are expected to attend the auditions at The Venue, Melrose Arch, Johannesburg, in the hope of becoming the brightest new face of MTV Base. Just a few minutes in front of the MTV Base producers could be all it takes to set you on a path to a ZAR 500,000 dream gig in entertainment: a fantastic job presenting a show on music and youth channel MTV Base. The lucky winner will also drive away in a fabulous DS3 Cabrio, courtesy of Citroën, worth a cool ZAR 315,000.
MTV Base VJ and Spanking New host Nomuzi Mabena (@NoMoozlie), will also be joining in the fun at the Johannesburg auditions. Initial callbacks will be held at venue on Sunday 28 July in front of judges Sizwe Dhlomo (@SizweDhlomo), Joey Rasdien (@joeyrasdien) and Bonang Matheba (@Bonang_M). Four Johannesburg qualifiers will be announced on Monday 29 July.
