As MTV Base bids Nomuzi “Moozlie” Mabena farewell, they will be embarking on the search for a brand new VJ to represent the channel.
The new VJ will host shows on MTV Base and MTV and they will also have the exciting job of interviewing stars, MC-ing events, attending international awards shows (such as the VMAs, EMAs and MAMAs), walking the red carpet, and travelling the continent – all while being an ambassador for MTV Base.
MTV proudly boasts that “since launching 11 years ago on 22 February 2005, MTV Base has nurtured a wealth of awesome talent.”
Just look at the first ever African VJ on MTV Base – Sizwe Dhlomo – who currently holds down two radio shows, “Bloc Party” on 947, and 702’s “Night Talk with Gugs and Sizwe”.
MTV Base has also provided launch-pads for Fikile “Fix” Moeti of 5FM, Tanzanian Vanessa “Vee Money” Mdee (a successful radio & TV host, songwriter and recording artist) and – most recently – Sandile Ntshingila, host of MTV Base Roundtable: Hottest Newcomers 2016 and the MTV Base Official SA Top Ten.
Nomuzi earned her place on the channel after winning the MTV Base VJ Search in 2012, an initiative designed to find and nurture raw entertainment talent. The former communications science student went on to host numerous shows on MTV Base, representing the channel at a wide range of entertainment events from the VMAs, to the MAMA and MTV Base Golden Beats, among many others.
Like Vanessa Mdee, Nomuzi is currently killing it as Cash Time Life’s first lady, Moozlie, aka Skhanda Queen.
If you think you have what it takes to be the new face of MTV Base keep an eye out as applications for the MTV Base VJ Search 2016 will open next month in April 2016.
