M-Net’s The Voice SA, delivers Anele Mdoda as the new Host in its 3rd Season.
One of South Africa’s best-known media personalities has landed her dream job. The third season of M-Net’s The Voice South Africa, will be hosted by the effervescent, always-colourful radio and television star, Anele Mdoda.
Anele, a self-proclaimed super fan of the popular television franchise, took on this coveted role when the show’s Blind Auditions kicked off at the end of 2018, when production recorded the first few rounds of this competition. The Blind Auditions, Battles and Knockout Rounds will unfold at Urban Brew Studios in Randburg, where more great surprises await the phenomenal talent.
Anele confesses she still can’t believe she is going to be the Host of such a massive M-Net production. She quips that since 1992, when her parents bought their first decoder, she has been dreaming of seeing herself on her favourite television channel. Best of all, talent shows, especially those that give South Africans a time to shine, are her thing, she beams!
“I love, love, love The Voice. There is a very special camaraderie among the coaches, host and talent. Everyone does their best to make everyone else look and feel good. It’s friendly, it’s warm, it’s me! I am truly blessed that M-Net is giving me this opportunity and I am excited to be there, when red chairs turn to change people’s lives.” she said before production started with the recordings.
During the Blind Auditions, Anele was in the wings of the studio’s stage, to experience the talent’s big moment with their friends and family.
Anele presents the The 947 Breakfast Club, one of the biggest breakfast shows on radio in Gauteng, for which she has scooped several awards, including Best Radio Presenter in the Best of Joburg 2018 annual survey. Her amazing list of accolades also includes a Style Awards and a SAFTA.
She started her career as a radio DJ at Tukkies’ Campus Radio Station in 2004, where she studied Politics and International Relations. Thereafter she became a sensation on regional and national radio stations and then spread her wings to television. She had stints on several reality shows, including Mzansi Magic’s Clash of The Choirs, SA’s Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing.
Catch Anele on M-Net, Channel 101, when the 3rd season of The Voice South Africa will air on Sundays, starting 3 February 2019.
