Somizi Mhlongo and comedian Tumi Morake have been announced as hosts of the 23rd instalment of the South African Music Awards - SAMA 23 taking place at the Sun City Superbowl.

Mhlongo is a much loved theatre and television veteran as well as a singer. He returns to the hosting duties that he so ably delivered on last year when he co-hosted with Thando Thabethe. Morake is the reigning queen of South African comedy. She is a respected television host and a pioneer in her field.

RiSA CEO Nhlanhla Sibisi says “Our team is hard at work putting together a ceremony befitting the stature of the SAMAs. We have every faith in Somizi and Tumi that they will add that extra zing to the proceedings and leave us entertained”.

The main SAMA 23 event on 27 May 2017 will be broadcast live on SABC1 at 8pm.
