An Afrikaans first for

CityPress - - T# - SIYABONGA SIT­HOLE siyabonga.sit­hole@city­ eimer means busi­ness! In a bid to lure Afrikaans view­ers, the free-to-air chan­nel has an­nounced its first Afrikaans pro­gramme, Musiek Musiek, which pre­mieres next week.

Pro­duced by Me­dia World, and pre­sented by Ea­gan Wil­liamson and Tina Meis­senheimer, the show seeks to “ex­plore” the Afrikaans mu­sic scene through in­ter­views, gos­sip and the lat­est news from the big­gest Afrikaans artists.

The show fea­tures a be­hindthe-scenes seg­ment look­ing at the art of mak­ing mu­sic videos, and a golden oldies seg­ment that fea­tures clas­sic Afrikaans mu­sic videos.

The show has been dubbed the next big thing by the free-to-air chan­nel, and prom­ises to be “an ex­cit­ing and in­sight­ful ride through the tal­ent-filled and pas­sion­ate Afrikaans mu­sic scene”.

Meis­senheimer makes her de­but as a pre­sen­ter. She will in­ter­act with stu­dio guests and share their mu­sic knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence.

Wil­liamson will dish out the dirt on celebri­ties in a bid to shed light on what’s hot in the Afrikaans mu­sic scene. This also in­cludes the lat­est news, re­leases and live events fea­tur­ing the cream of the crop of Afrikaans mu­sic.
