Selimathunzi Sea­son 30 Tues­days SABC1 (*191) 19:30

Life­style show Selimathunzi (1996cur­rent) is pop­ping the bub­bly on Tues­day 25 July as sea­son 30 kicks off. But don’t think that it’s glitzand- glam red- car­pet events all the time. Pre­sen­ters Khanya Mkangisa (Aphiwe in Isidingo, see p23), Lunga Sha­bal­ala, Sphe Vazi and Tshenolo Se­abi also ded­i­cate time to help­ing fans pre­pare for their ma­tric dances and cel­e­brate their birth­days. “We are a small team but we get the work done,” laughs Khanya. “Selimathunzi has loads of va­ri­ety over its sea­sons, so we get to travel to ev­ery kind of event, from flashy to not-so-flashy. We ba­si­cally cover all types and that is what makes it an ex­cit­ing job,” says Khanya. And she’s lov­ing the flow too – “The show is un­scripted and im­pro­vised. We think on our feet, talk to the peo­ple on cam­era and just have fun. We shoot and en­joy mo­ments as they’re hap­pen­ing,” adds the pre­sen­ter.
