MTV Base VJ Search Is Back
The MTV Base Search is back yet again and this year they’ve teamed up with Citroën and will be giving away a DS3 Cabrio worth R 315,000 to one lucky youngster. The winner also receives a one-year contract with MTV Base, worth over R 500,000.
The new VJ will become one of the key “faces” of the music network, hosting programmes on MTV Base as well as interviewing stars, MC-ing entertainment events, walking the red carpet at showbiz functions, and travelling all over the continent representing MTV Base.
Celebrity judges who will be analyzing the contestants on their potential to be an MTV VJ will include Bonang Matheba, Sizwe Dhlomo and Joey Rasdien .
To help find the ultimate new MTV Base VJ, MTV Base and Citroën will host three separate open auditions in South Africa during July, including:
- 13 July - Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Durban
- 20 July - Tyger Valley Shopping Centre, Cape Town
- 27 July - The Venue, Melrose Arch.
Previous MTV Base VJ Search winners were Sizwe in 2005, Fixx (now on 5FM) in 2006, Nomuzi Mabena in 2012, and Ehiz Okeguale earlier this year.
The show’s launch was held in Melrose Arch last week, and here are some of the faces that were spotted at the event:
