The roundtable discussion will have Loyiso Gola, Metro FM afternoon drive DJ T’bo Touch, Hype magazine Editor Fred Kayembe, 5FM DJ Ms Cosmo and Gagasi FM’s Vukile Zondi, who join Hottest MC veterans recording artist and entrepreneur Slikour, and MTV Base’s very own Music Programmer, Melanie Triegaardt.

The panellists will judge artists on a range of criteria including sales, style, impact, lyrics, buzz and other intangible factors.

Metro FM DJ T’bo Touch said: “I am excited about being in this panel but most significantly being in one room as such creative geniuses - an abundance of creative people with a lot of experience in the music industry. This will create an impact on music sales, on how charts are being formulated,” said “It will be very interesting to see how the panel change affects the debate, and the impact it will have on the final list,” added Ms Cosmo.

“Everything is about work, visibility; we are looking at numbers, who had the most influence,” said Slikour.

“I tweet about rap at least once a day. I kind of know what the game is about even though it’s not the gospel” said Loyiso Gola.

“A lot of things inform the kind of people we have on the panel. Some of those things are credibility, influence and power,” commented facilitator Sizwe Dhlomo.

“SA’s Hottest MCs 2015” premieres on MTV Base on Thursday 26 & Friday 27 November at 16:30 CAT.  A full 1 hour special will air on Saturday 28 November at 11:00 CAT as part of the “Hottest MCs Takeover Weekend” on MTV Base.
