Idols judge Somizi Mhlongo and entertainment reporter Nadia Neophytou will be the red carpet interviewers for the 10th South African Film and Television Awards (Saftas) taking place on 20 March.

"We are delighted to be working with Somizi Mhlongo and Nadia Neophytou, both of whom are home-grown talents that have built stellar, longstanding careers," says Zama Mkosi, CEO of the National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) organising the Saftas.

"I'm looking forward to bring something different, something rattata, something Somizi to the 2016 Saftas as red carpet presenter," says Somizi.

"I'm very excited to be heading home to South Africa to co-host the Saftas red carpet," says Nadia Neophytou who works in New York.

"I'm looking forward to interviewing the filmmakers, producers, actors and TV stars who've been nominated. I'm looking forward to seeing who takes home the Golden Horn".

The 2016 Saftas will be broadcast on SABC2 and M-Net's Mzansi Magic (DStv 161) channels.
