Twitter users have raised their concerns about the OPW presenter search top six – is there reason for concern though?
Award-winning presenter, Thembisa Mdoda announced that she was leaving Mzansi Magic’s Our Perfect Wedding almost three months ago.
Following this Mzansi Magic launched the OPW presenter search, which is currently underway for her replacement.
So far, it is guaranteed that the next OPW host will be from the Eastern Cape as all the finalists are from the province. The top six are; Asanda Mbali, Kayise Ngqula, Mbasa Fefe, Natasha Mazomba, Noni Mbete and the curvaceous Nolusindiso Macanda.
Even though all hopefuls have shown amazing talent, Twitter users couldn’t help but smell a rat. They believe the search is for another Thembisa more than it is for a new unique talent.
Thembisa left the show after her contract was not renewed in August. Since then, Nomsa Buthelezi has been holding the fort while the search for the new host continues.
Here are some tweets about the top six.
Nepotism is everywhere kodwa eMzansi????. Judges were Xhosas now the finalists are all Xhosas. They should have diversified the search; nonetheless they're all talented. #OPWPresenterSearch— Yanela Wire (@Yanelawire) November 9, 2017
