Cape Town - Actresses Thembsie Matu and Nomsa Buthelezi are on a mission to get rid of funky smells on Mzansi streets.

The two bubbly personalities will be co-hosting a show called Fragrance Your Life on

Thembsie reveals that the show will help people who can’t get rid of smells, from funky socks to stinky rooms.

"The show is for ordinary South Africans with odour issues. If there's a room in a house that has a funny smell or a smell of a boyfriend that left you, we can get rid of it," says Thembsie.

The ladies both have bright, bold personalities, but Thembsie is not worried about that at all.

"When there are two bold personalities one has to tone down," she says laughing. But the funny lady who portrays Petronella on The Queen is reluctant to reveal who's bolder than the other on the show. "To see who will succumb to which state just watch the show," she says.

Even though it took her a while to get the recognition she is currently receiving, Thembsie says she's always grateful for the opportunities she's afforded.

"They head hunted me, I didn't audition but I hear others did," she confesses.

She says she knew that there were auditions when Nomsaposted on her social media about the show and someone commented that it's the show they were auditioning for. "That is how I found out that there were auditions otherwise I was clueless," she laughs.

You can catch Fragrance Your Life on every Thursday night at 9:25 PM
