The winner Tamasha Gambushe, will share the responsibility of hosting the Black Carpet affair alongside Selimathunzi’s own Zizo Beda, Sinazo Yolwa and Amanda du-Pont on the RGB Live Broadcast.
It goes down on March 1, at Inkosi Albert Luthuli Convention Center.
The voluptuous Tarmasha from Ulundi, a stone-throw away from Durban CBD came out tops to outnumber close to over 4000 other hopefuls and she made no reservations in winning.
“The audition process has been a great experience for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was able to meet new people and I have learnt much. It is a great opportunity for me that I’m immensely grateful and honoured to be a part of, “says the 24 year-old songstress.
As part of the experience Tamarsha, will be flown to Joburg, booked in a 4-star hotel, and taken through a 5-day course in presenting and exposure at the SABC in preparation for her big day. No cold feet, gal.
Dichaba Phalatse, SABC1’s Portfolio Marketing Manager: Entertainment commented: “SABC1 has a good track record in unearthing South African youth TV talent and we have proudly done so once again with the Black Carpet Presenter Search.,”
“Tamarsha won out of on-line entries exceeding 4000, and auditions held for over 100 shortlisted candidates. The process was not easy and between SABC1, Metro FM and Ukhozi FM, we are confident South Africa will fall in love with Tamarsha the way we have,” concluded Phalatse.
The awards will be televised on SABC 1 from 8pm.
