JOHANNESBURG- Presenter Anele Mdoda will be hosting The Voice SA when the popular reality show returns for its 3rd season in February next year as she replaces Lungile Radu.

The announcement was confirmed by M-Net through a statement on Friday morning. She will step into her new role when Blind Auditions kick off later this month.

“Sho, I still can’t believe I’m going to be the host of such a massive M-Net production. Since 1992, when my parents bought our first decoder, I’ve been dreaming of seeing myself on my favourite television channel. Best of all, talent shows, especially those that give South Africans a time to shine, are my thing!.”

“I love, love, love The Voice. There is a very special camaraderie among the coaches, host and talent. Everyone does their best to make everyone else look and feel good. It’s friendly, it’s warm, it’s me! I am truly blessed that M-Net is giving me this opportunity and am excited to be there when red chairs turn to change people’s lives,” said Anele.

Lani Lombard, who is the head of publicity at M-Net said they chose Anele because she has an extraordinary gift to make anyone feel at ease. “She can chat up a storm, she’s a good listener and she makes people laugh – and shed a tear – without even trying. And she’s spunky and fun.  She does it one way, and that’s the Anele Mdoda way,” Lani Lombard said.
