Lawrence Maleka, who is known for his charm and strong acting talents, will be adding another important role to his resume as the host of the forthcoming season of Big Brother Mzansi season 3. Big Brother Mzansi will premiere live on DStv Channel 161 Mzansi Magic on Sunday, January 23, 2022.
Many people know him for his role as Zolani in the hit 1Magic telenovela The River, but he’s also a well-known TV host and presenter who has previously hosted Africa Magic Entertainment’s StarGist, Mzansi Magic’s Clash of the Choirs, and co-hosted the 2021 South African Music Awards, among other things.
“I’m excited to be part of this installment of Big Brother Mzansi. The franchise has become a massive phenomenon in African as well as South African pop culture, and I’m happy to join in the fun as a presenter. The fan base is huge and massively loyal – it’s an honour to be part of such a fantastic production,” says Maleka.
Shirley Adonisi, recently appointed Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net says Maleka is the perfect choice to present Big Brother Mzansi season 3. “Lawrence has proven to be one of the top young talents on our screens, his vibrant and confident screen as well as stage presence is a perfect fit for Big Brother Mzansi. We can’t wait for viewers to tune in to what’s certainly going to be a very exciting season.”
The highly anticipated new season of Big Brother Mzansi will be the hottest yet. In addition to the 24-hour channel (DStv channel 198), daily shows and weekly highlights, viewers will also see the return of the most-liked feature, the Shower Hour. There will also be Friday game nights, Saturday night parties hosted with Channel O featuring the hottest DJs and, of course, the twists and turns of Sunday night evictions.
