Media personality Anele Mdoda is joining the World of Champions and she could not be happier! But people who are not happy about the move are social media users who believe the 947 breakfast host is not the right fit.
Anele and Ayanda Thabethe are said to be the new co-hosts of Supersport’s Super Saturday, which will be returning to the DSTV channel after being cancelled in 2008.
ANELE AND AYANDA THABETHE JOIN SUPERSPORT
The Celebrity Game Night host, who has just inked a 5-year deal with 947, will be joining seasoned sportscaster Neil Andrews who hosted the show with Phumlani Msibi and Terry Paine during its old format between 1999 and 2008.
Also joining Anele and Neil is rugby broadcaster Motshidisi Mohono, football presenter Thato Moeng, and Celebrity Game Night team leader Ayanda Thabethe.
According to entertainment commentator Phil Mphela, the show starts in July with the first episode going live at the Durban July.
‘I WILL PUSH FOR MORE NETBALL’
After Phil shared the news, an excited Anele responded by saying she will push for more netball coverage on the sports channel. She also shared a video ad for the show.
“It’s true! Super Saturday is back. I am the happiest to be part of this historic show that broke the mould in sports reporting. Our first show is live from the Durban July.Can’t wait and yes I am will push for more netball coverage”
TWEEPS NOT HAPPY WITH NEW SQUAD
However, Twitter users were not happy with the decision to have Anele and Ayanda join the sports channel.
“I love Anele but this recycling situation is not ayoba. There’s unearthed talent out there waiting and deserving of opportunities,” one tweep said.
Another tweep asked: “Why can’t sport be presided over by people in sport and not slay queens?”
“Seeking work in the entertainment industry with qualifications must be stressful.. The industry keeps recycling The same people,” another tweep said.
