It's a case of another presenting gig and another Rand for Boity Thulo who recently revealed that she’d be the new presenter on e.tv's Club 808. Boity will be replacing Nonhle Thema, who hung up her presenter flag last week. Nonhle cited that she was now getting too old for music shows and it was time to make way for the youngins. Can we say out with the old and in with the new?
Jokes aside, we get where Nonhle is coming from, especially considering that Zabalaza is now keeping her busy too (By the way keep a look out for our interview with the Zabalaza crew, Nonhle is included there too).
But can anyone argue that e.tv have done an excellent job of replacing Nonhle? Boity is one of the biggest stars in the country and this is the perfect new challenge for one of Mzansi's brightest young talents.
The ecstatic Rockville actress received so much support from her celebrity peers, she even gushed in excitement promising Nonhle that she’d call her for some presenting advice. Hmm must be nice to know you got people like Nonhle on speed dial neh?
Now we know that many Boity haters are not too happy with her new gig but as the saying goes, "nizaba strong, shem". Though her acting and presenting skills have been questioned by many of her critics, seasoned presenters like Bonang and Lalla Hirayama saw no crime in Boity being named Club 808’s newest face.
