TV and entertainment journalist Phil Mpela broke the news yesterday based on a few murmurs that he had heard but it has officially been confirmed that Thembisa Mdoda will no longer be hosting the popular Mzansi Magic show, Our Perfect Wedding.
The news comes as Mdoda wraps up the remaining three episodes of this season. After that, Connect TV (the production house responsible for OPW) will reportedly host a presenter search where Mdoda will join Brenda Ngxoli and Tumi Morake as judges in the search for OPW's next face.
Speaking to Destiny Mag, M-Net Head of Public Relations: Local Entertainment Channels, Nondumiso Mabece, confirmed this news earlier today saying that it was merely a case of Mdoda's contract coming to an end.
“Generally, we bring in new presenters for different seasons. We are now trying to run an exercise to conduct an audition around the country so that we can find a person who can then become the OPW presenter,” said Mabece.
In the mean time, you can let Thembisa know just how much you will miss her by voting for her in the Mzansi Magic viewer's choice awards which are set to take place this Saturday at the Sandton Convention Centre.
