The countdown to the SAMAXXI has officially begun.
The event, which takes place on 19 April in Sun City, definitely be one to remember. One of the things to look forward to is, of course, HHP as a host. The Motswako rapper, who was unveiled as the MC, is excited about the gig. Speaking to ZAlebs about it, he said: "It's really overwhelming and hard to believe." He added that he never thought he'd be picked as a host.
Although it hasn't sunk in yet, the hip hop legend, promised a great show. "I will be myself... I"m promising to bring the bubbly side of Jabba."
The rapper, who's been in the industry for many years, said he's not sure if he'll be pulling any stunts or not, or if there'll be any outfit changes. He also mentioned that he's looking forward to the event which celebrates South African music.
There'll definitely be a lot to celebrate on the night as performers and guest presenters will walk away with a goodie bag with gifts worth a combined R2 million.
The SAMAs said in a statement: "The goodie bags are crammed with highly desirable items by leading local and international brands."
Some of the goodies include Ray-Ban sunglasses, John Craig wallet, Rocka earphones and caps, Iman make-up and Miglio Designer Swarovski crystal earrings and bracelet for men.
The show will air at 8pm on SABC 1.
