So the gauntlet has been drawn. On Thursday 26 November and Fridai 27 November 2015, the 2nd annual edition of SA Hottest MCs will air on MTV Base (DStv channel 322).
Last yeat the list came under some heat due to the questioning of credibility and supposed subjectivity of some of the panelists (Loot Love, Mo Flava, Vigilante) in the hip hop streets. New this year, the panel, presided by Sizwe Dhlomo, is all new:
Loyiso Gola – comedian/hip hop head
DJ T’bo Touch – Metro FM drive-time host
Ms Cosmo – 5FM radio host & hip hop DJ
Vukile Zondi – Managing Director of commercial at Gagasi FM
Melanie Triegaardt – MTVBase Music programmer
Fred Kayembe (yes, The Freditor)
“A lot of things inform the kind of people we have on the panel. Some of those things are credibility, influence and power,” commented facilitator Sizwe Dhlomo.
Did MTV Base get it right this time around? Let us know.
