Siyabonga Ngwekazi and Eku Edewor To Host #CHOAMVA14

0

Come Saturday, 29 November Channel O would celebrate the biggest night in African music; the 2014 Channel O Africa Music Video Awards.
 
Broadcast live from Nasrec Expo Centre in Soweto, this year’s show-stopping event will be hosted by the ever versatile, seasoned TV presenter and director Siyabonga “Scoop” Ngwekazi alongside Charming TV darling and actress Eku Edewor.
 
Hailing from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, Siyabonga gained an interest in Arts from a young age and cut his teeth in the industry when he presented the pop culture magazine show Street Journal. Since then, he alongside Nonhle Thema, became the face of Vuzu when the youth channel launched in 2009 co-hosting the weekday celebrity news magazine show V Entertainment.  “I am honoured and privileged for this awesome opportunity to be hosting Africa’s longest standing music video awards show,” says Siya.
 
His striking & multi-talented co-host is a graduate of English and Theatre from the University of Warwick and has trained as an actress at the New York Film Academy. Whether gracing the covers of magazines or interviewing stars on 53 Extra, Eku has established herself firmly in the African entertainment industry as a talent on the rise. Born Georgina Chloe Eku Edewor-Thorley in London to Nigerian and British parents, Eku’s first job in entertainment was as a production assistant to film producer, Damian Jones (The Iron LadyBelle). Her first major movie role was in Flower Girl, which has gone on to win several awards and is being showed worldwide. She will appear on the UK television series The Rules of Engagement and recently wrapped shooting the movie When Love Comes Around in Ghana. “I feel incredibly blessed that I have been given a great opportunity to display how much I love what I do and I look forward to having a great night celebrating our musicians on the largest music platform in Africa,” adds an elated Eku.
 
The Channel O Africa Music Video Awards are the only public voted annual music video awards show broadcast around the continent that exclusively feature African artists. Voting takes place across a wide range of digital platforms: via the website and mobile site – voting on the website and on the mobile site [www.channelo.tv] is free and you are allowed to vote up to 100 times on both platforms respectively. Voting is still open and closes on the 23rd of November at midnight.
