Woooo Shem! SAMA hosts revealed!

2017 SAMA hosts have been announced.

The Samas are later this month and we have never been as excited as we are now to announce that Somizi Mhlongo and Tumi Morake have been chosen as the hosts.

Somizi, as we all know, is notorious for throwing all the shade with no reservations. Tumi Morake, an actress and comedian best known for her starring television sitcom roles as Millicent in Izoso Connexion, is also the queen of shade when she needs to be. This is a great pair, and yeyi, it’s going to be one for the books.


This year the Samas will be held on May 27 at Sun City, and you better believe that all the celebs will be there putting their best foot forward, or at least attempting to. We all know how fashion can be a serious problem on the red carpet at these award shows.

Somizi is everyone’s fave when it comes to hosting award shows. The masses spoke, and the Sama organisers listened , we couldn’t be happier. Morake on the other hand is known for her quirky and witty jokes and comments and her energy is totally unmatched.

The pair took to social media to announce the good news,

Last year, Somizi hosted the awards alongside radio personality and actress Thando Thabethe. No word has been given as to who will be in the green room this year. Last year, it was Phat Joe and Khanyi Mbau. We do hope that this year they choose people who have … well … that thing – no shade.
