Get ready for the MTV VJ Search show

Posted by radio On August - 14 - 2013

Big dreams, big personalities and even bigger hair are all on display as MTV Base VJ Search Brought To You By Citroën DS3 Cabrio goes on air for the first time on MTV Base, channel 322 on Friday at 17:00 CAT.


With MTV Base and Citroën searching high and low for the next VJ for music channel MTV Base, Durban is the first stop, as KZN’s talented – and not so talented – would-be VJs turn up in droves in the hope of escaping the ordinary and fulfilling their dreams of TV stardom.


Former VJ winner Nomuzi Mabena hosts the fun-packed programme with her typical brio and light-hearted enthusiasm, meeting with some of the hundreds of young hopefuls who turn out at the Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Umhlanga for the auditions, including garrulous twins Pretty and Precious, the zany “Consultant” and ambitious model and radio presenter Wandile Chamane.


At stake in the talent competition is a knockout prize: a fabulous contract with MTV Base worth R500 000, while the winner will drive away in a brand new Citroën DS3 Cabrio worth R315 000. With just a few minutes to show off their skills, these Durban wannabes have to pull out all the stops to impress the MTV Base producers and make it through to the callbacks.


The turnout may be great and the talent awesome, but only 20 candidates will go on to compete in front of celebrity judges Bonang Matheba (@Bonang_M), Sizwe Dhlomo (@SizweDhlomo) and Joey Rasdien (@joeyrasdien) in next week’s episode (23 August). Tune in MTV Base VJ Search Brought To You By Citroën DS3 Cabrio to find out who makes it through to the next stage and whose hopes and dreams lie on the cutting room floor – at least until next time!


Starting 16 August, MTV Base and Citroën are offering one anti-ordinary viewer the opportunity to become a #BackSeatVJ and drive away in the awesome Citroën DS3 Cabrio. Each week, watch the show, complete the Twitter challenge, and if you impress the judges you could be selected to go head-to-head in a final #BackSeatVJ showdown for the right to drive away in a Citroën DS3 Cabrio. Start by following @CitroënSA, #BackSeatVJ and visit for the full low-down
