The awards show itself will air live on M-Net Movies Premiere at 02:00am  WAT  on Monday 25 February, with a delayed broadcast in the evening of the same day at 8:00pm  WAT  on M-Net 108.

“This year I look forward to celebrating with the  Black Panther  cast as they head in with seven Oscar nods,” the host of DStv’s  The Voice SA  enthused.

“We have to speak to Bradley Cooper and salute his directing for  A Star Is Born, as well as his performance in it. We must also get Spike Lee – who has an honorary Oscar but has his first ever nomination as director for  BlackKklansman, which you can currently watch on Box Office. And then we hope to chat to Mahershala Ali who was nominated for  Green Book  and of course Glenn Close for  The Wife. We also can’t forget about Rami Malek andBohemian Rhapsody! And then of course, there’s the fashion” she beamed.

Anele made her debut as host on M-Net’s hit local reality singing competition  The Voice South Africa  on Sunday 3 February,  and wowed viewers with her passion, charm and energy. A favourite among  her fans, the radio and television personality has scooped  up  several awards, including a South African Film and Television Award (SAFTA) for Best Television Talk Show, Best Radio Presenter in the Best of Joburg 2018 annual survey and a Style Award.
