MTV Base beefs up winter line-up

Pan-African music channel MTV base (DStv Channel 88) is significantly increasing its local programming content for its Autumn/Winter season. Kicking off in April 2007, MTV base will be introducing audiences across the continent to a wide range of new show formats, encompassing comedy, romance, entertainment news and ‘celebreality’ - topped off with a new, broader music focus.

New shows include ‘Player’, a new weekly music and entertainment news show presented by MTV base VJ Sizwe Dhlomo; ‘FIX’, presented by winner of the 2006 MTV base World Chart Express with Fanta VJ competition, Fikile Moeti; alternative music also gets its own dedicated slot on MTV base for the first time from June 2007, in the form of ‘Stay off the Grass’ fronted by Crazy Monkey funnyman Brendan Jack.

Then, MTV base’s new reality dating show, ‘Flavor of Love’ is imported from the USA and hosted by Public Enemy hype man, Flava Flav.
