On the 2nd of March 2019, the thirteenth edition of South African Film and Television Awards will be taking place at Sun City and fresh faces will be hosting South Africa film’s biggest night. The award ceremony, which has as its main objective over the past thirteen years to recognize and praise South African film talents while recognizing and encouraging the development of new talents in the industry, will be hosted this year by award-winning presenter, DJ, and actress Pearl Modiadie and seasoned media personality Thomas Msengana.

The talented South African radio duo from Metro FM’s Lunch Time Show will no doubt bring the fun and wit we have come to associate with them on the show to the carpets on the SAFTAS come the 2nd of March and we frankly cannot wait to see them do make SAFTAS 2019 even more fun.

The announcement was made on SAFTA’s official Instagram page.
