Auditions will take place on Saturday, 18 August 2018 at Zone 6 in Diepkloof, Soweto between 09:00 and 16:00. The official after-party to celebrate the Johannesburg leg will be hosted by Breezer at Moja Cafe on Sunday, 19 August, featuring performances by great local artists.
The crews have travelled from Durban, to Cape Town and East London in search of the country’s most colourful individuals with enough confidence, vibrancy and talent to make it into the top 10, and the Breezer Mansion, where they will compete to be the next MTV Base VJ. Now it’s Jozi’s turn to showcase its brightest stars with enough swag to own the screens. Celebrity judges, funny man Thomas Gumede, the gorgeous Boity Thulo and music icon Kelly Khumalo will be putting the spotlight on Jozi’s talent, to bring the most colourful and vibrant personalities to the fore, in the hopes of finding SA’s next big star.
The pair will be scouting the crowds for the Breezer Colour Icon – an individual that knows how to bring their most colourful swag, and who will join them at the finale event in October to represent Breezer, the cooler that believes life is best lived in colour.
The 2018 VJ search winner will walk away with some seriously lit prizes including a 12-month contract with MTV Base, a year’s supply of fruity Breezers to keep life colourful, a brand new car and an all-expenses-paid trip worth R140 000 to the beautiful and colourful Thailand. To make the experience even more interesting, the winner will be joined by 2017 MTV Base VJ winner, Tshego Koko, on this once-in-a-lifetime trip, where Tshego will showcase exactly what it takes to be the best VJ.
