Mo Flava has been announced as one of the new hosts for the popular SABC3 show “Trending SA”. He joins media personality LootLove, satirist Lesego Tlhabi and MaBlerh Salvatore who are all part of the all-new panel.
While this is amazing news for Flava, he has revealed to TshisaLIVE that it came as a surprise to him. He says wasn’t expecting it and did not think they would even consider him. He has also stated that he was just trying it out because he loves the show.
Recall that Mo had been on the show in the past as a guest host.
He further stated that he said yes to the gig because he has always wanted to join the field of Television commentary. He also revealed that hosting the show with the team last year made him desire it more.
“So, there are a couple of reasons why I said yes. This sort of talk/commentary television is one that I enjoy personally. Maybe it’s got to do with the fact that that’s the space that I am in as a broadcaster. I’ve always enjoyed shows like that.
“I didn’t even think they’d consider me because it wasn’t at the back of my mind. I was just saying because I love this show … let me try it out.”
“The other reason is that I got an opportunity to host with the team late last year, which gave me a bigger desire. So in other words, there was always an interest but then having done a few shows where I was hosting kinda gave me a more practical feeling — it made me want more. So when I got the call it was so easy to say yes.”
“My experience as a broadcaster has taught me a lot. Maybe in my YFM days I would be in trouble, but I think my experience has made me understand the sensitivity of a certain topic – but without shying away from the truth.”
