DJ Warras is bidding farewell to Live Amp after 6 years on the show after joining in 2012. Former presenters Pearl Thusi & Loot Love will return to handle things.
Warras’ former co-host Lerato Kganyago left the show for a better opportunity over at M-Net.
Warras issued a statement announcing his exit.
“In my time at Live Amp I have been fortunate to have worked with legends in the TV game at Urban Brew, Marv, Sjula, Chester, Akhumzi, Bev, Nhlanhla, and the team. I have worked alongside the biggest talent in the country, LootLove, Pearl Thusi, Lerato Kganyago, and all the artists we’ve broken records with over the years on the biggest music show in SA history on Mzansi’s biggest Channel, for 6 years. It’s the longest time for any one before me and I’m honoured, grateful, blessed and I would like to thank all of the above for making me an Icon of the SA entertainment industry,”
Live Amp Producer, Nhlanhla Mthimkhulu had nothing but good things to say about DJ Warras.
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with one of SA television’s most talented male hosts. Warras as the longest standing presenter of Live Amp, has stood the test of time and we shall forever be grateful for his passion and dedication to the programme. He leaves behind big shoes to fill which will prove great task for his predecessor,”
Live Amp will be broadcasting live from Sun City which is this year’s home to the SAMAs with DJ Warras and multi-talented guest presenter, Rorisang Thandekiso giving the viewers a teaser of what to expect in the SAMA night of musical bliss on Saturday, 2 June 2018 which will be broadcast on SABC1 at 19h30.
