Details for the MTV Base VJ search

Have you, like me, ever wanted to be an MTV VJ? Do you love music, celebrities? Do you like globetrotting, hanging out at some of the swankiest parties around? Well here’s your chance to make it happen.

MTV Base is once again embarking on another VJ search that will allow the winner to join the ranks of previous winner Sizwe Dhlomo and Fikile “Fix” Moeti. Auditions around SA kick off in July, the 14th and the 21st to be precise.

Here’s what you will need to do in your audition: Imagine you’re live on MTV Base and need to present to the millions of MTV Base viewers across the continent. You’ll need to cover the following:

– Give a short presentation about yourself;
– Review your favourite artist and your favourite music video by this artist;
– Introduce this music video to the millions of viewers watching MTV base;
– Improvise and just be yourself, as we want to see what YOU are about.

It wont be an easy ride. The judges are some of the most respected people in the business and so don’t take this lying down. Live presenter Bonang Matheba, Hip-Hop star HHP, TV presenter and DJ Azania Mosaka and MTV Creative Director Tim Horwood will all be on the judging panel, so be prepared and be ready to wow!

The Queen B said, “I am so excited to be a judge in the 2012 MTV Base VJ Search.  It’s tough to break into the entertainment business, so this is a fantastic opportunity. I started my own TV career at the tender age of 15 so I know how much raw, untapped talent is out there just waiting to be found… I know we’re going to find someone out of this world!”

So do you have what it takes? Well then diarise these dates:

Saturday 14 July    Gateway Theatre of Shopping, Durban
Saturday 14 July    Cape Gate Shopping District, Cape Town
Saturday 21 July    Viacom International Media Networks Africa, 1 Saxon Road, Hyde Park,
Johannesburg

The weekly show will start on Tuesday the 7th of August and it will culminate in a grand finale set to take place in October

For me this is FML…. I’m over the hill, by two years. MAN!! Good luck to y’all. I did try my luck in 2006 in Cape Town. Good times, they clearly missed out on something good. I’m just saying 😉

  1. Gosh, I auditioned in Durbs 2006 as well. I think I did really well considering I just went ‘hi I’m Kate from East London, thanks MTV for this great opportunity, I hope I make the next round’ and I did. Two round ‘next rounds’ lol.

    I tho I I’ll give it one more shot. Age restriction? I’m 24 now.

    • Do it Kate. Do it for me! I’m 27, so I can’t enter… I’ll send you my good music, TV and entertainment vibes 😉

      • Yeah? I’m more in touch with sport now, so i’ll do it if I can I’ll rely on you for a music and entertainment tutorial kinda thing 😛

  2. The MTV team has probably decided to go with the three main centres ie Jozi, CT and Durbs. Try and get to the CT one if you can, it will be worth it.
