Mzansi Wethu’s wedding reality show Our Perfect Wedding returns on Wednesday, 18 September at 19:00 and this time around with Brenda Ngxoli at the helm.
Ngxoli takes over from season one host Thuli Thabethe, “My heart is bittersweet to leave OPW as it was the first show I started and ran with from the beginning. It helped me make the transition from actress to presenter, an all-new journey which I thoroughly enjoyed. With the wedding season upon us once more it means more travel for the second season, but due to my studies the two schedules clashed and finishing my degree is a priority right now,” says Thabethe.
The role of Our Perfect Wedding season two host, is one that is special to the elated Ngxoli, “It is almost every girls dream to get married. As a single unmarried lady I saw this as a blessing and opportunity for me to learn about the marriage institution as well as African culture at large,” she says.
Ngxoli began her acting career in theatre, performing in shows like Pick Ups directed by Chris Weare, Docs Wife, I-Klips, Sacred Thorn and Yes Medem, both of which were directed by Warona Seane and ran at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival in 2004. Since then she has starred in television shows like Molo Fish 2, Interrogation Room, Tsha Tsha and the International Emmy-nominated Home Affairs.
“I am looking forward to travelling and meeting new people, and finding out secrets to successful loving relationships that make it to altar. I want to bring truth, love and honesty to the show as well as riveting excitement as we witness two souls join in holy matrimony,” adds Ngxoli.
Our Perfect Wedding is a reality television show that gets up close and personal with 12 couples across South Africa. Their dream is to pull off a perfect wedding, but the odds aren’t always in their favour. It will be broadcast from Wednesday, 18 September at 19:00 on Mzansi Wethu, channel 163 on DStv.
