SABC 3 and Cheeky Media have mutually accepted the resignation of SABC3’s Real Talk host, Anele Mdoda. After almost 2 years on the show, Anele bows out of Real Talk with her last live show airing on Friday, 8th June 2018.
“Real Talk with Anele has, since the beginning of season one, been exceptionally close to my heart and I have been enormously proud to work with SABC 3. I feel, for my own growth, it is time to leave the show and to focus on my career ambitions and prospects. I would like to thank SABC3, the viewers and everyone behind the show for the opportunity they afforded me through the show. Hopefully, this is not the end but see you later," said Anele.
The current season of Real Talk will run until the end of October 2018. Plans to acquire a new host are underway and more details will be communicated soon. SABC3 said Real Talk is an important part of South Africa’s DNA and assured viewers that the show will continue to deliver great television.
“Anele Mdoda was a great addition to the REAL TALK show. We wish her all the best with her future endeavours. Cheeky Media are known for selecting the right talent for our shows and Anele was an ideal fit for REAL TALK. With that said, we are excited to launch the new face of REAL TALK which will officially be announced in the near future,” said Janez Vermeiren, executive producer of Real Talk with Anele and Director Cheeky Media.
