Our Perfect Wedding’s new host, Vele Manenje, is holding her head high in the face of hate mail from some viewers.
The trend of trolling presenters saw a number of her predecessors ditching the Mzansi Magic show, such as singer Aya Mpama, who bowed out after hosting only 13 episodes. But Manenje says she is here to do her job the best way she knows how and is not interested in impressing anyone.
“I am off social media because I do not want to be thrown off by the comments that are bound to come. For now, I don’t want to involve myself in those types of talks but just do my best.
“Having worked in a couple of places where people put you on social media and push their own agendas regarding you, those experiences have helped me develop a crocodile skin.
“I know that this is a big show, but having seen what the OPW fans can do to all the show’s presenters, I know what I have got myself into.
