Published

on

Ahead of Women’s Day, Discovery, the global leader in real life entertainment announces an ambassadorship with Relebogile Mabotja as the face of its general female entertainment channel, Real Time (DSTV 155).

Real Time, the brand’s first free-to-view channel in Africa, allows more people to access world-class lifestyle content, including those on entry-level DStv packages. The channel hosts entertaining shows from a variety of channels in the portfolio including TLC, ID, and Animal Planet.

She will make her official debut on the channel on National Women’s Day (Friday, 9 August 2019), and represent Real Time at various local events; the first one being the upcoming Jozi Film Festival which Real Time is a sponsor of, and Mabotja will be present to announce the winner of the Real Stories, told by Real People Award.

Mabotja continues to stamp her authority as one of the best talents in the entertainment industry with her radio, acting, emcee and presenting appearances, as well as, the producing and musical directing work she does with her company Lebotja Media and more.

“It’s such an honour to have been selected to represent Real Time in South Africa. I love what they stand for and it’s in line with who I am – being authentic and relatable, key brand pillars for me. I also happen to be a huge reality TV fan so I’ll definitely be locked to this channel,” said Mabotja.

With 16 years’ experience in the media and entertainment industry, she currently sits as the Vice Chairperson of SAMRO (the youngest appointed board member in its history) and is a sought-after industry expert where she plays a key role in paying it forward in various capacities by mentoring young talent and supporting causes close to her heart through her organisation, Relebogile Mabotja Foundation.

“Our vision for Real Time is that it will be a channel that resonates across South Africa and we believe Relebogile makes a perfect fit for the channel and in the homes of our fans. As the channel grows from strength to strength, audiences across the continent can now access and enjoy the best of our globally-loved content, wherever they may be, now with a local favourite,” said Henry Windridge, Head of Brand for Discovery, Middle East & Africa. “Her energy and professionalism are infectious. We are very proud to be working with her.”

“I had so much fun shooting this campaign. I would like to thank Discovery and the Real Time team for trusting me with their brand and for making me feel at home in this new partnership,” concluded Mabotja.

Kriya Gangiah To Host The 2022 Kyalami 9 Hour

Published

on

In 2019, Kyalami made a welcome return to the international motorsport calendar as the iconic 9 Hour endurance race returned as part of the Intercontinental GT Challenge series.

The 9 Hour was again held in 2020 notwithstanding the restrictions imposed by the global covid pandemic. The race returns in 2022 (rescheduled from December 2021) as the final round of the 2021 Intercontinental GT Challenge – Powered by Pirelli, having visited Europe (Spa 24 Hour) and the USA (Indianapolis 8 Hour).

The event will be held from the 3rd to the 5th of February 2022 at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit and local radio and television presenter Kriya Gangiah is set to host inserts on the Intercontinental GT Challenge social media pages alongside other industry experts Tasmin Pepper, Ernest Page, Daniel Haynes and Nicole Naude. Kriya will also form part of the live broadcast on SuperSport.

Kriya and the other presenters will give fans an inside look at the major racing event as they show fans what goes on behind the scenes. They will be talking to pit crew, chefs and other industry experts and will even give fans an inside look at what goes down inside the VIP lounges.

On the iconic event returning to South Africa, Kriya says “The Kyalami 9 Hour is one of the most prestigious races in the Intercontinental GT Challenge and the fact that it has come back to South Africa means that it forms part of the series with Europe (in Spa) and the United States (in Indianapolis). Having it in South Africa really shows the progress that South Africa is making as a destination for motorsport.”

She adds that she is thrilled to be a part of such an iconic event. “Being a part of the Kyalami 9 Hour as social media and live broadcast host is such an honour and it’s so great to see not only the international teams, but the South African teams as well, giving their all on the course. I am really proud of how our local team is developing and I can’t wait to give you an inside look at all the action on the IntercontinentalGTChallenge social media pages and on SuperSport.”

The 9 Hour race has a long history at Kyalami with the first race being hosted at the circuit’s inaugural meeting held on the 4th of November 1961. The 9 Hour race was hosted at Kyalami until the mid-1980’s with many races won by Ferrari and Porsche amongst other great racing marques. Drivers contested the 9 Hour from all around the world with race winners including David Piper, Derek Bell and Jacky Ickx.

The return of the race to Kyalami in 2019 has ensured that the mystic and heritage, that made the 9 Hour and international success, continues for a new generation to experience and enjoy.
