Have you ever imagined your favourite news show being anchored by a celebrity? Imagine Bebe Cool, Ruyonga, or APASS reading the news!! It happens every weekend! Every weekend on Urban TV, you get the chance to watch the news read by the chosen celebrity for that week.
We’d like to know our celebrities are not disinterested in the current affairs of the country and world, this is a great opportunity for them to be directly involved with educating and informing the masses. Also, it is a great opportunity to catch up with them.
Last week, Nana Kagga was on the show. Here’s what we thought of her!
It is quite evident that Nana was made for television. She looked very comfortable infront of the camera, spoke without flinching or stuttering, and gave the impression she actually had been out looking for these news stories :). Of course there were times she appeared to be on the edge of a huge guffaw but she kept it in and continued. I think she needs to be hired back to tv!
Nana’s elocution is excellent. I do not know whether it is her little-bit British accent but you can hear every word she says. She wasn’t in a hurry, pronounced every word clearly and had a good command. I think this lady could have been a news reader in another life.
Synergy with co-host
Vincent Carsozy is practically co-hosting the show with a different celebrity every Saturday. How do celebrities engage with him? Do they seemlessly connect or is it a struggle! Well, with Nana, it seemed like they were good old friends and were coordinating well! Kagga brought her charm and it worked.
Check out the after show video where she nominates the next celebrity and answers a few of our questions!
