A suggestion that popular comedian Skhumba Hlophe be the host of next year's South African Music Awards (SAMAs) has divided opinion.
Twitter user Zarhmah Sibisi tweeted in support of Skhumba as host recently. She wrote:
RT [retweet] if you feel that Skhumba should be the next host of SAMA #SAMA24.
Sibisi's tweet received plenty of reactions. Over 3,600 people retweeted it, thereby expressing their support. More than 5,000 others liked it.
While many supported Sibisi's suggestion, others felt that Skhumba's jokes are not that funny. Briefly.co.za compiles some reactions below.
Some agreed that Skhumba would indeed make a great host of the SAMAs.
Some said he would "roast" everyone, including even the audience.
However, others felt Skhumba would not be a good pick.
Whatever the case, one thing is for sure — Skhumba's career as a standup comedian is blossoming.
Besides his popular role as Bheki in SABC1’s comedy drama Thandeka’s Diary, he also features on Kaya FM's show Good Friday.
