Our Perfect Wedding has had a number of presenters come and go, and fans of the show weren't sure if they'd like the new one, but she captured viewers' hearts and is perfect for the role. She's just what the show needed to be even more awesome.
Singer and actress Vele Manenje joined the Our Perfect Wedding family, and she is fitting in perfectly.
Fans adore her, and she's doing a fantastic job of presenting the popular TV series. It has long been a wish of Vele to host #OPW.
The SowetanLIVE reports that Vele auditioned 3 times for the role of presenter before she finally landed the gig.
I love OPW because I'm a people's person. I have energy and an aura that speaks to people. Furthermore, the show helps them to realise their dream wedding.
The 30-year-old took over from Nomsa Buthelezi and while fans of the show were sceptical at first. she quickly won their hearts and is now admired and loved.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Vele can speak English, Sotho, Pedi, Zulu, Venda, Pedi, Tsonga and Xhosa fluently. Wow!
Her first episode was met with some negativity, but that didn't shake her. After all, people didn't complain about her, only about seeing a new host.
I was pleased that the comments were not about my talent but they had a problem of seeing a new person.
Vele loved performing and acting since childhood and says she's been acting since she was 5. She studied at the National School of the Arts in Johannesburg.
She started presenting at a young age and played host on shows like Rivoningo, Takalani Sesame, and Siyakholwa.
Vele continued her acting career and was seen in A Place Called Home and Single Galz.
We love seeing her on #OPW and look forward to the next episode.
