This is one of those career milestones that I could not have imagined happening. Khanyi Mbau is a legend and an entertainment icon. For me to be the chosen one to throw her onto the flames to be roasted is not only historical but legendary as well. As the roastmaster, I say, "May the thickest skin win."

Dillon Khan, vice president of Comedy Central Africa, said the all-around entertainer is no stranger to the channel and they have worked with him on different projects before, reports IOL. He said:

"He did the opening set for the ‘Roast of Somizi’ and had an amazing performance. So him being the Roastmaster is a natural fit – a bit like the chemistry between him and Khanyi that is guaranteed to be electrifying.”
