Top Billing adds Chris Jaftha as new presenter

2015-09-08 06:00

Cape Town – Glamour entertainment magazine show Top Billing is adding Christopher Jaftha, known as just Chris, to its roster of presenters.

Chris Jaftha, who had won several best looking man awards, has been added to possibly follow in the testosterone filled footsteps of former longtime presenters Michael Mol and Janez Vermeiren.  

Chris landed a spot in the Top 11 during the reality show Presenter Search on 3 earlier this year on SABC3.

He made it to a place as one of the Top 5 in the competition which saw Jade Hubner win the prize to become the latest Top Billing presenter, with Danilo Acquisto who joined the SABC3 afternoon variety and talk show programme, Afternoon Express.

SABC3 and production company Tswelopele Productions gave no reason as to why Chris Jaftha has suddenly also been added.

The second season of the advertiser-funded production Win a Home on SABC3 which just started on Friday evenings also added two Presenter Search on 3 contestants – Khanya Siyengo and Mishka Patel – although Mishka Patel was dumped and removed from all marketing material just before the first episode was broadcast last month.

Chris Jaftha's first insert for Top Billing will be to cover the Durban Fashion Fair this week in the episode of 10 September.

He lives in Johannesburg and has studied Fine Art at the National School of Arts. He's appeared in several pantomimes and musicals and can currently also be seen in SABC3's musical drama Roer Jou Voete.
