After weeks of tough challenges, sweat and tears, 26-year-old  Kayise Ngqula clinched the title of Our Perfect Wedding’s new presenter. Auditions for the OPW presenter search were held in Johannesburg, East London and Durban and guest judges included former and current OPW presenters Thembisa Mdoda, Nomsa Buthelezi and Phumeza Mdabe.

Singers Moneoa and Unathi Msengana and TV personality Bonang Matheba were also part of the judging panel. The finale was held at the Shepstone Gardens in Mountain View, Johannesburg, where the top six finalists were dressed to the nines and host Mbali Nkosi announced teh winner as voted for by the public.

Still beaming with excitement, Kayise, an international relations and politics student at the University of Johannesburg, expressed her joy after the big reveal. “I’m over the moon and I can’t wait to start this new journey. I want to give myself fully to this process. One of the things I love about OPW is how it celebrates diversity and even though I’m Xhosa, I hope to share myself with the viewers and include all the amazing cultures we have in this country,” she said.

“It’s been a lovely journey to have Our Perfect Wedding viewers participating in finding a new presenter. We are excited to welcome Kayise and believe she will continue to bring her infectious energy to the screens as she’s done in the past weeks”, says Reneilwe Sema, director of local entertainment channels at M-Net.

Along with new presenter crown, Kayise also walked away with a cash prize of R100 000 – courtesy of Mzansi Magic.
