Vanessa Mdee

Vanessa Hau Mdee, a.k.a. Vee, was born in Tanzania on 7 June 1988. The pint-sized urban beat connoisseur had the opportunity to travel the world at a young age, growing up in New York, Paris, Nairobi and Arusha. Vanessa quickly became familiar with many different forms of creative and performing arts.

Sizwe Dhlomo

Multi-talented TV presenter and club and radio DJ Sizwe Dhlomo first came to public attention when he won MTV Base's first ever African VJ search in October 2005. A youthful Sizwe, then 21, gave up a promising career as a computer programmer to step into the limelight with MTV Base World Chart Express. Seven years later, Dhlomo has become a well-known and popular fixture of the South African music and entertainment scene.
