MTV’s Ridiculousness Africa returns

Metrosmag,SA

Published

on

An immediate hit, Ridiculousness Africa debuted in July 2016 and had audiences cracking up (and cringing). The show features some of the funniest videos that the Internet has to offer along with commentary from award-winning actor, comedian and TV host, Thomas Gumede and a revolving-door panel of top notch African talent.

Gumede will be joined by co-hosts and co-conspirators, actress, singer and former Generations star Denise Zimba and happy go lucky MTV Base video jockey and Nigerian on-screen personality Ehizojia “Ehiz” Okoeguale. Shooting starts today in Spain.

Returning as the host of the second season is very exciting for Gumede, “It’s going to be better and even funnier than before. There’s a great team on air and behind the scenes, and going back to film in Spain and speaking Spanish to all the lovely ladies, definitely the cherry on the top.”

Vice President BET, Youth & Music for VIMN Africa, Monde Twala says: “Hold tight for another series of Internet comedy and catastrophes! We are delighted that Denise and Ehiz will be joining Thomas and bringing their larger-than-life personalities to the show – it’s going to be more fun than ever before!”

Says an excited Zimba: “I’ve always been fan of the show; it’s hilarious so I’m excited to be joining Thomas and Ehiz and to be doing my thing! I’m a perfect fit – the show is fun and colourful, a bunch of laughs with high energy. I’m going to be bringing all of me onto set. Everyone knows I’m crazy and loud and I’m gonna bring vibrant commentary. I just hope I can contain myself…”

Ehiz is also delighted to be on board: “I’m super excited about joining the team, I’ve been waiting a long time for this. Shout out to the MTV team for the hook up. I intend on bringing that DADABOY spice into it. So when I say im excited that’s just an understatement. It’s time to get ridiculous!”

Adds Twala, “There’s no holding back this season; each episode will feature new segments wth ridiculous African videos from all over the continent, including a big bang All Africa episode for Die-Hard fans.”

Bearing the warning “don’t try this at home” Ridiculousness Africa is the home-grown version of Ridiculousness, MTV’s long-running video clip show hosted by Rob Dyrdek. The series is taped on location in Spain, with Gumede, Zimba and Ehiz all currently in Madrid on location
