E! Africa on DStv Channel has announced its new late-night show, Celebrity Game Night which will be hosted by Anele Mdoda alongside Ayanda Thabethe and Jason Goliath.
The big announcement was made on social media, “We are so excited to reveal the faces of our brand-new show, Celebrity Game Night! Which will be aired late 2019 on E!”.
The 10-episode season will have one-hour shows, filled with pop culture quizzes and games pioneered through playful banter. Anele Mdoda is no stranger to holding down the fort when it comes to hosting television shows.
In a statement from the channel, “It’s based on the Jane Lynch-hosted game show Hollywood Game Night, which airs on NBC in America. E!’s owned by a division of NBC Universal so the format belongs to them. Interestingly the name of our local version is actually the original name of the show. It was titled Celebrity Game Night before it debuted in America eight years ago but the name was changed to include Hollywood before it went on air for the first time”
