About the hosts:
Celeste got her big break in the SABC1 reality series “So You Think You're Funny!” over a decade ago. She went on to become the first South African female comedian to record a DVD of her one woman show - Seriously, Celeste. But Celeste is not only a superb comedienne, she's is also a successful actress and has starred in seven seasons of a local soapie, Isibaya. She has also starred in series such as Lockdown and Looking For Love. In between live appearances and recording Red Cake, Celeste can also be seen in Trippin with Skhumba.
Zwai Bala has journeyed and matured from the kwaito trio TKZee into a musical entrepreneur. He is recognised as one of the top crossover producers and musical directors in the country. Zwai has been at it since he was 11 when he first entered “The Shell Road to Fame” in 1986 along with his sister Pinky Bala and reached the semi-finals. At age 12 he entered again, this time as a soloist and placed 1st runner up in the national finals and became the youngest soloist ever to claim that position. Bala’s life has always been history in the making – he entered the 1987 annual talent scout Golden Voice Competition organized by the Drakensberg Boys Choir School (DBCS), and he made it to the Final 7. His life changed when he was offered a bursary to the Drakensberg Boys Choir School.
His professional music career kicked off when he met high school peers Kabelo Mabalane and Tokollo Tshabalala, who then formed a group that changed the face of South African music TKZee.
