About Ba Kae
New Season, new home, new presenter and all guests.
09:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Ba Kae is a Tswana / Sotho name for “Where are They”. This is a 24 minute entertainment show where we pay tribute to the Icons who once entertained us, inspired us and became a part of our lives and made a mark on our country’s landscape.These were artists, sports stars, talk show hosts, news journalists, people who have graced our TV screens and made the front pages of our newspapers. Many of these Icons have been out of the limelight for many years, and since they made such a big impact in our lives we wonder, where are they? Ba Kae?
“Since BaKae is a show that celebrates South African icons, the key to our success was to have a host who himself needed no introduction, neither to the viewers nor the guests. He already commands respect; he converses almost from the same level as the guests. Tshepo Maseko is warm, spontaneous, sharp witted, intelligent, and respectful and has depth with a dose of humor and a great sense of timing. He is young enough to know the pulse of the nation, yet old enough to travel all the way down memory lane with the guest and the viewer. We knew that he would feel the same nostalgia, and the same level of excitement about the guest as would the viewer.” said Bev Ditsie – Ba Kae Creative Director.
