In its 20 years of existence Channel O has built its popularity on solid foundations: a love for music, urban youth culture, celebrity lifestyle, and hot rides. Finally, the channel at the heart of local music culture has combined all these elements, to bring fans the hottest music lifestyle show on air: The Channel O Top 5 Drive.

The brand new production, takes us into the heads of South Africa’s most popular celebrities to find out what their current favourite tunes are. Hosted by effervescent-personality Denise Zimba, alongside the ladies’ favourite – driver and co-host and model, Tino Chinyani, the show will hit viewers’ screens every Saturday morning at 09:30.

The show, which has been deemed an “exciting taxi pick up of sorts” sees Denise and Tino give celebrities a “complimentary” Channel O ride, wherein they discuss the person’s favourite music tracks, career highlights and industry news, all in a dose of banter, humour and fun.

Produced by production company The Bar Leader TV, the 30-minute show intercuts the taxi ride with five music video selections. The crossover music show caters to all genres, and season one will see our hosts pick up celebrities like A-Reece, Amanda Black, Da Les, Dr Malinga and various others.

M-Net’s Director for Local Entertainment Channels, Reneilwe Sema commented on the new show, “Our fans love hot new music, and they love getting into their favourite celebrities’ headspaces. This show combines the best of both worlds. Also, look out for some cameo appearances from the stars of our popular dramas in season one.”

Catch the first season of the Top 5 Drive on Channel O (DStv Channel 320) from Saturday, 16 September at 9:30AM.
