E! Entertainment Television has announced that E! VIP, the locally produced celebrity profile series, is returning to the channel on Monday 24 October at 19:00. Seven brand new episodes will showcase more of Africa’s talent as the biggest names in the entertainment industry welcome viewers to their world.
The second part of the series will kick-off with a walk on the wild side of the hip-hop industry, as Cassper Nyovest shows off his digs and demonstrates the “Fill up the Dome” phenomenon for which he’s famous. And who could say no to a dedicated half hour with Ghanaian on-screen beauty Joselyn Dumas, Mozambique’s musical sensation Lizha James, or South African songstress Lira?
Get the scoop on how ProVerb’s been taking over the music scene sans manager. Meet the members of Kenyan afro-pop sensation Sauti Sol, and listen as songwriter-slash-producer Zonke speaks of her experiences writing for a range of artists from Mafikizolo to Black Coffee and opens up about motherhood.
E! VIP launched earlier this year, giving audiences an in-depth tour of the lives of their favourite African stars – Tiwa Savage, Diamond Platnumz, Rita Dominic, Mafikizolo and D’Banj. Each 30-minute episode profiles a different local talent through both exclusive and archived footage, to give viewers a front row seat to their performances, public appearances, behind-the-scenes antics, homes and personal lives.
E! VIP returns to E! Entertainment Television (DStv channel 124) on Monday 24 October at 19:00. Don’t miss it!
