Do you think you have what it takes to be a Video Jockey? Zambezi Magic (160) is calling on all vivacious, fun and energetic young people to submit their video entries for the channel’s first Presenter Search for the music show ZED Top 10.
According to Addiel Dzinoreva, head of Zambezi Magic, this is just one way the channel is continuing to stay true to its promise of being the home of Southern African TV Entertainment.
"This presenter search will not only add more local spices and zing into the already incredible show, but it will also give our audiences a chance to be part of this local growth by helping pick their best presenter for the show," says Dzinoreva.
The campaign to uncover a local ZED Top 10 presenter will kick off from 25 November. The channel is looking for a multi-lingual and charismatic individual, between 18 and 26 years old, who is passionate about television, music and the world of entertainment. It’s a great opportunity for any young Zambian who believes they have what it takes to be the very first Zambezi Magic VJ.
To enter, follow Zambezi Magic on Instagram. Upload a 15 seconds video introducing yourself and your favourite Zambian music video. Tag the Zambezi Magic official Instagram account and include the hashtag #ZedTop10.
Alternatively, upload your 15 seconds video on YouTube, include the hashtag #ZedTop10 in the title and post it on the Zambezi Magic Facebook wall. The closing date for all entries is midnight 3 January 2016.
A panel of judges from Zambezi Magic will select its Top 10 entries and the public will vote. The Top 2 presenters will each be given an opportunity to present an episode of the ZED Top 10 show. The public will then vote for their favourite presenter.
The winner will be contracted to present the second season of the ZED Top 10 in 2016, on terms and conditions to be agreed.
Zambezi Magic shall not be obliged to contract a presenter if Zambezi Magic is of the opinion that the presenter does not meet the minimum standard required of the Zambezi Magic presenters.
Zambia’s ZED Top 10 airs on Fridays at 20:30 CAT on channel 160.
