Vimbai Mutinhiri has been appointed as presenter for Africaâ€™s answer to E! Entertainment, a new programme on DStvâ€™s Africa Magic called Star Gist.
“I’m excited and grateful to M-Net for having so much faith in me,” she told Zimbojam recently.
Vimbai, speaking from her new base in Johannesburg, explained, â€œStar Gist is an exclusive insight into the African entertainment industry: celebrity news, red carpet events, behind the scenes photo shoots, music videos and movies, etc.â€
Star Gist will be primarily shot in Johannesburg but will include events, venues and stars from across the continent.
Vimbai (25), a model and blogger who became a household name across Africa when she took part in the Big Brother Africa reality show last year, is one of two presenters for the show.
Before her move to South Africa, Vimbai spent several months in Nigeria where she took part in Arise Africa Fashion Week and did editorials for three of Nigeria’s biggest magazines; Complete Fashion, Tozali and Themes mag.
Vimbaiâ€™s co-presenter on Star Gist is Lawrence Maleka (22) from South Africa.
According to M-Net, â€œStar Gist is all about giving viewers exclusive star profiles, behind-the-scenes features, and continental and international headlines â€“ on the daily. Think: red carpet glam, inside info and unprecedented access into the world of African and international celebrity royalty.â€â€”Zimbojam.com
