The Lite Show returns this week for another exciting season following a successful debut season in 2020.
The new season premiered on Friday on Castle Lite’s official YouTube channel, CastleLiteSA.
The brand, earlier this month, dropped a fresh trailer of the new season, spilling the beans on the cast and revealing that host, Donovan Goliath and co-hosts, Mojak Lehoko, Lihle Msimang and Rouge are joined this season by the well-known comedian and media personality, Nina Hastie.
When Season 1 of The Lite Show launched last year, it was South Africa’s first-ever YouTube news talk show. This was a new concept for online entertainment in Africa, and audiences were excited to see the intimate and Liter side of SA’s most talented stars including Moonchild Sanelly, Tyson Ngubeni, Coconut Kelz, Rasta, DJ Sbu, Cassper Nyovest and Costa Tich on the couch.
“People want to be in the know, but it is hard to shift through the countless social media platforms and news channels to get the truly entertaining and remarkable nuggets. There is so much negativity in the world that we just wanted to create a platform that focused on topical news delivered in a lighthearted way. Our fans will leave in the know and feeling refreshed,” said Castle Lite Brand Director, Silke Bucker.
The new season kicks off this Friday with the first guest, Kenyan internet sensation, comedian, and the 2020 recipient of the People’s Choice Award for Favourite African Social Star, Elsa Majimbo, who has captured the attention of the world with her home-made, off-the-cuff humour, lockdown skits and satirical monologues.
Season 2 will consist of 8 episodes, premiering every two weeks, and fans will be excited to see many refreshed elements in the show and a range of A-class celebrities which will be revealed weekly.
The host of the show, Donovan Goliath, said he couldn’t be more excited to be back this season. “Now that we have a brand-new set and a new cast member, we are comfortable with the format, and you can already feel even on episode 1 that there is a whole new energy. We’ve really spent the time getting the right guests to match our energy so we’re expecting fun, spontaneous, highly charged episodes,” he said.
Remember to catch The Lite Show premiere on Friday, 21 May on Castle Lite’s official YouTube channel (CastleLiteSA).
