Season 1

Verified is a South African reality competition and comedy clip show in which each week online content creators showcase their funniest video clips to the studio audience and viewers, who vote for the winner to get "verified".

Every day we receive and send video clips via Whatsapp or we see them and share them on our social media feeds. Behind the production of these video clips are content creators whose aim is to keep us laughing and clicking for more.

All these online content creators claim to be the best in the game and have bestowed upon themselves a lot of disputed titles.

To settle the score once and for all, SABC1 created this platform for these content creators to compete for the title of "True MVP" (most valuable players) in the content-creation space and be verified on national television.

There are 13 MVP titles to win in the show - one winner every week for three months.

This means there are 13 contests over 13 weeks and in each contest, two content creators each bring four of their freshest and funniest short clips to the Verified studio and play them for viewers at home and to a live studio audience.

The content creator who gets the most love from the studio audience by way of a clap-o-meter wins the day and gets verified as the True MVP of the game for the week.

Over 13 episodes, 13 MVPs are verified and walk away with bragging rights as izinja ze game; settling the MVP status disputes once and for all.

Verified is hosted by Nehemiah Tjatji and produced by Eclipse! Television with executive producer Thokozani Nkosi.
