The Masked Singer SA 2

Comedian and TV personality Mpho Popps is the host of the local version of the show based on the South Korean series Masked Singer.

Mpho will be joined by a returning panel of celebrity detectives consisting of J. Something of MiCasa fame, serial reality slut Somizi Mhlongo, socialite and DJ Sithelo Shozi and comedian Skhumba Hlophe.

In every episode celebrated, personalities and entertainment superstars sing well-known songs while bejewelled in full-body costumes and masks to hide their identities.

The flamboyant masks and costumes have personalities of their own and invite as much commentary as the performances themselves do.

A celebrity panel of detectives must guess who is behind the mask.

The studio audience is a rich component of the show, voting together with the celebrity detectives for their favourite performance.

At the end of the show, the least popular performers are eliminated, but not before the mask is removed to reveal their identity.

Who is really behind the mask? Is it possible to reframe how others see us or maybe play a little with solid identities?

Some rugby players may turn out to be the best singers – who knows?
