AMASA committee member Charlie Wannell says, "The gala event is made up of a mix of marketers, media people and creatives, so it was important to get MCs that could impress and hold the attention of such a media sophisticated target market."

"The theme for this year’s event is 'Logic and Magic', and Bongani and Mags really seem to epitomise this with their combined experience in marketing and entertainment, as well as their quirky humour as a duo," adds Wannell.

Mtolo, who holds the title of the Best Afternoon Drive Presenter on commercial radio, says, "As the industry Drive show movers and shakers in audio and visual entertainment media, Mags and I are 'stoked' to have been selected to host the awards evening."

Westerhof adds, "We will bring the flare and the synergy we share daily between 15:00 and 18:00 on East Coast Radio. Guests can expect 'bizazz', elegance and style – and there will most certainly be a dash of South African humour."

The 2018 AMASA Awards has received a number of entries and will also be adding Agency of the Year to its list of categories.
