Busi Lurayi Is the Presenter Of Million Rand Money Drop

Busi Lurayi has been announced as the presenter of the format game show Million Rand Money Drop. Gotta admit, I was a tad surprised. I certainly would not have expected Busi Lurayi to present a high stakes show like this given that she's not known for her presenting prowess but Mnet says it has confidence in her skills. 

Busi Lurayi is known for her acting work. She has previously appeared on South African television screens in the role of Phumzile in City Ses'la. She has also been on high profile shows like Generations and Sokhulu & Partners. 
"When we were looking for a presenter for Million Rand Money Drop, the search was on for someone who could handle the pressure of a series with such high-stakes, while still being able to empathise with contestants, whether they are winning - or losing - large amounts of money," says M-Net in a press statement announcing Busi Lurayi.
Lurayi has some international productions such as ER and Wild at Heart under her belt as well, as an actress. 

Even without any presenting experience Mnet called Lurayi "the ideal choice" as presenter of Million Rand Money Drop. Quite an endorsement, if you ask me, so Ms Lurayi must have really impressed. You go girl!

Filming of the first season has been completed.
"There have only ever been a handful of female presenters of this series internationally, and Busi Lurayi brought the perfect combination of skill, quick-thinking, humour and affability to the role of host ... not to mention her stylish good looks too," says M-Net.
Million Rand Money Drop which is produced by Endemol South Africa will premiere on Wednesday 10 April at 19:30 on Mnet.

Congrats to Busi!!!!
