Thapelo Mokoena To Host New Etv Home Makeover Show

Actor, presenter and filmmaker Thapelo Mokoena has a new gig as a host of a new makeover show on Etv. The show, which can be best described as a South African version of the American show Extreme Makeover currently airing on BBC Lifestyle -- for those of you who have DSTV, is called Sinawe72. 

The premise of the 13 episodes show, produced by Gray White Productions, goes like this; 
It features four families from different parts of the country renovating their houses non-stop over a 72 hour period in their bid for the grand prize of R250 000 worth of building materials and products from Build It. 
Each team consists of four active members and one mentor/coach, known as the Build It Champion.  
The Champion is the overall leader of the team and, although not allowed to get physically involved with the work, he is there to motivate and guide the team. He is also fully responsible for the teams’ building plan. Each week on the show, the teams are also given an additional construction related challenge. 
Once the 72 hours of non-stop construction is over, the viewers’ vote for their favourite team and decide on the overall winner. The announcement of the winner is made at the end of the series.
Monde Twala,’s Head of Channels had this to say about the show: 
“It’s often difficult for most people to make changes to their homes to better their lives. Sinawe72 gives some relief by helping Mzansi families to live more comfortably and realise their dream homes. It’s a great show that gives back to the community and is proud to be part of this make over experience”.
Sheridan Scott, Build It’s Production Advisor added:
'Build It’s new reality show Sinawe72 is about four families that go head-to-head for 72 continous hours, to renovate their homes. The families will get their hands dirty, strategizing, plastering, drilling and battling exhaustion in an attempt to win the R250 000 grand prize”.
Sinawe72 debuts March 5th at 17h30 on Etv. The show will air on Wednesdays same time with repeats on Thursdays at 12PM.
