Skolopad was one of the people that queued up in Durban with hopes of becoming a SABC 3 presenter.

The word impossible means nothing to Skolopad fam, the girl is out to make a name for herself come what may and SABC 3 is her next target.

While by now you know Skolopad (and her many versions) we can bet you didn't think of her as a television presenter. 

So imagine our shock when we saw her posing at the recent SABC 3 Presenter Search over the weekend in KZN.

As it turns out, Skolopad has set her mind on bagging a presenting gig on SABC 3 and this was not her first audition. 

Skolopad aspires to be the next Queen B of this presenting business and she told TshisaLIVE all about it.

"This is not the first time I am going to these SABC 3 auditions and they are the only ones I am willing to audition for. That channel is very classy and I feel like it aligns perfectly with Nonhlanhla Qwabe or what people may say is the classy side to Skolopad."

Skolopad explained that she was in love with the idea of being attached to a show because usually the brand was already powerful. She explained that she's always love how "classy" SABC 3 was and the type of presenters the TV channel has. 

She said if she got an offer from any of the other channels she would not turn them down, however in an ideal world she would like to present an SABC 3 show.

"Of course I have an actual interest in presenting, but I know that it takes more than talent. I am always willing to learn though so getting to learn on the job would be great. It's all about what it means for a person to have a big brand or a show willing to attach themselves to him or her. You know, like Pabi is to Trending SA."

Skolopad said she had no doubt that she was classy enough for the gig, as Nonhlanhla, who according to her is a different person.

"People have gotten to know Skolopad, others love her and others not so much. But Nonhlanhla is very entertaining as well and I think the trick to being a good presenter is being interesting first, when there are no people watching. That's why I thought I should take the chance."

So how did it go? Was it a yes?

"I didn't make it into the second round but I will keep trying  and those that know me, know when I want something, I give it my all."

Askies but we're still rooting for you girl!
