The pursuit to discover the 2018 MTV Base VJ peaks as MTV Base (DStv channel 322) and the colourful fruity cooler, Breezer, announce the overall top three finalists.

The impressive trio is comprised of Namibian-born Nalitye Shan, based in Cape Town, Ntandose Mosibi from Daveyton and Angolan-born Jonatao Morais, who is based in Malvern East, in Joburg. All three contestants rose above the challenges, by serving their best 'Live Life in Colour' personas, and have triumphantly surpassed more than 5 000 hopefuls from four major cities throughout the search.

This week's challenges included impromptu press junkets and interviewing guest judges; the likes of local television personality, MTV Base Behind the Story host Pearl Thusi, and one of SA's most loved comedians, MTV's You Got Got star Tol A$$ Mo. The contestants also showcased their co-hosting skills while presenting alongside 2017 MTV Base VJ Search's Tshego Koke.

Voting closed on Tuesday and the final winner will be announced on Wednesday, 17 October at 21:30 CAT. MTV Base reserves the right to select the winner at its discretion and may take into consideration the number of votes received by a nominee.

The winner of the 2018 MTV Base VJ Search will receive a 12-month contract with MTV Base and also stand a chance to host the MTV Base show. In this role, the new VJ gets the opportunity to interview local and global stars, MC much sought-after events, attend world best international award shows, grace the glitzy red carpet and travel the continent and world as an ambassador for MTV Base, all while showing the rest of South Africa and the world how to 'Live Life in Colour' in true Breezer style.

Additionally, the winner will also receive a year's supply of fruity Breezers to keep life colourful, a brand-new FIAT car and an all-expenses paid trip worth N$140 000 to beautiful and colourful Thailand. Breezer wants the new star to celebrate in a truly exciting and colourful way and where better to do so, than in a country that will allow the winner to explore and embrace a culture that is as vibrant and fun as Breezer itself.
