08 February 2021 | Art and Entertainment

STAFF REPORTER

Actor, comedian and Saturday Night Live legend Kenan Thompson will take kids on a wild and slimy ride as the host of the 2021 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards (KCA).
With Thompson at the helm, kids and parents around the world will be part of this year’s show like never before for an epic celebration of fan-favourite stars across the worlds of film, television, music, sports and more.
In southern Africa, the awards will broadcast on NickToons (DStv channel 308) on Monday, 15 March, at 17:30.
The show will also repeat on Nickelodeon (DStv channel 305) on Wednesday, 17 March, at 15:05.
For the first time ever, Nickelodeon’s Orange Blimp will leave the KCA venue and take fans on a wild ride around the world and beyond. Filled with slime and messy stunts, viewers will travel to outer space, Bikini Bottom and right into celebrities’ homes using XR technology. This year’s show will also feature live and interactive fan walls that bring celebrities and families at home to the main stage; second screen live voting all night long where fans stay in control, and an award presented by one lucky family chosen during the show.

Uniting children
Monde Twala, senior vice president and general manager at ViacomCBS Networks Africa said “Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2021 unites children and families across the globe by providing them with a powerful platform to celebrate their favourite personalities. We are especially proud of the incredible diversity of representation across the African continent and congratulate all nominees who are positively representing Africa at this global event. Parents and kids can expect lots of fun, slime, inspiration and laughter from this year’s innovative show”.
The six prominent African stars that have been nominated to represent Africa in the favourite African star category include: Miss Universe Zozibini Tunzi (South Africa), actress Thuso Mbedu (South Africa), two-time nominee philanthropist and Springbok rugby captain Siya Kolisi (South Africa), Liverpool Football Club soccer star Mo Salah (Egypt), Liverpool midfielder Sadio Mane (Senegal) and dancer and songstress Sheebah Karungi (Uganda).
