CHANNEL O (article first published : 2006-12-18)

Channel O, Africa’s premier music channel ushers in the New Year with three new cutting edge shows.

On the local front, Mzanzi Ridez, a car customising show hosted by Ready D & Sakia Falken hits the airwaves on January 4 at 18h00. The show will feature all the car gadgets that are synonymous with car customizing from car budget builds to cosmetic aspects like mag wheels and safety issues like brakes and safety belts.

Hot on its trail is Behind the Video which offers the lowdown on all the going-ons that take place when big names like Snoop and Mariah Carey shoot their videos. Get a chance to see your favourite artist sweat it out to get the perfect shot. Find out whether Mariah Carey is a prima donna or a perfectionist. Behind the Video premieres on January 7 at 11h00.

O-Zone; filmed at Primi Piatti in Rosebank rounds off the week with laid back slow jams presented by Grace Meadows. She will entertain celebrity guests and allow Channel O fans the opportunity to interact with guests and send shouts outs to friends across the continent. Also on the show will be a Slam Poet segment which will feature a showdown between two poets where the winner will be voted for by the audience. This will be done in collaboration with Y-fm’s Word of Mouth show. O-Zone will be broadcast from January 14 at 16h00.

Yolisa Phahle, Channel O General Manager comments: “Ready D is a new face on the Channel but is known to our audience for his dee jaying, his love of cars, break dancing a well as the work he does with the young people. Behind the Video is a series never seen before on Channel O and following on from the success of Beef and Diamond Life we are committed to bringing our audience the best of what is internationally available.”

Channel O is available on channel 87 on the DStv bouquet.
