She recently made her big-screen debut in the local romcom Love by Chance, but Denise Zimba can’t wait for us to her on the small screen – this time as the host of the MTV show Ridiculousness Africa.

The outspoken 28-year-old takes over the reins of the revamped show from fan favourite Boity Thulo. “I’ve been ready for a new opportunity,” Denise says of her new gig.

Also new to the show is Nigerian MTV Base VJ Ehizojia “Ehiz” Okoeguale, who replaces Nigerian comedian Basketmouth, and Thomas Gumede rounds off the hosting trio.

Denise, who got her big break as Mary Gumede in Generations: The Legacy, says shooting the show in Spain was a dream come true.
