MC | TV Presenter & Producer
Known as ‘Kaos’, from his twelve-year stint as presenter on SABC’s Selimathunzi, Mncedi Matu needs no introduction. With a television career spanning nearly twenty years, he has been at the forefront of making good television in front of, and behind the camera.
From his early days as somewhat of a child-prodigy on Zap Mag, Junior Topsport and Mini TV, Mncedi has come a long way. In addition to television production and presenting, he has gained extensive experience in emceeing, having co-hosted high profile events such as the SAMA’s, SAFTA’s, Metro FM Awards, Emmy Awards and Fashion Week, to name but a few. He has interviewed heads of state and world celebrities alike, and has worked internationally. He has featured in numerous television commercials and activation campaigns, and has excelled in various brand ambassador roles.
Mncedi has an advertising background; after matriculating at the German School of Johannesburg, he earned an Advanced Advertising Diploma from Birnam Business College, from which he was then selected for the TBWA Hunt Lascaris Durban Thumbprint Programme. This two-year accelerated-development programme for promising young talent was run in association with AAA and exposed him to the inner-workings of the industry, providing him a solid base for a really unique skill-set. Over the years, Mncedi has also been active in supporting humanitarian initiatives such as the Haiti Disaster Fundraiser, Twilight Children’ s Home fundraisers, Unite Against Hunger feeding scheme, Ithemba Crusade For Hope and many others, which he remains passionate about.
