Mpho Popps has been announced as the roastmaster on the much-anticipated “Comedy Central Roast of Khanyi Mbau”.
Khanyi got people screaming out their anticipation after sharing the trailer of the Comedy Central Roast of herself.
The reality star is excited about the show which will be recorded at a live taping this July; it will premiere on Comedy Central (DStv 122) and Showmax in August.
Mbau and Popps last shared a screen on Mzansi Magic’s “Ayeye” and let’s just say, on the back of the witty exchanges between the two of them, fans are in for a rib-tickling show.
Popps said being chosen to be the roastmaster will go down as one of his career milestones.
“This is just one of those career milestones that I couldn’t have imagined happening. Khanyi is a legend and an entertainment icon. For me to be the chosen one to throw her onto the flames to be roasted is not only historical, but legendary as well. As the roastmaster I say, ‘May the thickest skin win’,” said Popps.
On Instagram, Popps shared the short trailer of Mbau and him sitting in a bubble bath, he seems to play along with Mbau’s threats, “Anything you want Khanyi” he says, before winking.
In the caption, he made things pretty clear: “
I am the RoastMaster for the #RoastOfKhanyi
Sure the queen @mbaureloaded may have instructions but trust this Roastmaster is here to deliver for you on the @comedycentralaf #RoastOfKhanyi @showmaxonline.”
