According to IOL, The Masked Singer is a singing competition and guessing game.
“The performers are celebrities wearing elaborate head-to-toe costumes to conceal their identities from the host, panellists, audience, and other contestants.
“At the end of the voting, the contestant with the least votes has to reveal themselves and leave the competition,” the report said.
Times Live reported that this venture is the second show Anele’s production has executed since doing Netflix’s first Afrikaans series, Ludik with her partners Paul Buys and Frankie Du Toit.
“I’ve always wanted to produce ever since I was an Oprah [Winfrey] fan … I remember registering Anele Mdoda productions and never really did anything and to be fair I wasn’t ready and its such a lesson to anyone that just because they feel they are powerful enough to get into certain rooms, wait until the talent reaches the power,” Anele said, as per the report.
According to Sowetan Live, the host of the 947 Breakfast show said she fell in love with The Masked Singer because it is a family show. She said her wish has always been about creating a show that will bring family together to sit down and watch it.
