Lerai Rakoditsoe has reflected on the significance of being the first-ever African host to have a show on Nickelodeon, as she is set to host the channel’s NickMusic.
Lerai Rakoditsoe took to Instagram on Thursday, 29 April 2021, to reflect on having landed the monumental hosting job for the upcoming music show, NickMusic, on Nickelodeon. This makes her the first African personality to ever front a show on the channel since its inception.
She captioned the post, “Having grown up watching the channel myself, I know how important it is for a young mind to see someone like themselves on screen. Authentic representation is really important and to see *myself* on the channel is mind-blowing. I’m extremely grateful and looking forward to interacting with viewers across Africa.”
NickMusic is scheduled to air its first episode on Monday, 17 May 2021, however, its broadcast time has yet to be confirmed.
