Kriya Gangiah joins SABC3’s Mela as new host!


Kriya Gangiah has been named the presenter of the SABC3’s popular eastern culture and lifestyle show Mela! She will make her debut appearance on the fifth season of the show this Sunday (February 21).

Kriya is a South African DJ, MC, businesswoman, actress and model best known as a presenter on Jacaranda FM’s The Late Show and Saturday Breakfast. Kriya also presents the South African Celebrity news show ZAlebs on SowetoTV and Glow TV.

“I grew up watching Eastern inspired lifestyle shows with my family and it was a favourite pastime of ours to come together and watch at home. Now that I have the opportunity to be on the other side of the screen by working on such a prestigious show – it feels slightly surreal. I look forward to connecting with South African audience every weekend on Mela while remaining on the radio airwaves throughout the week. 2016 is already proving to be a year full of wonderful opportunities and I intend on making the most of every chance I get to entertain and connect with people,” says Kriya Gangiah

Be sure to tune into Mela @ 13:30 every Sunday from February  21 on SABC3!
