We are counting the days until, well… #GrudgementDay. Here is the panel of who will be roasting AKA, and roasting him good!
Mark Fish may have made a bit of a “twit” of himself by accidentally announcing the passing of very much alive Sipho “Hotstix” Mabuse, but who knows better than anyone how to defend and attack without “taking the bait”.
Teaming up with Mark is Nina Hastie, who has no filter when it comes to speaking her mind. This pint-sized stick of dynamite knows how to talk big.

Always a delight on stage, comedian Joey Rasdien is going to make bunny chow out of AKA.

Moonchild Sanelly will bring plenty of heat. The Ghetto-funk and Gqom singer has even been recognised by the great Beyoncé on her track with DJ Maphorisa. Will she strip AKA down and expose the naked truth?
Moshe Ndiki stands tall on stage and is a role model for all, but he still has enough fire to take on the Man – AKA.
Last but never least, Pierre Van Pletzen, also known as “Oubaas”, will fan the flames onto AKA when he hits the stage. We can’t wait.
To get into the spirit watch some of these deliciously brutal putdowns from British comedian Jimmy Carr at the Roast of Kenny Kunene.
And this marvellous burn from news anchor and presenter Joanne Joseph, at the Roast of Somizi.
The Roast lands on Comedy Central on 11 March 2019, with the full uncut, uncensored version only available on Showmax, from 12 March 2019.
