Following the success of her first series, TLC’s Most Extreme, which aired on TLC in February, Cupido will now permanently take her place on the channel as the new voice over artist, utilising her presenting skills to contribute to viewers of TLC Entertainment Africa.

“Carissa’s continued love and passion for TLC made her the perfect choice to become the channel’s new voice over artist. We have no doubt she will have a positive impact on our viewers and add a unique African flavour to TLC’s line-up of international lifestyle and entertainment programming,” says Dilek Doyran, VP of commercial development and country manager of Africa and the Mediterranean.

Cupido adds, “TLC Entertainment is one of the TV channels that I have always loved, even at a young age. So when I was announced as 2016 TLC Next Great Presenter, it was the most fulfilling feeling. And now, to continue working with the channel as their official voice is even more thrilling. I am so honoured to be working with such an inspiring and innovative entertainment brand and I look forward to what the future holds. Thank you, Africa, for the constant support.”

Cupido will begin her new voice over role on Tuesday, 1 August and will also be presenting one of the TLC Entertainment shows later in the year.
