New hosts of Nickelodeon’s fun TV quiz, Nickelodeon’s Genius


Smart cookies Lihle Msimang and Thapelo Hlophe are getting in touch with their inner geniuses and showing some personal chemistry as the new hosts of Nickelodeon’s fun TV quiz, Nickelodeon’s Genius brought to you by Absa.

Posing testing puzzles and problems in science and maths for kids aged nine to 13 from all over the country, Nickelodeon’s Genius Season 2 aims to find SA’s smartest kids while demonstrating what fun learning about these vital subjects can be! The show kicks off exclusively on NickToons (308) every Friday from 17 February at 15:00 CAT.

Commented Lihle, “It’s been a truly eye opening experience to work with the Nickelodeon’s Genius contestants and to catch their enthusiasm for mathematics and science! While they weren’t my best subjects at school, it was inspiring to see the knowledge, hard work and enthusiasm of all our contestants. We are all good at different things – we just need to know what they are!! In the words of Einstein: ‘Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.’”

Added Thapelo, “It’s been a huge privilege in my first presenting job to work with the future doctors and scientists of our nation, and to see such young kids compete in one of the toughest competitions, mentally. They have constantly surprised me with their intelligence and understanding, and the teamwork they demonstrate and the encouragement that they give to one another has been a joy to witness. In my view, each and every kid is a genius and I’m proud of every single one of them and it’s been an unforgettable experience working with them.”

Nickelodeon’s Genius is sponsored by Absa, and supported by the Government’s Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The winners will receive an amazing prize: a R100 000 Mega-U account for each member of the winning team and an unforgettable visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, USA – where the winners will eat lunch with a real, live astronaut – and a trip to Universal Studios!
