Ayanda Allie-Paine to host new weekly SABC2 prime time talk show, Visionaries' Lounge, interviewing 'self-made' successful South Africans.

SABC2's Morning Live presenter Ayanda Allie-Paine is the host of the new SABC2 talk show Visionaries' Lounge starting tonight on SABC2 at 20:30 in which she will interview"self-made" successful South Africans.

The prime time talk show addition follows exactly two years after Ayanda Allie-Paine joined SABC2's Morning Live and the SABC News division from eNCA (DStv 403) where she was a morning anchor.

Ayanda Allie-Paine will continue her Morning Live work where is a producer and presenter while she's doing the half hour weekly Visionaries' Lounge which will run for 26 weeks.

Visionaries' Lounge is very similar to CNBC Africa's (DStv 410) Kicking Doors in which DJ Sbu interviews successful entrepreneurs in a show with a strong focus on "self-help" and individual aspiration and inspiration.

Ayanda Allie-Paine will talk to South African achievers who tell their life stories and share "personal philosophies in building a successful life determined by one's desires and dreams" and SABC2 says Visionaries' Lounge will feature guests like dr. Imtiaz Sooliman, pastor Musa Sono and community builder Mirriam Zwane.

SABC2 promises that Visionaries' Lounge won't be "shallow or pretentious" but "sincere, informative, engaging and inspirational and will certainly resonate with our audiences".

Visionaries' Lounge is shot "in a relaxed studio environment where we get to know more about our guests on how they realised their dreams to be where they are today. We talk to individuals who are deep-rooted, inspired and are self-made who turn the impossible into possibilities," says SABC2.
