Morake made her last appearance on Our Perfect Wedding last Sunday.
The fourth season of Our Perfect Wedding (OPW) was a season like no other. Tumi Morake kept audience entertained and laughing as they witnessed some of the most outrageous, hilarious and beautiful wedding moments on the show so far.
After giving audiences a season full of laughter, the comic now bids the show a goodbye.
“Watch me as I bow out of OPW tonight. What a journey! Thank you @Mzansi Magic and welcome to @Ayampampa who is taking over the wheels,” Tumi wrote on Instagram.
Tumi’s final episode was aired previous night, and a new broadcaster will take over from Sunday.
Speaking to DESTINY in an interview before joining OPW, Morake said she would not take her funny side to the show.
“I know most people think that I’ll be creating fun of the weddings featured, but I’m just looking forward to having a good time on the show.
“I mean, what female doesn’t like attending weddings?” she said before bursting into laughter. Aware of the hectic schedule for the show, Tumi said she’d do things at her own speed.
“I feel like when you pick your career, you have an idea of the hurdles it comes with. So far, it’s controllable,” she reflects.
And in her position, it’s too late to turn around and complain about the challenges and her excitement for both family and work shinning through in all she does.
Morake’s successor on the gig, Ayanda Mpama, is overjoyed about her new show.
Mzansi audiences fell in love with the OPW show because of its booming.
“I love ‘love’ and being a part of this production means that every weekend I get to meet up with different couples from different backgrounds and get to know them, which I find breathtaking.
“It also means that every Sunday I get to work together with multitudes of spectators. It’s any performer’s vision to be able to reach lot of people at one time.”
Apart from getting to the top six on Idols SA in 2005, Mpama has also hosted Soul Sundays, a music gig that was televised on SABC. She is also a recording musician who released her debut album A state of Aya in 2007. Mpama also holds a degree in music and she says the most thrilling thing about Our Perfect Wedding is that every wedding is different.
“It does well because there is never a boring moment. Each nuptial comes with its own taste and surprises. I’m looking forward to meeting the couples and their families, and witnessing their love stories first hand.”
