South Africa's most-watched talent search show, SA's Got Talent, is proud to announce Samsung as the headline sponsor for its 8th season, on e.tv.

SA's Got Talent showcases new and innovative talent every year to millions of viewers and has now found a partner in Samsung who also pride themselves on innovation and unlocking potential.

Apart from being seen by millions of viewers across Mzansi, and being given the chance to launch careers in the entertainment industry, SA's Got Talent contestants now have even more to compete for; the partnership with Samsung ensures that the prize pot is now the biggest in the show’s history, for the winner and the two finale runners-up.

Marlon Davids, MD of e.tv, is ecstatic that Samsung has come on board as the headline sponsor for SA's Got Talent. “We are thrilled to have signed this exciting sponsorship deal between the country’s biggest talent search and one of the world’s biggest electronic brands.”

Michelle Potgieter, Director: Corporate Marketing & Communications at Samsung South Africa, said Samsung is enthusiastic about supporting dreams and the remarkable talent we have in South Africa. “Like these stars strive to be the best at their game and proudly stand out from the rest, we, through this sponsorship, want to assist these talented individuals to step into the light to show their stellar qualities. We are proud to be part of this exciting venture and we urge South Africans to step up and take centre stage with SA’s Got Talent, proudly brought to you by Samsung J series.”
