Tulimelila Shityuwete is the new host for Song Night. Song Night also happily announced that Chris B is the 2018 Song Night Ambassador. “Song Night has grown [in] leaps and bounds and it is all thanks to the support from our loyal audience, partners and without the support of RMB through First National Bank (FNB) Holdings Foundation Trust we would not be able to do the work we do,” says the founder and director of Song Night, Lize Ehlers.
