Meet Thokozani Nkosi
As Thokozani was developing himself as a prolific TV producer, his skills expanded to marketing, advertising, PR and communications as a whole.
In 1997 he had a short stint at Channel O as a presenter and then moved on to SABC 1’s youth investigative Journalism show “Inside Info” where he was presenter and trainee Director. In his third year (1998), Thokozani majored in television directing and screenwriting. In 1999, after his four years at Wits Thokozani began to work full time as a trainee producer and later as a producer-presenter of a religious TV show called “Crux”. He worked as producer-presenter on “Crux” from 1999 until 2001. In 2002 Thokozani started his own production company with his former employer Hanlie Kruger. Hanlie had previously given Thokozani his ﬁrst opportunity as a volunteer production assistant while he was still at University; they clicked from the ﬁrst
moment they met. They called their new company “Eclipse Television Productions”. Eclipse started with just Hanlie and Thokozani as the only employees. The company then grew steadily. In 2005 Hanlie retired and Thokozani became 100% shareholder of the business. The company now produces long running TV shows including “It’s Gospel Time” (SABC 2), “The Chatroom” (SABC 1) and ‘Big up’ (SABC 1), all of which have been nominated for awards (Total of 4 nominations) at the 2008/19 South African Film and Television awards”. Eclipse TV also produces the popular reality Gospel music talent search show “I want to sing Gospel” (SABC 2), which is among SABC 2’s top three most-watched TV shows.
