Shannon Leibach

Shannon Leibach

Shannon Leibach was born in Johannesburg on the 17th October 1995 and started acting at an early age. Since he was enrolled in school he participated in school concerts, eisteddfods, and toastmasters; winning numerous awards from the age of eight to eighteen.

When Shannon matriculated he knew that acting, MCing and presenting was his passion, he decided to study Theatre and Performance at Wits university from 2014 to 2018. While studying Shannon won a monologue competition hosted by the prestigious IMTA and was flown to New York where he placed 2nd in his age group for monologue, improv, scene, commercial and cold read work.

Not long after that Shannon participated in the annual Presenter Search on 3 competition which is an open audition hosted by SABC 3 for their new Top Billing, Expresso, and Afternoon Express shows. Out of 5000 people Shannon placed 7th narrowly missing out on the coveted top six which all landed SABC contracts but the best was yet to come.

In 2019, with no radio experience, Shannon was handpicked by DJ Fresh to join his brand new radio show on the radio station 947.  Dj Fresh had been one of the judges on Presenter Search on 3 and saw the massive potential he had and knew it was the right time to snatch him up.

Shannon has been a hit on the show with his sharp humor and down to earth nature that Joburg has come to adore. Shannon has worked with brands such as Vodacom and Samsung and lately you can see him rocking the DJ decks at a club near you as he is thoroughly addicted to any type of entertainment.

This concept album which was released on 3 January 2018, is a collaboration project, that sees Solo & The BETR Gang team up with 14 phenomenal features in SA Hip Hop.

The album is structured in the same way that a nationwide tour would be set up. Each song on the project represents a city in South Africa. All the regions are also represented by a feature from an artist, who originate from said places. This further reinforces the tour concept. Solo & The BETR Gang went on to create a never done before, 8-week residency at the AGOG Gallery in Maboneng and have not disappointed by putting on a brand-new show every week featuring special guests from the album as well as other industry heavyweights.

Dane Remendes

Dane Remendes

Dane is relatively new to the world of doing voice overs but what he lacks in experience he makes up for in enthusiasm. Dane describes himself as highly energetic, optimistic, outgoing, and passionate about everything he does.

Dane has a lighthearted approach to life and likes to think that he brings this quality across in his vocal performances.

In addition to more traditional voice work, he's a huge fan of spontaneously producing heavily exaggerated voices and accents, which leads him to believe he may be a good fit for voice-overs in more cartoonish, possibly animated productions.

For the past few years Dane has been working with Viacom International Media Networks Africa, providing the voice-overs for Nickelodeon Africa's on-air promos and assorted marketing materials. He's also worked alongside Urban Brew Studios, where he provided the narration for the game show Nickelodeon Genius - which was the result of a collaboration between Viacom and Urban Brew.

Dane has a youthful enthusiasm that is infectious, take a listen to his clips, he is a great addition for any client looking for a charismatic performance.
