Sasheer Zamata Joins Saturday Night Live As New Cast Member (CONFIRMED)
Sasheer Zamata will join “Saturday Night Live” as a new cast member this month, a rep for NBC confirms to Gossip Cop.
She will make her debut on January 18, when Drake hosts.
Zamata’s addition to the cast comes after months of controversy over a lack of diversity at “SNL,” which has not had a black female star since Maya Rudolph left several years ago.
A number of women of color auditioned for the show last month.
