As if hosting the 2017 BET International Awards in LA as well as the the Essence Festival in New Orleans is not enough to turn us green with envy, Nomzamo Mbatha is already on her way back to the US to host the BET International Glitz & Glam stage at the Black Girls Rock (BGR) honouree celebration in New Jersey.
“I am still buzzing from my BET Awards and Essence Festival hosting experiences, then this call came through from BET International. It’s been a humbling period of Blessings. I couldn’t say no, as BGR is an initiative that I’ve followed for almost 10 years now and I truly commend its founder, Beverly Bond’s passion to honor and celebrate black girls (women) who are trailblazers in their various fields and social causes. One of the lessons I most treasure from my last US trip was to be surrounded by strong and successful women who embrace and celebrate each other. Women who congratulate each other with NO reservation as one BLACK GIRL’s win is for all of us,” said Mbatha in a statement.
At BGR Miss Mbatha will also be filming for BET A LIST, the weekly lifestyle show on BET Africa on which she’s a presenter.
On Sunday, 6 August, Mbatha will travel to Philadelphia to attend the screening of her latest big screen feature in the Pan African film, A Hotel Called Memory. The film premieres at the 6th Annual Blackstar Film Festival.
“It was such an amazing experience to be part of this project. Having to portray and deliver the character, without my voice was a refreshing challenge to my skills and I loved being able to push myself. Of course working with Akin Omotoso, who gives you great direction and allows you to find yourself in the character,” she said
Congratulations to Nomzamo Mbatha on her successful winning streaks!
