Johannesburg - Nomzamo Mbatha and Pearl Thusi will represent the continent this weekend when they bring more glitz and glam to the 2017 BET Awards in Los Angeles.
Nomzamo will co-host the International Awards stage alongside US model Eva Marcille, while Pearl Thusi will be hosting the Global Glitz and Glam on the red carpet alongside music manager and entrepreneur Johnny Wright.
Nomzamo said she was nervous after finding out that she would co-host the show: “But then my nerves calmed down and the excitement kicked in. I'm ready to celebrate all the African, European and Goodwill Ambassadors who are recipients of these awards. Eva Marcille is amazing and beautiful – the stage is home to her and she owns it. I'm ready to not only make South Africa and the continent proud, but to show them how to bring it."
MTV Base Lip Sync Battle Africa host Pearl Thusi is also excited about her gig on the red carpet: “I’m so honoured to play a part in the 2017 BET Experience. It’s my first time attending the BET Awards and it’s been incredible thus far. Everyone has been so gracious and incredible and I can’t wait to see the magic my co-host and I will create on the Global Glitz & Glam red carpet."
The 2017 BET Awards will air exclusively on BET (Dstv channel 129) on 27 June 2017 at 20:00.
