After a very eventful year, TV star and actress Nomzamo Mbatha is ready to wrap up 2017 on a very high note with another international recognition under her belt.
Nomzamo was recently named Woman of the Year 2017 by a British based African magazine, KOKO. This adds to her countless milestones this year both locally and internationally.
Arguably, the 27-year-old actress and brand ambassador conquered the international space this year.
In addition to getting nominated for an African Pride Award, the Durban beauty co-hosted BET International stage alongside the former winner of America’s Next Top Model, Eva Marcille. Shortly after wrapping up the BET awards, Nomzamo bagged another international gig which saw her hosting the centre stage at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.
While she was still celebrating her achievements in the US, Nomzamo sealed a massive deal with international cosmetics giant L’Oréal. She follows former brand advocate Terry Pheto.
In July, the ‘Nubian Princess’ received a nod for the African Pride Awards in the category of Outstanding Achievement In Film – Africa. Nomzamo went up against other talented Africa stars including the likes of Get Out star, Daniel Kaluuya; Nyokabi Gethaiga, Funke Akindele and Queen of Katwe lead-actress Madina Nalwanga as well as many others who have done outstanding work in the industry.
In November Nomzamo also hosted the Veuve Clicquot Elle Boss Awards in Johannesburg.
Overwhelmed by all the love she has received from her myriad of fans, Nomzamo Mbatha took to Instagram to celebrate her most recent milestone, expressing her gratitude for all that she has achieved in the year that’s coming to a close.
Thus, in a lengthy post on the social media platform, the actress mentioned almost everything she has achieved this year which she described as her most challenging and rewarding.
