Alex Okosi, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Viacom International Media Networks (VIMN) Africa, “The BET Awards is one of the only awards ceremonies in the world that honours and recognises artists on a global platform. Having Nomzamo host the BET International Awards and Pearl being part of the event is a tremendous honour.”

Nomzamo Mbatha, “When I first found out I was nervous; 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."
