“After having produced my own red carpet show for the South African Music Awards, and sharpening up my expertise as a broadcast professional, I am more than ready to do what I love the most on international platforms like the EMA’s. This opportunity is a showcase of Africa’s growth and involvement in the bigger picture of the international business of entertainment – I’m really exhilarated to be representing African media at MTV’s EMA red carpet”, said Queen B*
“ I can’t think of anybody more fitting for this kind of experience. Bonang is SA’s biggest celebrity and she’ll be on the Red Carpet of one of the biggest events in the world of music.
