South African media personality Bonang Matheba was the MC for the Nelson Mandala Global Gift Gala on Tuesday night (April 24) at the Rosewood in London, England.
She was joined by host of the event, Vanessa Williams, who was quite glam on the red carpet.
The 55-year-old actress looked pretty in a shimmering silver and blue gown for hosting duties at the event and while on the red carpet, she revealed what the late political leader meant to her.
She said, “I know about his legacy and the impact it had not only on South Africa but the entire world. And it lives on, no matter how long it’s been since he’s passed. What he did lives on. I’m honored to be the honorary chair of Global and particularly to be honoring the Nelson Mandela foundation. It’s wonderful to be able to continue his work.”
Singer Beverley Knight, who performed for the South African leader twice in his lifeftime, also sang at the gala dinner.
