Bonang Matheba, DJ Zinhle and Nompendulo Mkhatshwa on what makes #BlackGirlsRock!

Tracee Ellis Ross is one of Hollywood’s favourite black comediennes since her days on Girlfriends and most recently, Blackish. When BET announced that she would be returning as the host of Black Girls Rock this year, I knew that we were in for an entertaining show filled with laughs.

She opened the show with a hilarious skit honouring some of the world’s biggest divas such as Beyoncé, Chaka Khan and her very own mother, Diana Ross – changing wigs to symbolise the divas as she worked her way through their iconic choreography.

Seeing fan posted videos on social media has made me excited to see the whole show which airs on BET here tomorrow at 8pm. Ahead of this, the awards show which aims to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of women of colour asked some of South Africa’s favourite black girls what they consider to be a black girl who rocks.

Watch below as Bonang Matheba, DJ Zinhle and Nompendulo Mkhatshwa give their own definitions.


Catch the 10th anniversary Black Girls Rock! Awards on BET (DStv channel 129) tomorrow at 8pm.
