Speaking to Daily Sun, Bontle said she’s excited to be part of the SAMAs.
“I’m incredibly excited to be part of the Samas. It comes full circle for me because I hosted the Sama25 red carpet, so now to be on the main stage is mind-blowing, to be trusted with this huge responsibility is humbling,” she said.
Maleka also spoke to the daily newspaper, “The work we do is magical, whether it’s music, television or the arts, we always hope it resonates with complete strangers that we reach out to.”
