Bonang Matheba took to Glasgow, Scotland, to host the MTV European Music Awards red carpet show.

“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 EMAs. 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,” she said when she revealed the news weeks ago.

The TV presenter, radio personality and media darling has a close relationship with MTV and “They offered to take me along to the awards and have me document the EMAs weekend, to give viewers a different angle. I was like ‘Oh my God, absolutely’. I want a reality approach – the red carpet, behind-the-scenes, pre-parties, after-parties – the stuff we don’t see.”

Queen B seems to have had a great time this past weekend:
