Actress and business woman Terry Pheto had a great weekend, she won two awards at the 4th annual International Achievement Recognition Awards (IARA Awards) in London.

Terry won the Best Actress 2017 award for her role in A United Kingdom, and the Best Actress TV / Drama 2017 for her role in the BET Nelson Mandela series. She says she is very excited by the win and is very happy and especially because the two films hold a strong message.

“Both A United Kingdom and Madiba portray very important stories. Seeing these stories travel globally has been a beautiful journey. It has been an absolute honour to be in a position to have played strong characters in both roles. Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela for example is one of the strongest women I know. I’m in awe of her strength and resilience after all she’s been through. She inspires me to believe that I can overcome any obstacles or challenges in life and still remain human, kind and unshaken," the star said.

Terry recently also revealed to DRUM that she has done an exciting Indie movie in London that should be released in 2018.
