Congrats on hosting E! Beyond the Red Carpet: SAMAs, how are you feeling?

I'm very excited. E! Entertainment is a great platform and them recognising African talent is phenomenal. I'm proud to be involved.

What kind of preparation goes into an event like that?

Quite a bit, but the E! team is great. In term of Minnie Dlamini, my team has it on lock down. It still takes a lot of work and communication though.

Who’s dressing you for the night?

We will have to wait and see...

How many outfits changes will we get to see?

Again, wait and see *smiles* but since I'm not hosting the show, I won't be changing much.

What kind of looks will you be going for?

Something that is aligned a lot to the international music awards shows, and on trend.

What can we expect from you on the night of the SAMAs?

The "wow" factor!

What advice would you give women about dressing for an event like the SAMAs?

Always try and be comfortable in what you're wearing. If you don't like it, don't let anyone force you to wear it. But it you just love it – everyone’s opinion won't matter.
