Having been part of the film cast that scored South Africa an Oscar win for the movie Tsotsi, Terry Pheto is certainly no newbie to the world of bagging trophies for her work.
And on Saturday her winning streak continued as the actress and businesswoman walked away with the FILM award at the 6th annual Mbokodo Awards, created by Carol Bouwer Productions.
The Mbokodo Awards honour South African women who have made an exceptional contribution to the arts in South Africa. After extensive consultation with leading players within the arts, culture and heritage sector and having conducted thorough research, Terry Pheto was announced as the winner of the FILM category.
Carol Bouwer took to social media to share: “Asked to describe you in the adjudication sessions words such as young and so focused, driven, talented, gifted, magical on screen, beautiful, inspiring, humble and pure of the heart were amongst the expressions used. Terry you make it possible for young girls to dream, thank you for serving South Africa in such an elegant manner! Pure magic.”
