Media mogul Oprah Winfrey introduces Nomzamo Mbatha as keynote speaker at her school's valedictory ceremony.
Nomzamo Mbatha revealed this on her Social media page, describing the moment as "It's not every day that you get introduced by the incomparable Oprah Winfrey (sic)."
The local star shared the caption with a clip of Oprah introducing her as the keynote speaker at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in SA.
Nomzamo explained how she had always wanted to attend Oprah's school when she was younger, but could not apply because she had already exceeded the age limit when the school first opened its doors.
"Fast forward to today and I am giving a Keynote Address at the Class of 2019 Valedictory Ceremony. What a full full circle it is for me today (sic), " she added.
Oprah sang Nomzamo's praises in her introductory message, calling the actress "one of the most sought-after women of influence on the continent of Africa."

It’s not everyday that you get to be introduced by the incomparable Oprah Winfrey. I remember when I was 14 and the announcement was made that she would be conducting interviews with young girls across the country that would join the academy, I was devastated!! I even considered dropping two grades down JUST so I could attend. To have the opportunity To be in an institution that nurtures young girls from all backgrounds. Fast forward to today and I am giving the Keynote Address at the Class of 2019 Valedictory Ceremony. What a full full circle it is for me today. What an honour for Mama O to introduce me. I know my angels in heaven are having a sing and dance. Today was a humbling day. Today was a good day. . . Dear 15 year old Zamo. Guess what, it gets sunnier as we go along.
