Speaking about her nomination in a statement to the media, Mbatha said: “To be seen and voted for as one of the top five by the kids of South Africa just melts my heart, as it’s a validation of what I do. The Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards is all about fun and celebration, the biggest kid’s party in the world. It’s ‘un-adult-terated’ fun, while honouring kids’ opinions, and taps into the kid in all of us.”
The awards, which will be hosted by DJ Khaled, is set to air on Nickelodeon, DStv channel 305, and Nick Toons, DStv channel 308, on Sunday 24 March 2019 at 5.05pm.
