Terry Pheto (36) bagged yet another award, this time at the 6th annual Mbokodo Awards, where she walked away with the film award. The event – created by businesswoman Carol Bouwer – honours South African women who have made an exceptional contribution to the arts, culture and heritage sector in South Africa.

This honour comes after winning big in London earlier this year. The Soweto-born actress won two awards at the IARA Awards, the best actress award for her role in A United Kingdom and the best actress in a TV/drama award for her role in BET’s Madiba series. Terry also won best supporting actress at the National Film Awards UK earlier this year for her role in A United Kingdom.

Carol Bouwer took to social media to share why Terry deserved the award, writing “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”.

Terry also posted a pic of herself to Instagram, with a quote by Gerard C Eakedale, “Recognition is the greatest motivator”.
