Cape Town - One of South Africa’s favourite celebs, Nomzamo Mbatha, graduated from the University of Cape Town on Tuesday and she shared her journey with the country.

Nomzamo hinted last month that her graduation dress will be one that’s very close to her heart.

On Tuesday, just hours before her big event, she finally shared a glimpse of the sentimental dress.

In a video, which she shared on Twitter, she revealed her dress to her family and their reactions are very emotional.

Her dress is white with pictures of all those she “buried and those who held her heart”, including her sister Carla who died in 2014.

She dedicates this achievement to “Courage.  Resilience. Overcome”.

The local actress and TV personality went on to share footage from the graduation ceremony on Twitter. She can be seen walking across the stage, receiving her qualification and raising her fist in the air in tribute to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. The crowd then cheers in the background.

Congratulations, Nomzamo!
