This is the second time Ighodaro will be hosting the ceremony.

Last year, the actress anchored the event alongside Anthony Anderson, the American actor.

The organisers released the nomination list for this year’s award ceremony in June.

She has also received several awards and recognitions for her talent.

Terrence J, on the other hand, is best known for hosting BET’s 106 & Park.


He has appeared in several Hollywood movies including ‘Think Like a Man’, ‘The Perfect Match’, and ‘The Beach Bum’.
