“When The @hollywoodreporter NAMES you ‘THE NEXT BIG THING’ (one of the most coveted titles) you pretty much cry and ask yourself … where did you get the courage to dream THIS big. THIS boldly… HONOURED… SPEECHLESS,” Nomzamo said.
“I’m in a limbo state of thankfulness and gratitude. Watch til the end… I’m such a cry baby lol,” she captioned her emotional video.
