South African actress and activist Nomzamo Mbatha can now add another accolade to her long list of accomplishments - a rose named after her.
Just hours after the announcement was made, she took to Twitter to share a video of herself and the rose that was named in her honour.
"Never in a million years did I ever think I would have a rose named after me or join this caliber of laureates... Yesterday was truly special. Thank you Ludwig Roses for this profound recognition," she later tweeted.
