Anthony Anderson, who won an NAACP Image Award this year for his starring role on ABC’s “Black-ish,” will host the fifth edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards on July 18 in Durban, in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal.

The Mamas, as the awards are known, were revived last year after a three-year hiatus and aired live in 48 countries, including for the first time across sub-Saharan Africa on multiplatform network MTV Base. They also trended globally, including in the U.S., on Twitter.

Anderson, who besides starring in “Black-ish” is the show’s executive producer, and also hosts Food Network’s “Carnival Cravings with Anthony Anderson,” enthused about the gig in a statement.

“I’m so looking forward to my first trip to Durban and KwaZulu-Natal and honored to be hosting Mama 2015 on Nelson Mandela’s birthday – it’s going to be awesome!,” he said.
