Taraji P. Henson is coming to South Africa on a press tour for the fifth season of her smash hit show, Empire

The star’s week-long tour will include meet & greets, interviews, press conferences as well as participating in local charity work.

Taraji, aka Cookie Lyon, will close off her stay with an appearance at an exclusive ‘Women in Media’ event.

This is Taraji’s second visit to the country; in 2016 the actress visited Mandela House and the Kliptown Youth Foundation in Soweto.

However, earlier this year the Empire actress, alongside fellow Hollywood star Halle Berry, was forced to deny being part of a panel for the ‘Women in Media’ conference that was expected to be held at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg. The conference, which drew much controversy on social media, has since been cancelled.
