Taraji  P Henson Empire Cookie Lyon

Fans of Fox’s hit show, Empire, are in for a major treat in June.

Fox Africa announced on Tuesday that Taraji P Henson, best known for her role as Cookie Lyon, will be heading to our shores for a five-day trip.

The award-winning actress is also expected to do meet and greets with fans during her visit – and hopefully dish out some cookies like she did at the Golden Globes.

The trip coincides with plans to open the FOX channel (DStv 125 / StarSat 131) to DStv Compact subscribers from the beginning of June.

Taraji’s visit has to be the best news since Multichoice flew Suits star Gabriel Macht, aka Harvey Specter, to Mzansi in 2015.
