“I am so excited and humbled to be your host for this year’s 2019 Essence Fest,” she told her followers on Instagram.
Loni continued, “Let me tell you something, it’s the 25th anniversary so we are doing big things, y’all.”
The Real co-host then broke out into song and dance over her excitement for the festival which is in New Orleans. “I’m going to get me some shrimp, Étouffée, and all of that stuff,” she sang.
In one last boast, she screamed, “I’m the host, yeah!”
Loni also delivered the news on The Real before sharing the video filmed backstage. She jokingly told the camera, “I gotta get back to work!”
