Television host and radio presenter Bonang Matheba is easily one of South Africa’s brightest stars. At 29 years of age, the star has accomplished so much in her professional career. Her journey has certainly been an inspiring one and this July, Bonang plans to take her career to the next level as she launches her brand new reality show ‘Being Bonang’ on Vuzu Amp.
Bonang has millions of fans around the country and, for the first time ever, fans will get to know who the real Bonang Matheba is. The show will feature Bonang in her day-to-day business interactions alongside manager Jay Badza, snippets of her romance with AKA, her very close bond with her mom, the interwoven and often exhilarating relationship with her cousin Tebogo “Pinky Girl” Mekgwe, and good times with her friend Lorna Maseko.
What’s really exciting is that the show will also highlight how the now, more well-rounded, more successful Bonang has transcended beyond her ‘it girl’ status, with a successful radio show, massive public persona, and thriving MC career in the hopes of inspiring viewers to reach for their dreams as well.
Sphumelele Sibeko, Head of Reality for M-Net’s Local Entertainment Channels commented on the appeal behind the show, “It’s the show everyone’s been waiting for. Bonang is finally at a point in her life where she’s comfortable to give her fans a glimpse of what they’ve been so eagerly anticipating. Viewers will see her outright versatility: juggling business success with family, romance, and all out stardom. For the first time we will get to see Bonang the daughter, the entrepreneur, the lover, and the confidant.”
Bonang’s popularity has always fascinated me. While there are many popular celebrities in the country, her star shines brighter. She has such an incredible way of connecting with her audience, does her job professionally each and every time and refuses to speak out about the countless rumours that come her way. I’ve interacted with her a few times and her passion is something that really inspires me. I’m very excited to watch this show.
