FHM dubbed Bonang Matheba “SA’s Queen Of All Media” and I can’t think of a better description. The 23 year old is a TV and radio personality; owns a handbag label, has her own website and she’s an ambassador for several products (to name a few: she has a Diva Divine weave named after her, drives a sponsored Peugeot and is the face of Gert Johan Coetzee’s fashion label).
She’s a dominant figure in the entertainment industry and now she’s determined to conquer online media.
Last week Bonang held an intimate party where she celebrated her FHM cover and announced her latest venture: her own reality show. The show is billed as an inside look into her busy life and every week a 15 minute episode will be aired on her website.
But viewers got their first glimpse of Bonang’s lifestyle when she was featured in the debut episode of VUZU TV’s new lifestyle reality show, Top Shayela. Twitter was buzzing the night it was screened as fans watched in awe and admiration.
But amidst the rave reviews, there were Nonhle Thema‘s passive aggressive to arrogant tweets about other entertainers trying to copy her reality show ‘swag’.
Nonhle was the first South African to receive her own Reality Show “Nonhle Goes To Hollywood” but the show was discontinued after it received negative response. Her questionable tweets have spurred rumours that she might be jealous of Bonang’s popularity and success.
Here are some more pictures from Bonang’s B*Dazzled party:
It wasn’t a ladies only affair. I also spotted her rumoured boyfriend DJ Euphonik as well as Lulo Café, Da L.E.S, T Bo Touch, Kaos Matu, Gert Johan Coetzee and Linda Moeketsi, but my camera was dead by then.
But of course she’s jealous. B*’s show is waaaay better than hers. Nonhle’s show was a HUGE disappointment. we waited for it with baited breath, & she let us down. Now Ur Gal’s gonna show her how it’s done. Go B! I’m actually waiting for Nonhle’s fragrance to be another failure, she’s too pompous. Bonang’s gonna shut her up.
B’s more popular because she’s also on SABC1 (biggest following on biggest channel in SA) and she can be streetwise, can dance, can be girl-next- door, is approachable but classy, ambitioius & sophisticated at the same time, so she has a wider appeal. Nonhle is perhaps lesser known to those without DSTV (majority of population). Although down to earth, classy, more beautiful, likeable etc, she does appear to be less streetwise & out of touch with the common fan. I follow them both on social media. I love and I’m proud of them. Wishing them all the best. I’m not sure sure what their talent is but they sure can use what their mama’s gave them. kudos.
You Go Be!!! you are such an inspiration gal! keep on shinning and best of luch with your future endeavors!!! I am so very much proud of you.
you Go Bonang do your thing girl, if Nonhle was true to herself and not try to copy the kard!!!!!! and kendra and the other american reality showers then may be we wolid have loved it, i remember i washed for 5 minutes and i feel asleep thats how boring it was and im a queen of reality shows i sit the whole in front of the tv
