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.
Khanyi Mbau’s was wearing a Naomi Campbell- esque weave yesterday at Jo’burg Fashion Week’s Fastrack event where she was modeling for Head Honcho (she’s their new brand ambassador). We asked her if it was from Diva Divine, a favourite of local celebs like Bonang Matheba, and this was her response…
