If you don’t know South African’s Queen B; Bonang Matheba, then you probably don’t keep up with media and fashion news. Which is okay, we are here for you. Bonang Matheba is a South African TV host and presenter who has made a name for herself not only in the African media industry, but internationally as well.
She has raised the bar on what a TV host and Presenter should be, and managed to sail through milestones after milestone. It is no surprise therefore, that we love her.
Here are our top 4 reasons why we love Bonang Matheba.
Bonang Matheba is the Queen of Slay
Now Instagram slay has been around for a while, but you probably didn’t know that Bonang Matheba was one of the pioneers of this slay in Africa. That’s right, African’s Queen B gave us slay-age after slay-age, long before it ever became popular. She paved the way for other Africans to follow suit. Bonang doesn’t just slay on Instagram however, she also slays in life.
In her work…in her career, Bonang brings the slay wherever she goes. This is why SMA is crowing her the Queen of Slay, and we are loving her for it!
She Always gives Back
Don’t you just love it when women pull women up? Well, one of the biggest reasons why we love Bonang is for her philanthropic nature.
The Bonang Matheba Bursary Fund is a platform set to educate female children from underprivileged homes. She said “I believe that when you educate a girl child, you actually educate a community and you educate a family. As girls tend to become the head of the household, these young ladies pay their education forward; and an education is something that nobody can take away from you. It has a generational advantage and value.”
We love Bonang because she gives back.
She is a True Hustler
The Urban Dictionary defines a Hustler as someone who makes money in anyway they can. This is a perfect fit for Bonang who has different streams of income. From hosting shows, to daily TV hosting, all the way down to writing a book. Bonang is not just a pretty face, and has shown us what hard work get you.
She is Fun & Caring
If you have been keeping up with Bonang Matheba, then you know her show ‘Being Bonang‘. This show, which recently started it’s Season 2 shows Bonang in all her fun glory. She is a fun and hilarious person to watch, however what strikes me the most about the show is how caring she is towards her friends and the people around her in general.
It is no wonder therefore that her fans wanted more of it and brought her back for a second season.
