Bonang Matheba has cemented her spot as one of the most popular celebrities to have ever come out of South Africa. The TV presenter started her career as the host of SABC 1’s popular music show ‘Live’ before venturing into radio as a presenter on youth station YFM. Since then, Bonang’s career has flourished. She has launched multiple fashion lines, became a presenter on Top Billing, hosted a popular radio show on Metro FM, hosted numerous television shows and MC gigs and even appeared in her very own reality show. Bonang has become an epitome of class and sophistication and continues to build an empire with her various projects and endorsement deals. Bonang is proof that hard work, being unapologetic and always pushing herself to the limit has affirmed that anything is possible.
Bonang has always been incredibly appreciative of her fans, and her featuring on Tropika Smoooth Fan is another way for her to engage with more fans personally. “My fans have always been important to me and I acknowledge them each and every day. They have allowed me to be who I am, and to find my biggest fan would be something truly special! You are where you are, not only through hard work but also because of your fans. They are the ones who keeps me going, through thick and thin. They inspire me each and every day, as much as I hope to inspire them. For me, it’s important to recognise that no one is an island, and that making it to the top means so much more when you have the support of those who have been there from day one,” says Bonang.
This week, four die-hard celebrity fans will compete in various interactive games in the hopes of being crowned Bonang’s smooothest fan. The winner will make it to the finals where they will compete against the smoootest fans of the other celebrity contestants where, after another round of games, the two top contestants will go head to head to win R250 000 cash and a Honda Amaze!
We asked her what fans might not know about her. Her answer? “I’m a real foodie – I just love a good chicken Caesar Salad. Drinks-wise, apart from a glass of champagne after hours, l love my Courvoisier signature cocktail, which is perfect for summer too!”
