When you’re a Queen, your day doesn’t begin and end on your birthday. Fresh off celebrating her 30th birthday with an all Pink-themed soirée fit for royalty, Bonang Matheba is claiming yet another day, almost a month after her June 25th birthday. Yep, you guessed right! July 14th has been officially declared “BonangDay” (by GTC), marking the Queen of SA media’s highly anticipated return to TV.
Earlier this year, the E! Red Carpet Host announced what most of her fans have always been yearning for, a reality show based on her life as one of the most accomplished TV personalities our continent has seen. Being Bonang, a collaborative effort between Matheba’s production company, Bonang Matheba Entertainment, (Former VEntertainment Producer) Legend Manqele’s BarLeader and Vuzu Channel. “Proud to announce my brand new reality show, #BeingBonang, coming to VUZU AMP this July. Proudly brought to you by Bonang Matheba Entertainment & BarLeaderTV! Can’t wait to give you a glimpse into my world”, she excitedly shared with her fans. Being Bonang premiers on Vuzu, Friday, 14th July at 19:30.
Of course, only having one show premiere in a day is not enough when you’re a Queen. In true Bonang fashion, Mzansi Fridays will once again come alive when the Revlon SA Brand Ambassador b*dazzles TV screens across the country with a second TV show premiering on the same day. Hosted by Bonang, KFC Taste Kitchen, a new “reality cooking competition that takes home cooks on a journey of innovation & explosive taste” will make its debut this Friday on DStv’s Mzansi Magic, at 19:00.
What’s a mere day to a Queen when you can take over the whole week? Just yesterday, Bonang announced the arrival of her long awaited self-titled book, “Bonang, From A-B”. “One of the best days of my life! My 1st book is finally here! Wow man…what a moment! Years in the making… Can’t wait for you to read my story,” she said. Sources close to the deal have hinted to a late July launch for the book.
Knowing Bonang and her obsession for her work, being this busy, witnessing her BME production company take on such big projects and being so happy and in love must be the best 30th gift.
Join in on the #BonangDay celebrations tomorrow, starting with KFC Taste Kitchen, which airs on Mzansi Magic at 19:00PM and Being Bonang at 19:30PM on Vuzu Amp.
