Sunday Tribune - - EVENTS -

BONANG Matheba is a house­hold name. Revlon’s brand am­bas­sador for South Africa, who will be launch­ing her Bonang by Cell C app soon al­ready has a hit re­al­ity show un­der her hat. Matheba will be host­ing one of the coun­try’s pre­mier so­cial cal­en­dar events, the Grand White Din­ner, which will take place in Dur­ban on Satur­day, April 21. Con­firmed per­form­ers in­clude Mafik­i­zolo and DJ Lloyd, while Amanda Black, Good Luck, Vusi Nova, Nathi, Mi Casa and Lira might be mak­ing an ap­pear­ance. I spoke to Matheba about style tips and what peo­ple can ex­pect for this year’s event.

There is no doubt you have stay­ing power in an in­dus­try that can be cut-throat and quite ageist.

What has con­trib­uted to your longevity and what mo­ti­vates you to do what you do?

For me it’s all about how you han­dle your­self. At a young age, I knew what it was to be a hard-work­ing per­son and to have a sense of pur­pose, and with that comes be­ing mo­ti­vated. While I love what I do, I would also say that life mo­ti­vates me, meet­ing peo­ple from var­i­ous walks of life, and not for­get­ting trav­el­ling around the world.

What one word best sums up you and your vi­sion? Pow­er­ful.

You have met and in­ter­viewed a num­ber of celebri­ties; name one who got you starstruck? Jen­nifer Anis­ton.

How would you de­scribe your style?

My per­sonal style has def­i­nitely evolved over the years and it also re­ally de­pends on my mood. How­ever, I would say it’s mostly glam­orous and el­e­gant.

Is there any­thing you would never wear? Crocs are a no-no for me.

Wear­ing white on white can be tricky, what are some of your dos and don’ts on wear­ing an all-white out­fit to the Grand White Din­ner?

Do dress com­fort­ably be­cause it will be a long day. Do wear your best out­fit and be sure to look fab­u­lous. Do bring a jacket for later in the evening.

Do not wear a dif­fer­ent colour and please stick to the theme.

Share a ran­dom fact about your­self, which not many peo­ple know.

Be happy, hap­pi­ness is... a choice.
