Twit­ter back­lash for Queen B for com­pet­ing with AKA’s Kairo

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

BO­NANG Matheba knows how to party.

The birth­day girl, who turned 30 on June 25, held a lav­ish party at the week­end which is said to have cost R500 000.

Her 200 guests – in­clud­ing Nomzamo Mbatha, T-bo Touch, Khanyi Dhlomo, Maps Maponyane and Baset­sana Khu­malo – went home with gifts, in­clud­ing her book.

There were pretty bal­leri­nas and bot­tom­less cham­pagne at the pink-themed cel­e­bra­tion, held at Sum­mer Place in Hyde Park, Joburg.

The party was the cul­mi­na­tion of cel­e­bra­tions that in­cluded a New York trip with her boyfriend, rap­per AKA.

Her dress, drip­ping in pink with a lot of ruf­fles in the skirt, was cre­ated by de­signer Gert-Jo­han Coet­zee.

At least one per­son thought it was a hit.

@Th eR e a l _ Th a p el o tweeted: “Bo­nang’s dress is every­thing ; .... Yasss Queeeeeeen!!!”

The bal­leri­nas opened the floor

with a per­for­mance and then led the way for Bo­nang when she en­tered the hall danc­ing to AKA’s The World Is Yours.

But peo­ple were hat­ing on Bo­nang for hold­ing her party the same day as Kairo’s birth­day – her bae’s two-year-old daugh­ter with DJ Zinhle – and Minnie Dlamini’s wed­ding with beau Quin­ton Jones.

Some thought it was a case of Bo­nang try­ing to show up her celeb ri­val since her birth­day was al­most two weeks ago, while oth­ers thought she was be­ing petty and com­pet­i­tive by vy­ing for AKA’s at­ten­tion with his daugh­ter.

@TJRMakhetha tweeted: “Com­pet­ing with Minnie is one thing. Com­pet­ing with Kairo though? A child? Bo­nang needs help”

While AKA was with his daugh­ter on her birth­day and posted a cute video of her hav­ing cake, one asked why Bo­nang was ap­par­ently com­pet­ing with a child. – Staff Re­porter
