Bonang: I’m a normal person with a cool job
MZANSI’S “it girl” Bonang Matheba says she is in the best space she has ever been, having rolled out several projects with which she has been intimately involved, including a reality show, a book, a cooking show, a set of emojis and a mobile app.
The launch of most of these happened in a manic 48 hours late last week and Matheba admitted it had been overwhelming.
“I’m happy. This has been in the making for more than a year but I do feel overwhelmed, like it is all happening at the same time. I have put in so much time and effort and now I am just sitting back and taking it all in,” she said.
She said she was excited to see how fans respond to her reality show which debuted on Vuzu Amp last Friday.
“I was so nervous because I’ve been such a private person for such a long time but I am now at a point where I am so comfortable with myself that I don’t mind sharing it. The show will dispel a lot of myths: that I am a bitch and an ice queen.
“People don’t know that I am funny, that I am laid back, that I am ratchet, that I love to dance, that I am loud and that I am authentically and proudly Tswana. People are going to say: ‘Actually, she is very chilled.’ I am a normal person. I just happened to have a really cool job,” Matheba said.
Matheba recently threw a lavish 30th birthday party and has won the heart of rapper AKA.
“I am proud to be his and he is proud to be mine,” she said. Matheba’s book
is available at bookstores nationwide.
