Bonang returns to SABC1 with a new show: ‘A very Bonang Year’

Bonang new shows premiers early August on SABC1

After capturing the hearts of Mzansi as a presenter on SABC1’s entertainment show Live Amp more than a decade ago, media mo’gul Bonang Matheba has returned to the channel with a new reality show.

The star has been teasing the new show, based in part on her time and experiences in the US last year, for several months. There were talks about it being a holiday special or an exclusive on a streaming service.

Fans were finally put out of their misery on Tuesday night when it was announced that the highly-anticipated series, now named ‘A Very Bonang Year‘, had found a home on SABC1.

Speaking at a virtual media launch on Tuesday, Bonang spoke old how 2019 was one of the biggest years in her career, and fans will finally be able to see what she has been up to.

“I thought because 2019 was such a big year, I want everybody to be able to see what the hell I have actually been up to. I thought this is the perfect time to bring the story back home, to come home.”

She said the show will inspire viewers to not give up on their dreams and have their own great year.

The show will follow Bonang on her “global expansion”,  journeying from Prague to London, Manchester, New York and Los Angeles.

A teaser for the show was released, showing several behind the scenes moments from Bonang’s trip.

The show officially premieres on Saturday 1st of August 2020.

Sama nominations reignite beef between Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee

Maphorisa and Prince Kaybee don’t seem to give each other a break.

Like the Covid-19 pandemic, beef between Amapiano musicians Prince Kaybee and DJ Maphorisa doesn’t look like it will end any time soon.

The pair dug up the hatchet again over the weekend when Maphorisa weighed in on the SA Music Awards (Samas) nominees.

The top 20 shortlist for Record of the Year and Music Video of the Year awards were revealed last Thursday, with several big omissions.

Master KG, Sho Madjozi and Makhadzi were some of the artists fans thought should have been nominated.

Maphorisa slammed the awards, saying there needed to be a change in the way artists were selected for the awards.

Kaybee has received the most nominations so far, with his hits Gugulethu, featuring Afro Brothers, Indlovukazi and SUPTA, and Fetch Your Life, featuring Msaki,  nominated in both categories.

He was watching Maphorisa’s rant and hit his rival with a simple “subaweak”.

Phori was having none of it and told Prince Kaybee to go buy his masters before he speaks.

He added that he was at level: international and was not bothered about the Samas,  beyond speaking out for Limpopo artists who had been snubbed.

Kaybee had, however, already lost interest and moved on to provoking his other rival,  Cassper Nyovest.

The star had the streets in meltdown mode when he teased the visuals for his new music video, featuring a bus with Cassper’s nickname on it.

As one fan pointed out, if he doesn’t win at the Samas, at least Kaybee gets the award for “Pettiest Artist of the Year”.

Mihlali hits back: I will not be silent about the killing of my people

Mihlali refuses to keep quiet on the killings of the black community saying “I will never be quiet about the killing of my people.”

The whole world lent their voices to the #BlackLivesMatter movement that has been trending worldwide since the death of an unarmed African Black American man, George Floyd, and when Mihlali took to her Instagram to do the same and sharing how she felt on the topic, one of her followers issued her a warning.

According to the follower, she believes that Mihlali is jeopardising her opportunities to make money by being vocal about social matters.

Influencer Mihlali Ndamase did not mince her words when she shut down the user on Twitter who asked her via the DM’s not to comment on the black lives matter movement or the death of black people and sis wasn’t impressed at all!

“I will not be silent about the killing of my people. Where one door closes many will open, so if any brand does not want to be associated with me after this so be it, at least I will lose “a bag” knowing that I wasn’t silent during this time, because silence will not protect us,” Mihlali said.

The vlogger added that being silent at a time like this would be a personal regret.

“I would hate to look back and recall only posting aesthetics when my people were being killed and treated unfairly. So do not tell me about being quiet,” she went on to say.

Pinky Girl quit her IT job after the world realised she was related to Bonang

Even with the high unemployment rate in SA, reality TV star Tebogo aka Pinky Girl Mekgwe had the guts to quit her day job after her colleagues found that she was related to Bonang Matheba.

Having worked in IT for seven years, PinkyGirl resigned last year, claiming she was treated “differently” by her colleagues because she is Bonang’s cousin.

In an interview with Move Magazine Pinky said, “I quit when my colleagues realised I was related to Bonang. Some started acting awkward. Especially, my female colleagues gave me a hard time. Some even called me Bonang’s handbag because I was always with her and they said all I do is hang around her.”

Paving a new career path, PinkyGirl publicly decided that she was going to pursue a career as a DJ.

“I’ve been practising, and because I’m a technical person, I picked up a lot in the first week from my mentor.”

Pinky recently tried her hand at presenting, appearing on V-Entertainment.

During a segment on the show, the reality star encouraged people to tune in to the show and catch her on Being Bonang.

A clip of this was shared online and went viral with some claiming that she was not good enough for TV, and should “stop confusing herself”.
