Bonang Matheba’s MTV gig has undoubtedly left an indelible mark on the minds of some big shots in the industry.
Aside making South Africans really proud, the TV star also earned the respect of MTV bigwigs.
This follows her recent role as MTV MAMA host. Irrespective of the very short notice, Bonang brought her A-game as always and pulled off a flawless show.
Consequently, Bonang Matheba’s MTV gig had MTV bigwigs gushing over her.
Bonang was told about the gig on a Thursday night. The show was on Saturday. That’s a little over 24 hours to prepare to host one of the biggest award events in Africa and the world.
However, the thought of taking up the hosting of MTV MAMAs was not hard for our girl. She did not hesitate or fret over the idea. Sources say she was so comfortable in herself and the organisers had faith that she could handle it. And she did.
The TV personality also had her side-kicks at the event who helped to ease off the pressure. The event was watched by millions of people across the globe.
And now that the bigwigs have confirmed B’s professionalism, they might just call her up next year to reprise the role. This time, alone. And of course, she will nail it again.
Meanwhile, the Gupta-sponsored ANN7 South African of the Year Awards (SATY) has been postponed after the EFF made a clarion call all South Africans to boycott the event.
The EFF issued a statement calling on celebrities, including Bonang and Somizi, to cancel their parts in the “criminal” event.
According to the statement, the Gupta family is trying to use the ceremony to legitimise “their criminal activities in South Africa.”
Bonang was supposed to host the event as well.
