Over the years, Bonang has built not just a stellar career but a legendary brand, pioneering South African influencer culture. Bonang began her career as a television presenter, branching out into award shows and events. A huge milestone for Bonang, in terms of presenting, came when she co-hosted the Global Citizen Festival in December 2018, alongside names like Trevor Noah and Naomi Campbell.
Bonang also forged a name for herself in radio, hosting shows on YFM and Metro FM. She has also recently dipped her toes in movie and television production, founding the production company Bonang Matheba Entertainment. This led to her co-producing the documentary Public Figure and doing some time on reality TV, with her show Being Bonang airing on 1Magic.
One of Bonang’s most recent endeavours saw her venture into entrepreneurship with the launch of her luxury MCC brand, House of BNG.
