Is Bonang a sangoma?

Bonang Matheba is not a sangoma, nor has she suggested she has a calling, but it was alleged by her ex-boyfriend, AKA, that she had bewitched him during their controversial relationship.

Bonang Matheba has never publicly stated that she is a sangoma. Throughout her illustrious career, the media personality has never spoken about having a calling or any related utterances. Moreover, Bonang is friends with the spiritually inclined Boity Thulo, but has never suggested that that is something they might have in common.

The suggestion that the former Top Billing presenter might be a sangoma may be due to the utterances of her ex-boyfriend, Kiernan “AKA” Forbes. The two are believed to have entered into a relationship while AKA was expecting his daughter, Kairo Forbes, with DJ Zinhle in 2015. Bonang and AKA’s relationship was short-lived, and their breakup was as controversial as the start of the relationship. This was largely because of AKA’s utterances about Bonang.

AKA claimed that he had found a black brick in his closet after breaking up with Bonang. The story soon gained traction, as it was alleged that Bonang had bewitched AKA into dating her. Bonang has never directly addressed the allegations.
