On Thursday, August 1st we attended the launch of Media mogul, Bonang Matheba’s long awaited book, “From A to B.”
Bonang’s career started out in youth and entertainment shows at the age of 15, but she really entered the lives of many South Africans with an electric on-screen presence on SABC 1’s music show Live in the early 2000s, and has been climbing ever since. Today she is the one who reigns supreme, having cemented herself as the queen of South African media, specialising as a media maven, MC, philanthropist, TV & radio presenter, fashionista and TV producer.
Her book was an amazing insight into the her ladder of success and the reality of being a celebrity in South Africa, we were impressed with how much actually went on behind the scenes as apposed to what you just see of her in everyday life. We were lucky enough to attend the launch in the hub of Jozi – The Diamond Walk in Sandton City.
“My career has been a testament to my name. In my line of work, I truly do live a life of being looked at. Whether it is a cover shoot, presenting a TV show, walking red carpets or posting a picture on Instagram, someone is always looking.”
