South Africa's Queen B has indeed lost out on an incredible opportunity to take her brand to the rest of Africa by presenting on Moments with Mo, a Nigerian based syndicated talk show.
“The first two shows were planned. I knew about those. But then we got an offer from EbonyLife TV in Nigeria to do another talk show. “My manager Zoe [Msutwana] is working out the details, logistics and money, but it’s as good as done," Bonang Matheba told City Press earlier this year.
Had Bonang indeed clinched the deal, she would have cemented her brand across Africa, effectively becoming a media Mogul at 28 years old, something that most upcoming celebrities in SA would envy..
