Today, the first lady of South Africa’s entertainment industry, Queen B Matheba, is turning a good 33 years old. We cannot dispute the fact that life has been nothing but a sweet journey for her since she decided to pursue a career in television presenting.
On the 25th of June 1987, the Matheba family was blessed with a sweet addition to the family. Little did they know that their bundle of joy would grow up to have such an influence and impact in the world, hence many regard her as a role model.
Bonang is the first black South African to be featured on numerous magazines.
In 2011, Queen B Matheba became the first South African celebrity to launch an online reality show called B*Dazzled. In 2013, she was the first international ambassador for the cosmetic brand Revlon, outside the US.
In 2014, she hosted the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards pre-show, which made her become the first South African to host the pre-ceremony. In 2015, she became the first African to be given an E! News Special Africa on E!.
In 2016, she graced the cover of Forbes Woman Africa, alongside three other women who were all given a headline for being the Faces of Entrepreneurship. She released her book From A to B and premiered her own reality show Being Bonang, both in 2017. In 2018, she was featured on the power issue of GQ SA, for the September edition.
Fellow South Africans, today we celebrate the Queen of the entertainment industry, Bonang Matheba. Her fans, friends, and family have taken to social media to wish her Happy birthday.
Wishing you many more successful years sis, stay shining!
