About the Show

Being Bonang is a South African docu-reality television series which follows Bonang Matheba in her day to day business, family and personal interactions.

She is featured in the series alongside manager Jay Badza, with snippets of her romance with AKA, her very close bond with her mother, the interwoven and often exhilarating relationship with her cousin Tebogo "Pinky Girl" Mekgwe, and good times with her friend Lorna Maseko.

The production also highlight how Bonang has transcended beyond her 'it girl' status with a successful radio show, highly exposed public persona and thriving MC career.

The series finds her juggling business success with family, romance and all out stardom and claims to show "Bonang the daughter, the entrepreneur, the lover and the confidante".

Being Bonang is produced by Barleader with Legend Manqele serving as executive producer and Bonang Matheba serving as co-executive producer.
