A Very Bonang Year

According to Bonang Matheba, 2019 was one of the biggest years of her life in terms of her career.

The year began with the success of her wine brand House of BNG.

She went on to host the Miss South Africa pageant, went to Prague where she won a social media award, returned home, went to London where she shot a campaign, went to Manchester and debuted her film at the Manchester Film Festival.

She later flew to Los Angeles to pick up an E! Entertainment African Influencer of the Year award.

During all of this, she took the cameras to all of those places and this two-part special is a summation of what transpired.

The fifth and final season wraps up the series in a farewell event that will focus on Bruce Wayne's transformation into the caped crusader.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Year Zero": Two months after Gotham is cut off from the outside world, Jim Gordon and his men try to hold the precinct house as Jim and Bruce Wayne face the chaos Gotham City has become.

Their mission to keep the city safe becomes more complicated as the villains who survived the attack on the city begin to resurface and claim various territories.

Meanwhile, Selina Kyle grapples with how to deal with her uncertain future.
