Much respect goes out to the incredible, Bonang Matheba. She is by far the biggest celebrity in South Africa. She’s done it all, radio, TV, web, print. Brands continue to use her to grow their respective brands and in turn, the Bonang brand continues to grow bigger, better and brighter. It’s incredible to watch such a young, talented woman score all these major deals and accolades and the latest one she can add to her name is with beauty house Revlon. Matheba was named as the South African ambassador yesterday, joining the likes of Halle Berry, Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde.
Big up to Matheba! See the full press release below:
