What on earth is going on? It’s the 10th of September, a day that is supposed to be a day of celebration, as entertainment giant E! Entertainment launches its first African production called E! News Special. The show will go ahead as planned at 8pm with the first guest, the ‘Queen’ of entertainment, Bonang Matheba.
But while E! Gets read to push the play button, Bonang has been hit a major blow… In the form of a very raw blog post by DJ Zinhle, in which seems claims Matheba and her former boyfriend (and father of her child) AKA had been romantically involved while Zinhle was pregnant. Ouch! On her blog the new mom says, “A week before our daughter was born, I found out about an affair between Kiernan (the father of my child) and Bonang Matheba. I also received confirmation of all rumours through an honest conversation which I had with Kiernan, who confirmed that the affair had been going on for over 5 months.” Read the full post here. Both Matheba and AKA have rubbished the reports, with Matheba’s team issuing a statement saying the matter is now in the hands of her legal team! AKA also released a statement dismissing the post:
For immediate release:
Johannesburg, Thursday, 10 September 2015
Press Statement on behalf of AKA
As a result of DJ Zinhle’s recent blog post, I feel the need to provide clarity on the allegations contained therein.
I would have preferred that this could have been dealt with privately. Break ups can be tough and emotionally draining for all involved. I would like to add that myself and Bonang Matheba are not an item and never have been.
My energies are focused on my career and my daughter at this time.
Obviously social media is abuzz, with people voicing their opinions despite probably knowing any of the three personalities. I’m not even going to mention them here. You can see it all unfolding on Twitter. This is a serious matter, but damn South Africans know how to have a laugh in tough times. Craziness.
My biggest question…. what on earth is going on here? Who is lying?
