“I am nobody’s slave” says Bonang as TV show hangs in the balance

If Bonang Matheba has her way, Being Bonang will not be aired for the foreseeable future.

“I’m nobody’s slave or cash cow. I will defend myself whenever ruthless people are trying to use my brand for their selfish agenda,” said the defiant Bonang.

“The next season of Being Bonang will not be aired until those who owe me pay me.’’ This follows Bonang’s public fight with her Executive Producer, Legend Manqele. 

The TV star previously described working on Season 3 of her reality show as the worst experience of her working life.

Last week, Manqele said the show was cancelled because of poor performance, but in an exclusive interview with Scrolla.Africa, Bonang rubbished the claim. 

“Until today, the ratings are unmatched by any reality​ TV in the country. So, that nonsense that the show was taken off the screens because of poor numbers is nothing but the reflection of how bitter other people are,” she said. Bonang’s manager Dawn Phillips also disagreed with Manqele’s version.

Bonang said truth has a funny way of coming out and history will judge those who are trying to use her brand harshly.

Asked if she will ever consider shooting Being Bonang again on the basis that whoever owes her money were to pay her, Queen B refused to answer.
