Bonang is constantly traveling across the globe, leaving us envious of her soft life. Sis is living up to her millionaire status and we are here for it. Bonang's fans have been calling for her to join Netflix's hit reality series Young, Famous and African and it seems their dream has finally come true. 

According to rumors, Matheba is the latest addition to the cast of the show. The reality series "follows a group of young, affluent, and famous A-list media personalities. Hailing from South Africa, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Uganda, this aspirational who’s who of music, media, fashion, and Insta stars comes together in Johannesburg, South Africa."

The cast includes Mzansi's "Queen of Bling" Khanyi Mbau, Nadia Nakai, Andile Ncube, Tanzanian superstar Diamond Platnumz; Nigeria’s Annie Macaulay-Idibia and her hubby Innocent “2Baba” Idibia and Zari Hassan. They all become one family and they are on a quest to find love, rekindle old flames and reboot struggling relationships as they continue to shine bright.

Sources close to the production told City Press that Matheba has already started filming for the second season of the show alongside Khanyi Mbau and Nadia Nakai

'"She joined the show as its new face. It is not yet clear who she is replacing, but she will come in because fans have been hinting at wanting her to join the show,” one source said.

The source said Bonang began filming when she went on a USA trip. “She has started filming already. In her first scenes, she will be seen on her trip to the US, when she was in the Hamptons in August and did not reveal what she was doing there. It will be revealed as part of her debut.”

Bonang recently announced that she had parted ways with her management Celebrity Services Africa (CSA) Global. The TV star crashed Twitter Space when she dropped the bombshell.

In a tweet the day before, Bonang said she was tired of being quiet and wated to vent. In a statement read out, she said she said she has terminated her contract with them, citing possible criminal conduct.
“Today I wish to share with you some disturbing news. So over the last few years I have been in a business relationship with a management group to represent my brand. I have put my trust in them and gave them stewardship over brand Bonang to build and support it across all mediums including entertainment, fashion, and entrepreneurship,” she said.

"Today I announce that I have terminated the contract with them and they no longer represent me, or any of my business ventures. Furthermore, I have instructed my lawyers to investigate the possibility of criminal conduct by the company and its representatives. I will revert over the next few days with more updates so that others can be aware of what I consider as their very unsavoury behaviour,” Bonang said before her space crashed.

Hitting back at B, the company accused her of being in breach of multiple contracts: "For the record, @Bonang Ms Matheba is currently in breach of multiple contracts with various clients as she has been derelict to these brands and indeed her own for the past six months. There is no merit in these scandalous allegation, we  look forward to the day in court with @Bonang; exposing the false and half truths that she has been spreading.

"We are currently awaiting a response from @Bonang's lawyers on legal letters already sent," they wrote.

It was reported in The Sunday Times that CSA had ended its relationship with BNG Veno Ventures' winemakers. As a result, Bonang Matheba may no longer own a majority stake in MCC.

The company said all intellectual property belongs to the company and Veno Ventures, despite Bonang's claim that she joined CSA Global while she had already bought House Of BNG.
