When Bonang was called to come save the 2016 MAMAs from a potential disaster one can only wonder how much she billed MTV for her service.

When it was announced that Bonang was going to be the official host of the MAMAs after Trevor Noah pulled out, the first question that came to mind was how much did Queen B charge the channel for such an unexpected gig?

Well, a source has revealed exclusively to ZAlebs that Queen B can pay-off a few loans with the MAMAs paycheck she received. Bonang reportedly made close to R500 000 on hosting the event. Trevor Noah who was set to host the awards show had to pull out at the last minute due to illness and Queen B was the only alternative for the MTV team. Bonang agreed to hosting the event but with the condition that the team fly her stylist, Harrison Crite, all the way from New York.

Harrison-styled the Queen in 5 showstopper gowns. With less than 24 hours to prepare, the Queen surely slayed the LIVE TV event. 

Nomzamo also reportedly earned R35000 from the job.

These two ladies are surely favored and it's also all thanks to their publicist/manager, Phumza Nohashe, who represents both ladies.

Apart from her numerous brand endorsements, Bonang was recently announced as the ambassador of shoe brand, Ipanema.

And Since Nomzamo went under Phumza's management we've seen her receive brand endorsements right left and centre, has travelled the world and just last week she announced that she was an Audi ambassador and was given a brand new Audie R8 to drive herself around the city.


It's been an amazing week! #iamvorsprung #BlessUp 🙏🏾 📸 @gabimbele
