Queen B's show broke the record of the number of people who tuned in to a SABC show.  Well, it's no surprise, as the show was highly talked about show on social media before it's debut and after it aired.

“A Very Bonang Year” gave viewers a look into the media personality's plans for her global expansion and her next steps in her career as she dominates as a businesswoman.

The good news was confirmed by Zandile Nkonyeni, Head of PR: SABC TV Channels.

"We are excited to announce that “A Very Bonang Year” reached a record-breaking 1,86 million viewership in its first episode of broadcast.

“This is unheard of for any broadcast platform in South Africa for a celebrity-driven reality show genre and at a time when SA viewers have more reality TV content to choose from.

“As a channel, we had intentionally stayed away from celeb reality and for our first attempt at this format, we are proud of this achievement as it further confirms a great decision the channel took in acquiring and partnering with the show”, said Nkonyeni.

Part two of A Very Bonang Year will air on Saturday, August 8 at 6 pm on SABC1.

Viewers will get to see more of Bonang's adventures that include receiving her E! Entertainment award, house hunting and being interviewed on The Breakfast Club by Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy.
