Bonang's NYC Pipe Dream

Feb 19, 2019, 03:35 PM

The hustle and bustle of New York City is almost every filmmaker's dream location to shoot at. The skyscraper buildings are guaranteed to be great and enticing viewing for audiences around the world.

With an upcoming season three of 1Magic's sizzling reality show (Being Bonang), South Africa's media darling, Bonang Matheba is one of those creatives that want the beautiful shots of the exciting New York as a backdrop. But big dreams require big money right? Well things might freeze for our Queen B as she is affectionately know in these streets.

This is after reports that the calculated budget for the upcoming season of Being Bonang season three might not be enough to cover the costs for Bonang's dream location in New York.

According to Sunday Sun Bonang Matheba's dream to even move to New York might not be actualised because too many announcements were made without her signing any contract.

New York City would be used as a setting for season three of Being Bonang. However that might take a while because the admin for this entire production is tight. Sources that spoke to the publication mentioned that a budget of R3,million might not be enough to cover the overall costs including, accommodation, flights and food (amongst other things), unless if Bonang decides to match the allocated budget with money from her own pocket.

Sponsorship is also another option, and a reputable brand such as Bonang's will probably not hassle that deep for one as it was reported in the article that her management is not fully coming through for her.

Only time will tell if she will be able to pull this massive production off. One thing is certain though, the show is going to be lit regardless of the location.
