Somizi allegedly called Bonang mediocre and she responded

No matter where in the world she may be, Bonang Matheba always makes it a point to interact with her fans on what has come to be known as #BeingBonangFridays. 

A fan then tagged her in a tweet conveying a message that they misunderstood and misattributed a quote to Matheba's former bestie, Somizi Mhlongo.

Various fans then came forward to clarify the statement...

The video clip in question (which you can watch here) is part of a promotional trailer for the upcoming season of MTV Base's 'Behind The Story,' hosted by Pearl Thusi who interviewed Somizi and a number of topical South African celebrities. 

In the clip, Somizi can be heard saying "when they compare two people that are extremely differently talented, the other one is way better and the other one is mediocre... so the less I give to the Bonang story, the better." 

It should be noted, however, that clips of this nature are edited for dramatic effect so the two sentences may actually not even be part of the same discussion.

Behind The Story season 2 kicks off on Wednesday 30th May 2018 at 21h30 CAT so only time will tell what Somizi ACTUALLY said. 

The fact that Bonang went off one random strangers' tweet is reminiscent of the story she told about how she ended their friendship off of hearsay...
