Her fans like to call her the 'Queen of everything' and now, it seems as though Bonang Matheba has decided to start sipping that coolade...

In a recent interview with international news giant CNN, Matheba discussed becoming the face of Ipanema, hosting the MAMAs and becoming Revlon's first African brand ambassador.Β 

"A little black girl from Mafikeng could never imagine it being possible," she said.

The media personality did address her lack of a voice when it comes to issues pertaining to her personal life, attacks on social media and topical issues in general.Β 

"I think anybody that knows me knows my rules -- silence has a lot of power," she explained.

Now that she's the queen of everything in South Africa, what's next?Β 

Well her plan is to replicate her local success across the continent before tackling the rest of the world. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
