South African media personality, Bonang Matheba turned 30 on July 8th. She had an amazing party to mark her day. Her boyfriend, rapper AKA, was in attendance and he showed her so much love.
At age 15, Bonang got her first break into television on SABC 2’s kids’ game series, Manhattan’s Fantasy Challenge. After her stint on the kids’ series, Bonang put her focus back in her studies. After high school she enrolled in a Marketing course at the University of Johannesburg.
In 2007, she cut her studies short after she had auditioned as the host on South Africa’s most watched music series, LIVE. When she got the job, her parents weren’t thrilled about it. They were concerned that a television career was not a real career and that it would not take her anywhere in life. Bonang has said in many interviews that she had to work very hard to convince her parents that dropping out of university was a good idea.
