Johannesburg – Bonang Matheba, the self-proclaimed “Queen Of Everything” is showing no signs of slowing down in 2014. Just a few weeks into the New Year, Queen B*, as she is affectionately known, has announced an exciting partnership with retail giant Woolworths South Africa. The said partnership saw B* collaborate with the retailer in her 1st and gorgeously sexy lingerie line called ‘Distraction By Bonang’.

The elated beauty says she was very involved in the design process, which began mid-2013. “Walking into the partnership, I knew I wanted to put my heart and soul into the collection. I had very specific ideas I wanted to explore and a clear direction. I am truly grateful to Woolworths for granting me the freedom to tap into my creativity and the guidance throughout the process”, added Bonang.

In a recent interview, Bonang said the most important thing for her about the collection was that it had to be sexy, comfortable and enchanting, while embracing a woman’s femininity. The range, which comprises of three collections, is set to launch on January 20th at selected Woolworths stores, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Starting with transforming nail enamel from a functional product to a multi-coloured tapestry of beauty and self-expression, Revlon has spearheaded changes in beauty since 1932.

From there, founder Charles Revson, was inspired by the style of Hollywood’s female stars to position his brand as pure bold glamour, pushing boundaries, remaining modern and glamourous and connecting with women in a way meaningful to their lives and aspirations. This turned the cosmetics industry on its head and Revlon soon grew into a powerhouse synonymous with innovation.​​


As one of the first advertisers to feature celebrities rather than models, Revlon launched its iconic “The Most Unforgettable Women In the World Wear Revlon” campaign in the nineties. In a time when nearlyall supermodels were white Americans, it featured women from across the globe and was the first campaign to star three black women in a major cosmetics ad. Beverly Johnson, Louise Vyent and Iman represented Black American, Afro-European and African beauty.


And today Revlon is once again celebrating the diversity of beauty with the first ever Revlon South African Brand Ambassador – Bonang Matheba. This 25 year old is not just a model or style icon. She is an ambitious entrepreneur, YFM DJ and Top Billing presenter. She is an embodiment of what Revlon stands for – bold glamour.

Forbes named her One of the 13 African Celebrities To Watch In 2013 – and her more than 400 000 Twitter followers clearly agree. As the queen of South African Social Media, Radio and TV, the darling of South African youth, she now joins the great Revlon Ambassadors of past and present, such as Audrey Hepburn, Oprah Winfrey, Halle Berry, Emma Stone and Olivia Wilde, as the Company’s first local Revlon Brand Ambassador.

“We searched tirelessly for a local beauty celebrity that would inspire our beautiful young South African women to own every moment by simply looking their best. B* was the perfect choice and is quintessentially Revlon on all levels. We are proud to finally be able to announce her as our new Revlon Brand Ambassador.” – Pumza Payi, Marketing Director, Revlon South Africa

“As the first South African Brand Ambassador, it’s such an honour to become part of the Revlon story” – Bonang Matheba




Happy Tuesday honeys!!

What an awesome month I’m having.. After my Revlon announcement, I’m proud to say I’m on the July cover of the biggest magazine in the country- COSMOPOLITAN!! The issue goes on sale on June 24th, so PLEASE get a copy!!

Thank you for all the support and love!!



They have dubbed her the entertainment lady of NOW and there seems to be no stopping.

Bonang Matheba, the 25-year-old TV and Radio Personality has made it onto another power list, after being recognised by New African Magazine as one of 50 African Trailblazers under the age of 50.

Bonang is honoured among other powerful South African personalities like Charlize Theron, Lira, Khanyi Dlomo on this highly coveted list that acknowledges Pan African Success.

Not only has she set the presenting bar so high in South Africa, but her star continue to shine in all her other roles as a voice artist, handbag designer, actress, model and philanthropist. Bonang Matheba continues to show that there is nothing that she can’t do. She has graced the covers of almost every magazine in South Africa and is one of the few women with a verified twitter account with over 400 000 followers bowing down to her majesty.

“This was such a pleasant surprise to me, because when I wake up every morning to do what I do, its not in search of accolades but it is to perfect my craft, so when I do get acknowledged I always feel very humbled” says Bonang Matheba.

Earlier this year Forbes Africa Magazine named her one of the top women to watch out for in 2013 and it is becoming clear why the world must watch out for her. Her swift move across the entertainment spectre from the youthful SABC 1 platform to a more mature SABC 3 channel has elevated not only her level of presenting but also her fan base to an older more diverse demographic.

At the age of 25 the media belle is already referred to as a veteran of the media industry. She truly has established herself as the Queen of entertainment in South Africa, and it seems the rest of the continent is also watching.

The May edition of New African Magazine was guest edited by Ghanaian designer, Ozwald Boateng, a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader and founder of the Made in Africa Foundation. With a hot line up of African movers and shakers like MTV’s Alex Okosi, Barack Obama, musicians P-Square and D Banj, The 5O Trailblazers of the year 2013 are in a league of their own.
