This will be the first solo female cover from GQ SA in more than 8 years, with its minimalist approach on cover text and the single cover line “The Power Issue”.
“Our September Power issue is a celebration of everything that being powerful means in 2018 – confident, considered and consistent. I love being able to support and showcase dynamic South Africans. As one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, and with a proven track record of excellence and inspiration, no one is more suited to star on our Power Issue than the incomparable Bonang Matheba, and I’m thrilled to have collaborated with her,” explains GQ Editor-in-Chief, Nkosiyati Khumalo.
The September issue will be released and will be on shelves on Monday, 27thAugust which perfectly coincides with Women’s Month and there is no one who embodies the strength, intelligence and sheer force of will that is at the centre of every woman.
Bonang joins fellow powerhouse personalities, Roger Federer, Diddy and a host of others for one of the magazine’s biggest issues this year. To celebrate, GQ alongside Courvoisierhosted a cover party at The Four Seasons Hotel in Johannesburg on Thursday the 23rdof August. Along with a three course meal, guests will enjoy Bonang’s signature Courvoisiercocktail: Fleur De Courvoisier – a fruity and floral accompaniment perfect for celebrating SA’s reigning queen of media.
“It’s always an honour to be recognised for your work, especially in such a defining way. I’ve been blessed this year to achieve so many of my goals and to have that validated by one of the most powerful publications in media means the world to me. More than just a cover, this is an opportunity to inspire,” says cover star, Bonang Matheba.
