Bonang Matheba is one of the most prominent and popular entertainment personalities/models in South Africa and this has been shown by a recent honour from Lego that cannot be overstated. The company made a Lego figurine of the beautiful, and at times controversial celebrity to celebrate 'Mandela' day. When an entertainer is provided such an honour it is an indication that they are someone who is considered a 'leader' of huge proportions and whatever one might feel about her that is something that cannot be denied.
An example of her influence was illustrated when approximately one month ago she announced the Gumtree Auction Boutique. The campaign to raise funds to donate to the Nelson Mandela Foundation led to her devoted fans accumulating over R13 000. In addition to this amount Gumtree decided to donate an additional R100 000 to the campaign and thus the model helped raise over R113 000 for the Nelson Mandela campaign.
She is currently one of the most talked about models/entertainment personalities in South Africa as whatever she does draws major attention whether it be her leaving one radio station because they want her all for themselves or her travelling to the United States to watch Beyonce and Jay Z in concert it is apparent that she is someone that young girls in South Africa look up to and admire.
Her Bonang for Distraction lingerie line is a huge seller in South Africa as it is being sold throughout South Africa and she is also a brand ambassador for Revlon South Africa.
Bonang Matheba is an entertainment personality/model who has the 'attention' of women and men throughout South Africa and as such is a star worthy of a Lego figurine, a huge honour but definitely a fitting one.
