Are there any superlatives left that we can use to describe Bonang Matheba?
Because she clearly is beyond description right now.
We also want to pray the way she does at the beginning of the year and also want to know what she says when she prays because every single one of her dreams just keeps coming true.
At the back of what has probably been the best year of her career as yet, she is closing out the decade as the first winner of E! Entertainment’s People’s Choice Awards African Influencer of the Year.
Nominated alongside the continent’s biggest musicians, including Tiwa Savage, Wiz Kid, Yemi Alade, Davido, Cassper Nyovest and Diamond Platnumz and TV personality, Minnie Dlamini, she was able to snatch the award from their grasp.
It’s surprising mainly because she was up against a couple of Nigerian musicians and if you know anything about our West African brothers and sisters, is that they vote hard for their compatriots.
But then again, Bonang has made inroads into the continent, is known and well loved by many and is probably the most famous African media personality.
She will be going to to receive the award on the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards.
Ahead of her trip to Santa Monica to accept the award, we spoke to her about winning, moving to the US and what the highlight of her year is.
