One of the biggest things to come out of Monday was the fact that Bonang Matheba now has champopo in her name, and she and Somizi Mhlongo are on speaking terms again.
It seems like Mzansi’s all-time fave pair of besties is back on track again after a snap of them together at Bonang’s launch of her new bubbly on Monday went viral.
The pair used to be the epitome of BFFs until they had a big fall out in 2016 that ended their #FriendshipGoals. Fans on both sides were heartbroken for months on end after it became clear that the duo weren’t looking to reconcile.
However in August 2018, when Bonang gave a shout out to Somizi at the Mzansi Magic Viewers’ Choice awards launch luncheon, fans began to be hopeful again.
Just as well, because a few weeks after that they were snapped together and seemed to be really meaning their friendship at SABC1’s Tropika Smooth fan competition in Cape Town.
The reactions to this week’s snap of them together were hilarious and here are three kinds that dominated social-media timelines.
Is this real?
So is Somizi and Bonang back together or they are just civil with each other?
