It is evident that Bonang Matheba is one of the most influential young women in South Africa. Having achieved a lot in the media and entertainment industry, the television personnel has also engaged in a couple of businesses that include a lingerie label and most recently a champagne collection.
In an interview with Trending SA last night, Queen Bee as she is popularly known mentioned that she is looking forward to having a school or a university in her name in the future.
“I want to involve a lot of South Africans because I am South African. I see me in the form of a school or a university. I want to be remembered not for frivolous things. What is the purpose of having all of these good things if it's not going to change someone’s life? When I started the house of BnG, I was like I want to be a billionaire and bring all that money home. If the Motsepe’s are doing it, I can also do it” she said.
She revealed that she has engaged in a lot of business ventures so that she will have financial sustenance when her media career demises.
“Everything that I do, my App, my book, my reality show, my lingerie and now my champagne is Bonang by Bonang for Bonang.
“I wanted to make sure that what I do now is something that lasts me for a long time. I can't be on television screens for 20-35 years so I need something that is going to make sense to me in 30 years and still bring me a lot of income and make sure that I am comfortable."
She also mentioned that hard work has been the spinal cord for her achievements and she enjoys her job very much.
I am doing a lot of things because I want to and it is fun. I am a workaholic. I love to be busy and I enjoy it. My job makes me happy, I get all sorts of fun things, meet people, travel around the world, wear some awesome clothes and inspire people, It is just fun, I love it but also, I am a hard worker and I know the way to make my life awesome is to fit in the hours and House of BnG is the love of my life, something that has been in the making for the past two years.
Queen Bee said that she gets her Mojo to succeed in everything she does from the people who are close to her and her career depends on them. She also opened up that her movie Public Figure will premiere this June in South Africa.
“I take the people that I love along with what I do.The job that I do allows me to do that so I take my friends and family along.It is important because if you are happy or unhappy it always reflects on you when you are at work. My joy comes from the people I spend time with because I know that if I am happy, my skin will be popping, I take care of myself and my relationships take care of me so they come first,” she said.
Bonang remains one of the most recognised young women in the media and business world in Africa.
