Bonang Matheba’s hosting duties at the Miss South Africa pageant on Sunday included having to introduce DJ Zinhle – the woman whom she accused of cheating with AKA while she was pregnant.
The moment was made more awkward thanks to a little shade thrown by TV presenter Denise Zimba.
During the ceremony, Bonang approached Denise who was seated in the audience.
“You are a big party girl, right? On Wedding Bashers you’re all about entertainment, so are you ready for all our performances this evening?” Queen B asked Denise.
A shady Denise replied: “I am very, very excited for DJ Zinhle. Oh my gosh I’m obsessed with her…”
Sjoe! Bonang took the comment in her stride and did not bat an eyelid.
“She’s coming up next, are you ready for that? Is everybody ready for that?” a seemingly unfazed Bonang asked.

While many social media users praised Bonang for her professional attitude during the awkward moment, others could not stop laughing at the exchange
The poor girl didn’t even finish up what she wanted to say

Actually that’s very unprofessional taking away the mic before she could finish talking rude and unprofessional

I dont like that chihuahua Denise Zimba either but y’all acting like people aren’t allowed to bring up Zinhle’s name in the presence of your faux queen. So now people gotta walk on eggshells around your precious Bonang? Imagine. pic.twitter.com/bLnAN6O2WS

We doubt DJ Zinhle is fazed by all the drama. Zinhle, who will soon release a self-help book for women, says she is all about forgiveness.
“My first real lesson with forgiveness was with my dad when he passed. Not forgiving is when you are angry and holding a grudge… it’s energy. It’s exhausting. And you have to wake up every day and remember that that person did you wrong,” she told Dennis Ngango in a recent interview.
Zinhle has been known to defend Bonang from haters and has clearly moved on from the cheating drama.
