Bonang shared that after dominating the local industry she’s ready to compete with the best in the world. She shared in part: “Success in another country besides home – it’s a challenge. You know, I’m somebody that always tries to push the envelope. I’ve done a lot of many things at home. I think I’ve done a lot of everything at home you know.”
She continued: “And I think there is still that American dream for a lot of Africans and a lot of South Africans. I think there’s still a lot of when you come here and realise your dream like Trevor Noah, Charlize Theron, there are many South Africans and who have done that. And that’s what it is, I mean America is the pinnacle when it comes to entertainment. So any entertainer would want to break it here because that means you are the best of the best. And for me that is important if I say I’m the best, I want to be the best TV host, the best whatever it is. If you want to be the best of the best, you need to compete with the best of the best. And I think you find them in the United States of America.”
