The original Netflix reality series which stars celebrities from the African continent has been on everyone’s lips, including media personality Somizi Mhlongo, who weighed in on Bonang Matheba’s attitude towards Luis Munana on season 2 of Young, Famous & African.
Speaking in a video shared on Instagram, the Metro FM presenter discussed his views on Bonang and Luis saying that Bonang was rude to Luis and the reality show tainted her brand.
“I felt that she overreacted in the scene with Luis. She was rude to Luis and he was a gentleman. She and Swanky really reached, they tried to make something out of nothing. It had to do with her and the production house but not the people in the show,” he said.
He also touched on Khanyi Mbau’s claim of how the producers edited the show to make her the villain.
“Bonang is too smart to leave for something stupid like that. She is very smart and business-minded. I’ve known Bonang for the longest time, she would never leave because of someone else. Most of the time she leaves because there were contractual obligations that were not met or there were clashes or things did not go the way she wanted them to go in terms of the production. Now they make Khanyi look like she is a villain.”
“There is a part of me when I was watching that scene, I was like, I don’t think Bonang should have taken this contract, but then again I get why she would take it because that platform gives you access to a new audience. I thought Bonang is smarter than that in terms of what to do, what to say and what not to say on TV. I think her emotions got the better of her. That’s now going to live with her for the rest of her career and her life. She will forever be reminded that she “f*cked the biggest stars in the continent.”
