Bonang Dorothy Matheba apparently lost her champagne's ownership, according to local media, the stunna is to be possibly removed as one of the shareholders. However, there is a much more deeper theory that was dissected by Ntsiki Mazwai.
Apparently, the brand has been in existence for years. It was a failed innovation by specific people. It was then decided that, it would be branded with Bonang Matheba's identity to increase its sales. This was clearly beneficial for the brand because Matheba is the most influential woman in South Africa. In fact, the real owner of the brand is Woolworths according to Ntsiki Mazwai.
Matheba basically has no ownership of all these brands, but is a huge factor in terms of promoting them because of her general followers.
Moreover, a critical question that raised eyebrows was asked by a concerned South African regarding brands such as "House of BNG" , "MoFaya" by Dj Sbu and all Mzansi owned famous beverage brands.
"Where are all these beverages produced?". For example, you never hear someone saying they are going to work at a factory where there is production of Dj Sbu's energy drink , Bonang Matheba's champagnes or even Boity's.
It is unfortunate that excellence in South Africa is always short-lived. One minute a person is doing extremely well for themselves and the next there are cases, rumours and stances around their success. At this point, Bonang is not making any public comments. In fact, she last spoke on her viral tweeter space that took place about five days ago wherby she was was exposing her management company.
Hopefully, more clarity will be afforded to all the questions that South Africans have. Especially those that have supported Bonang's brand since day one.
