"You steal from black creatives:" Bonang exposes her former brand manager in a series of tweets

In a series of tweets published since this evening, media personality Bonang Matheba exposed her former brand manager Davin Phillips.

Davin Phillips is the executive director of Celebrity Services Africa (CSA), an African entertainment powerhouse that represents NBA basketball player Emmanuel Mudiay, Oscar nominee actor Djimon Hounsou, and media personality herself Bonang Matheba.

Last October, however, Bonang terminated her contract and announced that she was pursuing legal action against CSA.

Clearly stating and tagging who Matheba was referring to in those tweets, she claimed that Phillips made her life a living hell. Not just hers, but her entire family.

Matheba claimed that Phillips, her former manager, was stealing from her. She went on to say that she isn't the first person Phillips has taken advantage of, claiming that he was notorious for stealing from his clients, particularly black creatives.

"15 years of my HARD work! You think you can swoop in and STEAL from?!!," said the media personality who recently hosted the Africa Magic Viewers' Choice Awards (AMVCAs).

Phillips tried but failed to steal her company House of BNG, according to the media personality. She described the act as follows:

"a heist gone wrong!"

She claimed that House of BNG was facilitated and finalised before Phillis arrived, yet he is attempting to steal her company.

At the start of 2022, IOL reported that CSA claimed they were instrumental in the establishment of the House of BNG.

This includes branding, naming, packaging, and distribution.

Tweeps were naturally glued to her feed, anticipating Bonang's next tweet. They voiced their opinions in response to her tweets exposing her manager.

Many people praised Bonang for tagging Phillips in her tweets so that everyone knew who she was talking about, as her tweets were a little vague for some.

Some simply wanted Bonang to handle the situation the same way she handled Phillips before things went south in Private.

Other Twitter users suggested that she create a Twitter space to discuss the problem.
