Bonang Matheba, who is currently in New York, stopped by for an interview with DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God on “The Breakfast Club.”
The interview started with Bonang Matheba talking about how she got into the South African entertainment industry, and she revealed how she had to convince her parents, to give her the chance to prove that she could successfully pursue a “non-traditional” profession.
She goes on to speak about the success of her own sparkling wine, House of BNG, her passion for sending Black girls to school, and how she’s in New York to shoot a pilot for a “Christmas special” she’s working on for South Africans back home.
Asked by DJ Envy whether she feels Africans “look down on African-Americans,” Matheba says that they don’t. “I don’t think ‘look down’ is the word,” she adds. “Black Americans are very out there, speak very loud, very confident, very tall. Black Americans are similar to Nigerians, South Africans are very humble, very quiet, relatable and down to earth.”
Towards the end of the interview, Bonang speaks about making major moves in America and describes how she wants to be the best of the best. When Charlamagne Tha God asks her if she has a plan for that, Matheba quips, “Absolutely. I’m on The Breakfast Club so I think my plan is going very well.”
