Last year, Bonang Matheba had a tumultuous year. In what was considered one of her most “quite eras” considering that she did not dominate headlines and hosting gigs as she used to in the past. A fact which could have to do with the matter of her legal battles in order to assert the ownership of her sparkling wine brand, House of BNG.
In 2022, Matheba would only occasionally grab headlines. Whether it was when she hosted Global Citizen as her first big gig of 2022, or becoming the ambassador of Nivea following the matter of her without makeup trending, or most recently, her collaboration with Steve Madden.
Matheba in 2022 did not do what she is most beloved for by her fanbase, and that is television presenting and hosting. Nor did she return to radio as since she left Metro FM in a huff a years back, calls for her to return to radio have been abundant.
I hope we get an entire different show. Being Bonang international on steroids. https://t.co/CwiEzt7XPc

Bonang should try us out with a proper talk show this year. All the country has is that terrible podcast

But now it seems that her absence from the public eye might have to do with the fact that Matheba is in love and is looking to preserve her relationship and the privacy thereof as long as possible.

As such, while there is mystery surrounding this man. At least there has been a citing of Matheba recently as fans of the media personality were calling for her return on social media as she seems to have taken a break even from posting on Instagram.
